Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Boston Bruins

Thursday, March 07, 2024 – 07:00 PM ET at TD Garden

Betting Trends

  • Toronto are 18-6-6 on the road this season.
  • The Maple Leafs are 6-4 against the Bruins in their previous 10 matchups.

Momentum to Pull Toronto Through

Despite losing to the Boston Bruins only two days ago, the Toronto Maple Leafs not only have to play them again tonight, but they faced off against the Buffalo Sabres last night.

Despite playing on the road in back-to-back games, we believe the momentum of playing two nights in a row might carry them to victory in this NHL matchup between two of the league’s biggest rivals.

NHL Best Bet

Toronto could very well lose tonight, this is purely a value pick, but with good reason. The Maple Leafs not only lost two nights ago to Boston, they got stomped 4-1 and were incredibly poor in that game.

This is a big chance for the team to show up and set things right and at +125 we believe the Leafs are good down to as low as +115 to win this NHL road matchup.

NHL Pick: Maple Leafs ML (+125) at Bet365

Vancouver Canucks vs. Vegas Golden Knights

Thursday, March 07, 2024 – 10:00 PM ET at T-Mobile Arena

Betting Trends

  • Quinn Hughes has scored the 4th most amount of assists this season and the best of any defenceman.
  • Las Vegas has been poor in recent home games, going 0-4 they allowed 20 goals and an average of five per game.
  • Quinn Hughes is second in the league in the +/- stats having been +33 when on the ice for his team this season.

Hughes to Get Back Into Form

Quinn Hughes has been recently going through a cold patch offensively, only scoring 7 points in 10 games (all assists). Although it must be said he is currently on a two-game scoring streak having scored two and one assists in his previous two games against the Anaheim Ducks and L.A Kings, both of which turned out to be 2-1 wins for the Canucks.

Hughes is looking to get back into form with three-point games in a row, while his team is seeking their 4th win in just their previous nine games.

NHL Best Bet

With the Golden Knights struggling defensively lately and Vancouver looking to bounce back from a cold patch with three wins in a row and on the road, they will likely have to rely on Quinn Hughes.

We like the +100 odds on Hughes to keep on putting assists on the board this season, this is beatable down to as low as -115 in our opinion.

NHL Pick: Quinn Hughes Over 0.5 Assists (+100) at Bet365

Philadelphia Flyers vs. Florida Panthers

Thursday, March 07, 2024 – 07:00 PM ET at Amerant Bank Arena

Betting Trends

  • Philadelphia are 2-7 in their last 9 games when playing on the road against Florida.
  • Philadelphia are 4-12 in their last 16 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference.

Florida is Unstoppable Right Now

Not only is Florida on a 16-4 run right now, they are also currently on a six-game winning streak and are 9-1 in their last 10 games. Ironically their only loss came in a game with a very low scoreline as they lost 1-0 to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Florida is one of the most feared teams in the league right now, sitting 1st in the Eastern Conference they only recently (as in yesterday) traded for Vladimir Tarasenko (a Stanley Cup winner with the St Louis Blues).

The Philadelphia Flyers have been punching a little this season, and kudos to them, they currently find themselves inside a playoff spot but it’s going to be hard to see them overcome a Florida team on home ice and red hot.

NHL Best Bet

Lay the juice and take the Panthers to win this game in regulation at -125 NHL betting odds. The Flyers are 4-6 in their previous ten games and have only won 3 of their previous 10 games on the road against Florida.

The Panthers are our pick to go all the way this season following their runners-up spot last year. This should be a walk in the Everglades for Florida.

NHL Pick: Florida Panthers in Regulation (-125) at Bet365
