    Oilers at Maple Leafs: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks

    Prediction

    Oilers 5, Maple Leafs 4.

    Money line (ML)

    Run with the value on the visiting OILERS (+135) in what figures to be a fast-paced, high-scoring game in Toronto. The two rosters are flush with some of the most exciting, young talent in hockey. Edmonton has either scored or allowed 5 goals in three of its first four games.

    The Maple Leafs are No. 1 in Corsi For rating (total shot attempts) at 5-on-5. The Leafs are also third in scoring chances for at 5-on-5. Both teams are in the bottom 10 in scoring chances allowed, and they’re both fully capable of capitalizing on defensive mistakes by their opponent.

    Toronto has a sizable advantage in the analytic battle, but Edmonton routinely proves it doesn’t need that many chances. Andersen has just one quality start in his three appearances, and he and the Maple Leafs defense are being overvalued against an evenly-matched opponent on the offensive ends.

    Against the spread (ATS)

    There’s just enough value on the OILERS +1.5 (-200) to stay within 1 goal in a loss to make this a secondary play to the money line. All of the Oilers’ losses thus far have been by multi-goal margins, but two of the Leafs’ three wins were by single goals, including a 5-4 overtime victory against the Canadiens.

    Over/Under (O/U)

    The OVER 6.5 (-130) between the Oilers and Maple Leafs is the best play on Wednesday’s NHL slate.

    Add some player props such as Auston Matthews (-125), Leon Draisaitl (+130), Connor McDavid (+145) and John Tavares (+150) anytime goal scorers. Neither team has a defense pairing capable of shutting down the opposing star forwards.
