This series has gone about as back-and-forth as it could possibly go. After the Blue Jackets earned a shutout victory in Game 1, the Maple Leafs responded with a shutout victory in Game 2. After Columbus pulled off a stunning 4-3 victory in Game 3, Toronto had a demoralizing (for Columbus) 4-3 victory in Game 4. In other words, the various numbers and statistics don’t seem as important or relevant as the intangibles when determining a winner for Game 5. There’s no denying that Toronto has the momentum, and that would naturally have us leaning its way. Fortunately, there are some numbers that support that inkling. The Maple Leafs have had the head-to-head success against their opponent (8-2-2 over their last 10), and they have been the superior road team (relevant in neutral-ice scenario). Best of all, Toronto is 33-28-9 as a favorite this season, while Columbus has been a mediocre 24-23-9 as an underdog. Following their dramatic Game 4 victory, this is clearly the Leafs’ game to lose–and we’re happy that there are some numbers to back up that sentiment. Take the Maple Leafs money line.

Where to wager on your NHL best bets
NHL games, as with all major US sports will have a multitude of markets available for every game offered by all leading online sportsbooks.
Alongside the importance of being selective in your wagering, and managing your bankroll, right up there with the most important factors in successful NHL bets are the odds.
NHL is a major US sport and as such sees a great deal of betting turnover with online sportsbooks. As a result, sportsbooks are keen to out-compete their competitors, and the way they do this is by trying to offer the best odds.
NHL picks and odds are most similarly compared to MLB picks and odds in that the puck line is set at +/- 1.5, as the run line is in baseball, and it’s the odds that change rather than the lines.
With this, it’s vital to shop the odds for your NHL best bets, as you can see a huge difference in potential payout from placing a wager at one sportsbook as opposed to another.
All of our NHL picks are accompanied by the best available odds and which online sportsbooks are offering them, but these odds are dynamic and can change.
