(NHL) Montreal vs. Toronto, 10/13/2021 7:00 PM, Score: 1 - 2
Total: 5.50 | -129.00 Over
Result: Loss
NHL - The over is the play here. This total has fallen from a 6 to a 5.5 and there is solid value with the over per the simulation report. The Maple Leafs got solid goaltending overall last season but it was a bit of a surprise (in other words, do not expect a repeat). This team has been known for their high scoring ways long-term more than goaltending. Now, with Shane Matthews out for the first few games of this season this total has been held lower than it should be. Others will step up in his absence. The Canadiens have questions in goal too with Carey Price having taken a leave of absence. Montreal lost 17 of Jake Allen's 28 starts last season and he had a 2.68 GAA. He is getting the start here and there is strong value here. Play OVER (MTL/TOR)
