Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs Betting Lines - Game Pick
The Senators make the short flight to the Big Smoke to take on the Leafs on Saturday night at the Air Canada Center. Toronto is a large -225 betting line favorite for this game with the total line offered at 6 goals.
Ottawa needs to start notching wins on a regular basis to have any chance of playing in the postseason, but it did take a step in the right direction with back-to-back victories at home against New Jersey and Nashville as an underdog. The other good sign is that the Senators scored a combined nine goals in those two wins. They now head back on the road at 7-14-4 this season with just one win in their last five road games.

Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs
With Wednesday’s 3-2 shootout victory against Nashville as -115 home favorites, the Maple Leafs have now won seven of their last nine games as part of a 32-19-5 record that has them eight points behind Tampa Bay for the top spot in the Atlantic Division. Auston Matthews continues to lead an offensive attack that is averaging 3.2 goals a game with 43 total points. With three goals and three assists in his last five starts, I think he will be the difference on Saturday in another Toronto win.
