Toronto Maple Leafs vs Boston Bruins (By: FairPlayBet)
Opening playoffs round. Best of 7 series. After first two played in Boston, the score is tied with one win each. It was good series so far in terms of betting. At the start, expected under I would say (4:1 Toronto win) and then in Game 2 again expected, the team who was down, won and tied on 1-1 (Boston 4:1). Those 1-1 scenarios are something to think about especially when the opponents are more or less balanced and especially when home team lose opening game. Cause, you would rarely see similar games.
That being said, I also think that now when the series moved to Toronto, it's time to we see for the first time one over the totals game.
This is by the way replay of opening round season ago. Back then Boston took the job done in 7.
Boston, known for good defense and Toronto whose main quality is in offense. I trust more to Toronto in this Game 3. If not to win, then at least to play this game on home ice on their way. IMO Toronto's offense is going to prevail.
Toronto's games are usually high scoring. The Leafs were 40-38-4 on the over/under in regular season. That's not too much in favor of over but note those were minimum 6, mainly 6.5 games and sometimes even totals offered at 7.
The Bruins were 34-44-4 in favor of under. Expected cause they are more defensively oriented team. In connection with that, their over under stats are not worrying.
In the mentioned last season mutual playoffs series, 5 of 7 games went over 5.5 goals.
Also this regular season mutual meetings went mainly over 5.5 (3 out of 4). Only once was under 5.5 and even back then 5 goals and only thanks no single goal in final period.
Plenty injury problems today for Boston, so maybe good sign if you like Toronto. But have in mind Boston for entire season was in similar situation but they still were able to finish as second best team in the conference.
