Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Detroit Red Wings

NHL Hockey: Thursday, October 11th 2018 7:30 PM EST TIME

The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to look to continue their hot start on the season as they head into Detroit to take on the Red Wings who are on the other side of the spectrum. The Maple Leafs are looking like a huge puck line play here, but could the Red Wings make an effort to keep it close?

Fast Start

The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to be an interesting team to watch this season as they have the fire power to make a real run this year. The Maple Leafs have started this year with some strong potential as they come into this game with a 3-1 record even after taking down the former undefeated Dallas Stars by the final score of 7-4. Truly this team looks like a winning side as they now have won back to back road games and looking to make it three in a row against the Detroit Red Wings.

Here is how the Maple Leafs separate themselves. The Maple Leafs have a star in Auston Mathews as he is already one of the top leading scorers on the season. Adding in fellow teammates of John Tavares and Mitch Marner who have been great on the left side. Also goalie Frederik Anderson has been great to start the season as he usually saves around 30 or more shots per game. With a weak Detroit Offense, expect this to be an easy walk in the park for the Maple Leafs.

Where Are The Wins?

The Detroit Red Wings are having a rough start to the season as they  have yet to win a game this season. The Red Wings are simple not the same team that used to reach the playoffs every single season as they now are in the bottom of the barrel as new teams are taking over the NHL. As for the Red Wings, they enter this game following a 3-2 loss against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.

The Detroit Red Wings come into this game with one of the worst offensives in the league as they barley got 19 shots in the loss against the Ducks. So how can the Red Wings beat the Toronto Maple Leafs? They need to step it up on the defensive back as the Maple Leafs are going to have a strong push to start the game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I love the Toronto Maple Leafs puck line value here. They have been one of the fastest teams so far this season as the Red Wings have looked like one of the slowest teams to the puck. They play around 65% of their game on their own front as the Maple Leafs are going to keep their winning streak going.

Prediction: Toronto Maple Leafs -1.0

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Even though the Detroit Red Wings can barley get a shot off in the first games of the season, they still have manage to score. Does not take a lot for the Red Wings to score. I can see another 15 shot game for Detroit but they manage to get a couple across thanks to a fast break with no help on the back line for Detroit.

Prediction: OVER 6.5
