Odds

Toronto Maple Leafs (-135) vs. Vancouver Canucks (+122)

The Toronto Maple Leafs will close out a three-game Canadian Western road trip on Saturday when they face the Vancouver Canucks on the road. The Maple Leafs, who have won seven of their last 10 games, head to British Columbia as enticing -135 favorites. The head-to-head matchup over the last three meetings has gone to the Maple Leafs, who have won twice during that span. Toronto is also 5-1 against the spread in its last six road games — an impressive stat that will sway many bettors to back the Buds on Saturday night. BetOnline has also set the projected goals total at 6. Expect a high-scoring affair when the Leafs and Canucks clash.

Pick: Toronto Maple Leafs (-135 and the over) BetOnline

Montreal Canadiens (-160) vs. Detroit Red Wings (+144)

Carey Price’s return to the Montreal Canadiens couldn’t have come at a better time. The Habs have won four straight games since the Vezina Trophy winner returned from a nagging knee injury. Montreal will look to keep the streak going when it hosts the Detroit Red Wings for the second game in three nights between the Original Six rivals. The Canadiens enter as the -160 favorites at home, where they’ve posted a respectable 7-5-2 record. Saturday’s projected goals total is set at 5½, but don’t expect this one to be a highly offensive matchup. Take the Habs and the under.

Pick: Montreal Canadiens (-160 and the under) BetOnline

Dallas Stars (-123) vs. Chicago Blackhawks (+111)

Two teams heading in opposite directions will meet on Saturday when the red-hot Dallas Stars face the slumping Chicago Blackhawks. The Stars, who have won three straight games and six of their last 10, enter Saturday’s contest as -123 favorites at American Airlines Arena, where the club has lost just two games all season. However, it’s the Blackhawks that’ve owned the head-to-head matchup over the last 10, winning six of those contests during that stretch. The Hawks have improved since opening the season slow and at +111, they’re well worth the risk — if you want to even call it that. Take the under on the 6-goal total.

Pick: Chicago Blackhawks (+111 and the under) BetOnline

Calgary Flames (-139) vs. Edmonton Oilers (+126)

The Battle of Alberta will take center stage on Saturday when the Calgary Flames host the struggling Edmonton Oilers at the Scotiabank Saddledome. The Flames, who have won six of their last 10 games, are -139 favorites on home ice, while the Oilers, who are coming off a devastating defeat, are still intriguing +126 underdogs. Both the Oilers and Flames are more than capable of opening up the game so take the over on the projected goals total of 6. The Oilers will prevail and get back into the win column.

Pick: Edmonton Oilers (+126 and the over) BetOnline
