This season hasn’t been kind to the last place Canucks although they have split 8 games against Covid North Division rival Toronto.

Free Picks

On paper, and by the Canucks and Leafs records, it would seem that the Maple Leafs are an easy pick to win this one. But, taking into account that Toronto has clinched a playoff spot and the Canucks are still fighting for wins to get in the postseason, I think the best bet in this game, and if you’re looking for NHL Betting odds, is to take Vancouver at +235 [888sport]. I also like the way the Canucks have played Toronto tough this season as Vancouver has won 4 of the 8 games the teams have played.

As mentioned, head to head Vancouver and Toronto have split their 8 games with each winning 4 during this unusual Covid scheduled season. And Vancouver is on the outside of the playoffs looking in after missing several games this season (thanks COVID19). Vancouver hasn’t won in Toronto this season but streaks like this don’t last forever and so again, I say take Vancouver it just feels like an upset to me.

Thursday in Toronto the Leafs won 4-1 behind a goal and an assist by Forward Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews who scored his 36th goal of the season and has 60 points for his 5th straight year. Saturday will be the 9th and final time these two meet in this odd COVID season. If Vancouver is going to get a win it will need scoring from their first and second lines particularly Center Bo Horvat (16 goals and 17 assists) and Right Winger Brock Boeser who leads Vancouver with 17 goals on the season.
