A win over the powerhouse Boston Bruins has the Edmonton Oilers feeling confident in their ability to exact revenge over Toronto – but the Maple Leafs will be far from a willing participant as the teams lock horns Monday at Scotiabank Arena. Toronto has gone a sizzling 11-1-1 in its previous 13 games to move to within striking distance of the Bruins atop the Atlantic Division, an incredible stretch that includes an impressive 4-1 triumph in Edmonton.

Oilers vs. Maple Leafs Betting Analysis

Oddsmakers have completely bought into the Maple Leafs’ transformation: Monday marks the fourth time in the past 10 games that Toronto finds itself at -200 or better, having gone 2-1 SU in the previous three games. And the Leafs have taken it up a notch in recent games, having outscored foes 13-4 during their current three-game winning streak. The Oilers, meanwhile, have lost each of their previous seven games against Toronto.

The total for this meeting is firm at 6.5, marking the fifth straight meeting between the teams that has carried that number. And with three of the previous four encounters coming in below the figure – including the Maple Leafs’ triumph at Rogers Place back on Dec. 14 – there could be plenty of interest in the Under. And that trend extends to Toronto’s other recent meetings with the Pacific, with the Leafs having gone 9-1 to the Under in their last 10 vs. the division.

Edmonton Oilers

Putting together back-to-back solid efforts has been a major issue for Edmonton as the calendar flips to 2020. The Oilers haven’t won consecutive games since Nov. 23-24, and are in tough to end that drought against a team that has outscored them by a 27-13 margin over their past seven showdowns. Connor McDavid had a goal in the win over Boston but has been far less impressive overall on the road than at home, with 28 points in 23 games.

Toronto Maple Leafs

It’s no secret how the Maple Leafs have managed to go from a team struggling to remain in the playoff hunt to one that has moved all the way back to +1000 to win the Stanley Cup. Toronto has scored four or more goals in 11 of its previous 13 games, with its 60 goals scored over that span easily the most in the league. Prop bettors should consider taking a flyer on Austin Matthews, who has produced an NHL-best 12 goals since Dec. 7.
