How To Bet On Sabres Leafs – Buffalo Continues to Show Slow Improvement

Buffalo Sabres @ Toronto Maple Leafs – Thursday February 21, 2013 7:00PM EST

The betting sites have noticed that the Buffalo Sabres have been winning a lot more than it has been losing as of late. But much of that winning has come because of the significantly improved play of goaltender Ryan Miller. The Sabres is still playing horrible defense in front of Miller and Thomas Vanek remains the only real source of consistent offense from the Sabres’ forwards. But Buffalo is battling and making its most recent games competitive. A game between Buffalo and Toronto is always competitive, but this one should be very interesting to watch.

The sports betting experts figure that the Toronto Maple Leafs can keep on winning as long as goaltender James Reimer can continue to steal games. Toronto is not having any problems scoring goals, but it seems content to build up a lead and then let Reimer close the door. That may not be the best approach against a Sabres’ team that has been doing its best to play right down to the final whistle. Toronto has dominated Buffalo so far this season, but the Leafs will need to be very careful that it does not allow this game to slip away.

Why the Sabres Will Win

As long as Thomas Vanek and Ryan Miller are on the ice, the Sabres has a chance at winning just about any game it plays this season. The online sports book experts have noticed that the Sabres has handed the Northeast Division leading Boston Bruins its only two losses of the season. There is something to this Buffalo team, but it needs to put in a solid 60-minute effort if it wants to win this game. The idea that Buffalo can go into Toronto and pull out a win is not out of the question.

Why the Leafs Will Win

Toronto plays a very free-wheeling style of hockey that is fun for the fans but it has to be torture for the Leafs’ front office. Toronto has a bad habit of running up a lead and then leaving goalie James Reimer on his own in the third period. More often than not, Toronto’s approach of an all-out offensive attack in the third period has been effective. As long as the Leafs does not get careless in this game, it should be able to follow its game plan and come out with a win.

The Bottom Line

This is a shortened season and the Sabres does not have a whole lot of room for more failure. Buffalo has been playing better as of late, but it is still not a playoff contender. In this game, the Sabres will have a chance to create a more consistent offensive attack and try to pick up some desperately needed momentum. The Leafs will play its game as it has all season, and it may just backfire in this game.

Pick: Buffalo Sabres
