The Anaheim Ducks continue an Eastern road trip when they visit the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night. The latter is aiming to keep the good vibes going.

This is the second of a back-to-back for the Ducks, who played Monday night in Ottawa. Toronto has had a couple of days to rest after an exciting contest against Calgary on Saturday.

Sheldon Keefe’s Maple Leafs are pinned as 1.5-point favourites on the NHL odds (-152 on the puck line). The over-under is 6.5.

Ducks vs. Maple Leafs NHL Betting Odds

The California club hasn’t had much luck against its Ontario foe in recent years. Going back to 2017, the Ducks are only 3-7 in 10 games against the Maple Leafs. It hasn’t helped that Anaheim’s seasons have been subpar. The last time they made a splash was back in the 2017-2018 campaign when they earned 101 points. Conversely, Toronto is an annual playoff contender. That said, one of those precious three wins came earlier this year at home. It was a close game, as both teams were in a 3-3 standoff at the end of regulation.

The Ducks’ struggles in the standings are reflected in their 11-18 record against the spread. There may be a ray of hope to give bettors a modicum of confidence as they have gone 5-5 in their 10 most recent opportunities to cover. It might not sound like much, but given how the campaign has gone, one needs to perceive the positives in such details.

Conversely, the Maple Leafs are giving their fans one heck of a show this year all the while disappointing bettors. Toronto is within striking distance of not only the Atlantic Division’s top seed but that of the Eastern Conference. That hasn’t translated to much success ATS, with the Leafs sitting at only 13-16. They’re a great team for the money line, less so the puck line.

Anaheim Ducks

Not only has the overall season not gone particularly well for Dallas Eakins’ ensemble, but neither have the last two contests despite playing relatively weak opponents. On Saturday, the Ducks concluded a homestand against the Sharks, who aren’t that much better. No dice, as San Jose skated its way to a comfortable 6-1 victory, pouncing on Anaheim’s tepid defence and goalie gaffs.

Monday night saw the team commence their road swing against the lowly Ottawa Senators. No luck there either, with the Senators claiming a 3-0 win that was almost 4-0 had it not been for a goalie interference call. Anaheim’s failings are both simple and complex: they can’t score and can’t prevent others from scoring on them. Their minus-53 goal differential is the worst in the NHL and it’s not even close.

Toronto Maple Leafs

What a game on Saturday night. It was an all-Canadian matchup with the Calgary Flames in town that lived up to the billing. Back and forth they went all night. The Flames led on no less than three separate occasions, yet the Leafs always fought back. Those who enjoy hockey of the high-flying variety got their money’s worth, with Toronto ultimately prevailing 5-4 in overtime.

Who should pinch the winner but the man of the hour, Mitch Marner? Nay, man of the month. The forward had already extended his point streak to 22 games with an assist on William Nylander‘s goal in the first period. Netting the game-winner in overtime was the icing on the cake.
