The Maple Leafs have won three straight at home, and are coming off a 3-1 victory over the New York Islanders. The Ducks opened their current five-game road trip with a 2-1 win in Boston on Monday, and arrive in Toronto looking to win three in a row for the first time since mid-November.

The Maple Leafs have garnered 80% of the betting action ahead, but have remained largely stable as a lofty -292 favourite. Pegged as +241 underdogs, the Ducks hit the ice sporting odds longer than +200 for the fourth time in as many games. The total sits at 6.0, with the UNDER sporting -115 odds despite heavy sports bettors support for the OVER.

Wednesday night’s matchup at Scotiabank Arena marks the second and final regular season meeting between these clubs. The Maple Leafs skated to a 5-1 win when they visited Anaheim on November 28, and have now topped the Ducks in six of seven meetings since March 2017. The Leafs have filled the net in three straight home wins over that stretch, averaging six goals per game. That has contributed to the current 4-2 run for the OVER in puck totals betting. However, Toronto has also allowed just 14 total goals over their past seven dates with the Ducks, and limited Anaheim to just a single marker on four occasions.

The Maple Leafs went 3-2-1 during their recent road trip, with four contests getting settled by one goal. Toronto allowed five or more goals in three of its six recent away dates, fueling a 4-2-1 run for the OVER. And while they enjoy a 5-1-0 run at home, the Leafs have allowed four or more goals three times over that stretch. The Ducks have scored 10 times during their two-game win streak after potting just four total goals during a preceding four-game slide. And with just one win in five road dates, Anaheim now sports a middling 8-9-3 road record.

The Ducks got a lift from the return of their leading scorer in Monday’s win in Boston. Sidelined for four games by COVID-19, Troy Terry contributed the game-winner against the Bruins, and has now tallied three goals and one assist in four road appearances. Goaltender John Gibson has also quickly bounced back from a bout with the coronavirus. Gibson has earned the win in three of four starts while allowing just six total goals. However, he has allowed four or more goals in two of three dates with Toronto.

Toronto Maple Leafs

The Maple Leafs received big contributions from Mitch Marner and Morgan Rielly in Saturday’s victory over the Isles. Marner scored for a third straight game, and has picked up five total points over that stretch. Rielly has turned in multi-point performances in two of the past three games, and has racked up 11 points over his past nine home appearances. Jack Campbell aims to rebound between the pipes after allowing five goals in three of his past four starts.
