Prediction and betting tips
The Toronto Maple Leafs are sixth in the Atlantic Division with only 12 points in 11 fixtures. They have lost four of the last five matches and won only the last match against the Flyers. However, the Maple Leafs have won over the Bruins in all matches in the 2022-23 NHL.
The Boston Bruins are best in the 2022-23 season with 20 points in 11 fixtures. They have a streak of seven fixtures. David Pastrnak is the third best scorer of the 2022-23 NHL and is in perfect form now, whereas Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews are not in their best form and scored only two and four, respectively.
The Bruins are much stronger right now and are able to beat the Maple Leafs, but I believe that we will see a draw in the regular time. A total of under 6.5 goals has played out in six of the last nine H2H matches and in nine of the last 10 matches with the Maple Leafs participating.
