Toronto Maple Leafs NHL Betting

It’s nice to see one of the NHL’s premier franchises be competitive again. Toronto has been mired in mediocrity for a long time, but the Maple Leafs are one of the Stanley Cup contenders entering this season. Mike Babcock has this franchise headed in the right direction, and Toronto fans are optimistic that this is they year the team finally breaks through.

The talent is there. Auston Matthews and John Tavares are excellent scorers, and Mitch Marner will make the team even deadlier provided he and Toronto can come to terms on a new deal. The blue line situation isn’t great, but the Maple Leafs were able to dump Nikita Zaitsev and his absurd contract, and they have a great offensive defenseman in Tyson Barrie.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are still looking to win their first playoff series since the NHL lockout. They have come close in each of the last three seasons, but they fell to Washington 4-2 in 2016-17 and went to seven games against Boston in each of the past two years.

Marner led Toronto with 94 points last season, while Tavares and Matthews were the team leaders in goals. The latter two were excellent on the power play, notching a combined 22 goals while up a skater. The Maple Leafs finished as one of the top five teams in scoring for the second straight season, but the blue line continues to struggle.

Toronto Maple Leafs NHL Playoffs

There was plenty of buzz surrounding Toronto ahead of this season. The Maple Leafs had been to the playoffs three straight times under Mike Babcock, but a tough start to the season led to the front office parting ways with their coach. Sheldon Keefe took over behind the bench, and he will look to lead Toronto to its first playoff series win since the lockout.

Toronto’s odds to win the Stanley Cup have doubled as the season has played out, yet this team is still dangerous since the Leafs boast the best trio of centers in the league. Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, and John Tavares were Toronto’s top three scorers this season, and their versatility on the power play makes them frightening. The trio combined to net 25 goals and 45 assists on the man advantage.

This team’s problem has been its defense. The Maple Leafs rank in the bottom five in goals against, high danger Corsi against, and high danger goals against in five-on-five situations.

Fortunately, they will play the offensively challenged Columbus Blue Jackets in their play-in series. Columbus has the fewest goals of any team in the postseason, but the Blue Jackets have arguably the best defensive tandem in the league in Zach Werenski and Seth Jones.

Frederik Andersen has been the No. 1 goaltender throughout the season, but he hasn’t been great in net for Toronto. Andersen was 29-13-7 in the regular season with a .909 save percentage and a 2.85 GAA.

Toronto Maple Leafs History

Founded in 1917 as the Toronto Arenas, the franchise became the St. Patricks before settling on the Maple Leafs in 1927. Toronto has won a total of 13 Stanley Cup titles, but the trophy case has been barren since the NHL expanded from its “Original Six” teams. The Maple Leafs haven’t even made it to the Stanley Cup Finals since 1967 despite being in the league’s most fertile market. Every other Canadian team save Winnipeg has at least played for the most prestigious trophy in sports, and the Jets at least won three Avco Cups in the WHA.

The Maple Leafs have boasted such regal hockey legends as Hap Day, Syl Aps, George Armstrong, Dave Keon, and Darryl Sittler in their history. Toronto has more players in the Hockey Hall of Fame than any other franchise, highlighting the team’s incredible past while casting a shadow on the present.
