Toronto Maple Leafs
Before the start of the new season we did not without reason say that Toronto is one of the favourites to win Stanley Cup. Reinforced by the great Tavares and several other high-quality players, Toronto has become the main candidate to win the first place in the Eastern Conference. If they continue with good games, they will probably enter in the fight with Tampa Bay Lightning, and judging by the current results, also with Columbus, which is playing great. So far, Maple Leafs have played 20 matches and recorded 14 wins and six defeats.
At the end of last month and at the beginning of this month they experienced two defeats in their hall and seemed to be in a crisis. But in the continuation of the championship, they improved their game and in the last six matches they made five wins and only one defeat. They only lost to Boston as guests, but after that defeat they have made two victories over Kings and Sharks, both outside of their hall. After three guest appearances, they are now returning home where they will meet with a very tough opponent which is also in great shape.
Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus is coming to this hosting after three wins over Dallas and Caroline as guests and with Florida in their hall. They have not lost in their last three guest appearances and are now in third place of the Eastern Conference when it comes to playing as guests, right behind Toronto and Lightning. Since Toronto is known to experience some unexpected defeats in their hall, Columbus definitely has good chances to continue their winning series. But they definitely will not have an easy job because Toronto, led by Tavares, is playing great this season.
Columbus has a good mutual ratio with Toronto, and they made three wins in the last four games, and they were defeated once after the extra time as guests. However, Toronto is a much more serious team this season, and this is best proved by their current placement on the table. In the last six matches they were defeated only once in their hall by New York Rangers. After that, they have made three victories and are welcoming this duel against Toronto with great confidence.
Toronto Maple Leafs vs Columbus Blue Jackets PICK
This will be a very exciting and uncertain game of two teams that are playing great lately. Toronto is playing much better as guest than in their own hall and this could be a problem. However, they have improved their form in the last two games, and since they have better individuals than Columbus, we give Toronto a little advantage in this duel.
