Canadiens Maple Leafs Betting Tips – Toronto Fights its Way Up The Standings

Posted by Don Melrose on 2/25/2013 6:20:59 PM

Montreal Canadiens @ Toronto Maple Leafs – Wednesday February 27, 2013 7:30PM EST

The sportsbook experts know that the Toronto Maple Leafs is in fourth place in the Northeast Division, but the Leafs is only four points out of the first place Montreal Canadiens. The fans in Toronto love it when the Canadiens come to town because every Toronto Maple Leafs fan hates the Montreal Canadiens. But there is something special about a Toronto-Montreal game when one of the teams is in first place and the other team has a chance at catching that first place team. The intensity on the ice will almost be matched by the intensity in the stands. This game will be something special to watch.

The betting websites did not expect the Montreal Canadiens to rocket from worst to first in the Northeast Division, but that is exactly what has happened. For all of his inconsistencies in net, goaltender Carey Price has been extremely good this season. He even made the evening sports highlights for a save he made while sitting on the bench during one game. The one thing that Montreal did to help its own cause is get bigger on defense. Now that the Canadiens has a sizeable corps of defensemen, it is easier for the forwards to exert themselves on the ice.

Why the Maple Leafs Will Win

The sports betting experts have noticed that Toronto goalie James Reimer is playing very well this season and that has been a huge boost to the Leafs. Last season, injuries had hampered Reimer’s play. But he is completely healthy this season and the team in front of him is putting pucks in the net as well. This is an extremely aggressive Toronto team that will try to keep Montreal pinned in its own end all game long. The Leafs loves the physical game as well, so look for a lot of work along the boards.

Why the Canadiens Will Win

The Montreal forwards have developed a new sense of courage now that there is a strong defense to back them up. The forwards no longer have to come back and help play defense in the Montreal end because the Montreal defense has that all under control. With Price playing at the top of his game and the Montreal forwards pressing the issue in the offensive zone, this could be a very long night for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Bottom Line

When that Montreal Canadiens logo skates onto Toronto ice, something happens to both of these teams. Because this game means a lot in the standings, it will be a battle from the beginning to the end with the fans getting very involved. Home ice will play a role in this game as it will be Toronto who will skate away with the two points it needs to get even closer to Montreal in the standings.

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs
