Maple Leafs-Flyers: Projected starting goalies

Frederik Andersen vs. Brian Elliott

Andersen is expected to make the start, putting his 6-2-2 record, 3.03 goals against average and .901 save percentage on the line. He has won each of his two road outings this season, allowing a total of three goals.

Elliott is expected to get the nod after Carter Hart won in overtime at New Jersey Friday night. He is 3-2-0 with a 3.10 GAA and .904 save percentage. Elliott looks to rebound after allowing six goals in his last showing in Pittsburgh Tuesday.

Prediction

Maple Leafs 5, Flyers 3

Moneyline (ML)

The MAPLE LEAFS (-134) have their All-Star caliber netminder in between the pipes against a Flyers side (+110) playing on the second end of a back-to-back set. Toronto has the advantage against a tired Philly team.

Puck Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

The MAPLE LEAFS (-1.5, +190) are worth a roll of the dice as you can nearly double your money if the offense puts up big numbers. To make matters better for the visitors, C John Tavares (finger) was able to practice Friday and is expected to return to the lineup, assuming his regular spot after a six-game absence. The Flyers (+1.5, -239) are too pricy on the puck line.

Over/Under (O/U)

The OVER 6.5 (+105) is a good play, especially at plus-money, as Johnny T is expected to return, Philly has a capable offense and Elliott has been very giving. All of those things are the perfect storm for an Over result.

The Oover is 6-0 in Toronto's past six against Metropolitan Division opponents, too, and a ridiculous 22-4 in its past 26 against Eastern Conference foes. In this series, the Oover is 13-6-3 in the past 22 meetings.
