Ron’s Betting Tip: The one thing about teams playing in the State of Florida, stay focus on hockey and not the nice weather and trying to treat this game like a mini vacation, as the Vancouver Canucks found out in their last 2 games last week vs. Tampa Bay and Florida. The Leafs have lost 2 straight games and the bookmaker think they should be the team to beat this evening, as they’ve labeled them a -115 moneyline favorite. The Leafs are 11-4 SU as a road favorite averaging 4.27 GF and allowing 2.87 GA.
