4-Unit Play. #021. Take Toronto vs Detroit (Friday, February 1 at 7:05 p.m.)
As per your selection on Toronto, we like what the Leafs did over the break by acquiring Jake Muzzin. He will add several elements that were sorely needed to this Leafs D Core and we believe that will elevate the level of compete and gameplay throughout the entire team. Look, the Leafs open the ?second half? of the season at Detroit - a place where they are 5-1 in their last 6 visits and against a Redwings team they have beaten 9 out of the last 11 times. They are rightfully laying -170 but we feel that the line should be higher which is why we are biting on this line. Detroit is not a good hockey team and we don't expect them to show up tonight and beat one of the best teams in the league. The Wings are just 2-9 in their last 11 Friday games, 1-6 in their last 7 games following a win, 1-8 in their last 9 after allowing 2 goals or less in their previous game and 0-6 in their last 6 home games vs a team with a road winning % greater than .600. The Leafs score 5 tonight and win easily.
