2015-2016 Toronto Maple Leafs Betting
The Leafs traded right wing Phil Kessel, along with defenseman Tim Erixon, minor league center Tyler Biggs and a second-round draft choice in 2016, to the Pittsburgh Penguins for prospect Kasperi Kapanen, forward Nick Spaling, defenseman Scott Harrington, and first and third round picks in the 2016 draft. Toronto is hoping that some of their newcomers like Mark Arcobello, PA Parenteau and Shawn Matthias can give them some scoring until their young talent is ready.
The Maple Leafs were actually not a bad team at home last season as they were 22-19 on home ice. It was on the road where they were simply awful as they won a total of 8 games all season on the road. It has been a long time since a team was that hopeless on the road. Not only could you bet against the Leafs in their road games but you could also bet their games under on the road with 24 games going under and just 15 going over with 2 pushes. It could be more of the same in 2015-2016 as this team is going to struggle to score goals.
Toronto Maple Leafs Picks
It is going to take some time for the Leafs to be a playoff contender in the East even with Babcock as their head coach. The way to bet the Leafs this season should be to take their games under as they should be better on defense with Babcock as their head coach and they already have a top goaltender in Bernier.
