Bruins vs. Maple Leafs Prediction: Goals Galore (11/5/2022)

Sweatpants Jesus

Two of the most explosive offenses in the league go head-to-head tonight in Toronto.

The Maple Leafs host the Boston Bruins in what should be a great Saturday evening Atlantic Division slugfest.

The 5-4-2 Leafs haven’t gotten off to the best start this season, and it doesn’t get any easier today as they welcome the best team in hockey right now, the 10-1 Bruins.

The Bruins have been absolutely flying, playing fantastic hockey and looking like the early Stanley Cup favorites.

Brad Marchand is back and is all over the ice, looking aggressive and ready to have another dominant campaign for the Bruins.

For the Leafs, their offense came to life last game at home against the Flyers, scoring 5 goals.

The Captain Jon Tavares has looked great to start the season, netting a hat trick against the Flyers and being very aggressive on the offensive end.

Do the Leafs have enough firepower to outscore the Bruins tonight?

Prediction

I am so tempted to take the Bruins at plus money here. They are the best team in hockey and the Leafs are so inconsistent.

That said, why are the Bruins at plus money? It seems too much like a trap and this game could go any way possible.

What I feel very sure of is there will be goals. Both of these offenses are electric and the Leafs at home can outscore anyone.

Give me the over for decent value and let’s just bet on goals!

Best Bet

Over 6.5 (-134)
