Puck Line Punisher - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #2 Wednesday 10* Top Play Toronto Maple Leafs -1.5 goals -110 vs Ottawa Senators @ 7:05 ET - Yes it was only preseason but a couple interesting facts from that. The Senators beat the Maple Leafs in both preseason meetings but that was early on. What I like about Toronto here in terms of momentum here is they finished the preseason very strong with 4 straight wins. Also, as a host, their only loss was to Ottawa as the Leafs then won 3 straight as a host and the victories came by a combined score of 11-0. The Sens are now coached by DJ Smith and he was an assistant coach under Toronto's head coach Mike Babcock. Rest assured the veteran coach doesn't want to lose the home opener to his understudy and the Maple Leafs have plenty of motivation here as the Senators are known for giving them problems. Ottawa is projected to be the worst team in the NHL this season while Toronto is a legitimate Stanley Cup contender. I do feel the Sens will be scrappy and will eventually be a little better than most are projecting. However, that is not going to happen early in the season as, with all the changes, Ottawa is going to suffer some breakdowns on defense and some poor positioning of players in certain situations too. This is going to lead to odd man rushes for the opponent and, of course, the Maple Leafs are absolutely stacked with high-skilled forwards. This is why the Leafs opened up as 3 to 1 favorites on the money line in this game. Where the value is, in my opinion, is with the puck line available at a pick'em price as a home rout ensues and the Maple Leafs win this game by 2 or more goals. TORONTO puck line -1.5 goals
