Toronto vs Carolina by QuidProQuo
Toronto is trying to get one of the top 3 picks in June, so they're blowing up their roster. They have 11 players in their line-up who spent time with their minor league affiliate this season. Toronto is 1-7 straight up in their last 8 home games and really struggling to beat anyone.
On the other hand, Carolina is one of the hottest teams in the league right now. They are #1 in the league in shots against, allowing just 26.5 per game. They also give up fewest power-plays in league, allowing 2.5 per game. Woeful Toronto line-up will have trouble scoring for sure.
Carolina is also 5-1 in their last six playing Toronto and they are fighting for the last wild card in Eastern Conference and can't lose games like this if they want to see first playoff since 2009. I expect them to cruise and win this game quite easily, so I'll take puck line instead of just moneyline. Take Carolina -1.5...
|Carolina -1.5||Pinnacle||2.86||8||3-1 LOST (-8 units)|
