Stanley Cup Playoffs Game 7 Betting Preview and Odds: Leafs at Bruins

Apr 24, 2018

Golden Knights have Vegas books sweating as Stanley Cup playoffs progress

The second round of the NHL playoffs is starting soon, and sportsbooks in Las Vegas are sweating the hometown Golden Knights and the ton of betting support they've received to win the Stanley Cup. We're inside the Mirage sportsbook talking about the adjusted Stanley Cup odds and NHL series prices with Jeff Stoneback, director of trading for MGM Resorts.

Toronto Maple Leafs at Boston Bruins (-170, 5.5)

Series tied 3-3.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have not won a postseason series since 2004 -- a streak they hope to snap when they visit the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night in a winner-take-all Game 7 of their Eastern Conference first-round set. After facing series deficits of 2-0 and 3-1, the Maple Leafs staved off elimination with a 4-3 win at Boston in Game 5 before prevailing 3-1 on Monday night.

Despite's Boston early dominance, the series is eerily reminiscent of the previous meeting between the teams in the playoffs in 2013, when Toronto won Games 5 and 6 only to become the first team in history to cough up a three-goal third-period lead in Game 7. “In both scenarios, we’ve been down 3-1 and come back,” Maple Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner said. "We’re not thinking specifically about (the past) with Boston. Our goal is to win the Stanley Cup and you have to beat everybody. The pressure is kind of off us. Just relax, treat it like another game, and ultimately you’ll be ready.” It appeared the Bruins would make it a short series after winning the opening two games by a combined 12-4, but they remain confident of advancing to a conference semifinal matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning. “If anybody would have told us at the start of the year that we’d be going into a Game 7 in the first round at home, we would have taken it," Boston forward Brad Marchand said. "Whatever has happened in the last six games doesn’t mean anything. ... It’s going to be a challenge. They’re a great team and they’ve played really well in this series. It’s gonna be fun and we’re looking forward to it.”

TV: 7:30 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network, CBC, Sportsnet, TVAS (Toronto), NESN (Boston)

BETTING STATS:

LINE HISTORY: The Bruins opened as -165 moneyline favorites for Game 7 and, as of Tuesday night, that number has been bet up to -170. 67 percent of moneyline wagers logged by Covers Consensus for this game are on the favorite Bruins. The total hit betting boards at 5.5 and has not moved. Check out the complete line history here.

GOALIE MATCHUP:

ABOUT THE MAPLE LEAFS: Frederik Andersen entered the series with a 10-1-0 record against Boston, but he was pierced early and often before turning in superb performances in the past two outings, making 42 saves in Game 5 and turning aside 32 of 33 shots in Game 6. “We’ve played with that (elimination) mentality for a bit now and we should be comfortable with it,” Andersen said. “But I don’t think there’s too much momentum going on in the playoffs like this." Mitch Marner is riding the momentum of a stellar series, delivering the tiebreaking score Monday to give him two goals and six assists during a five-game point streak.

ABOUT THE BRUINS: Boston's top line of Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak amassed a staggering 20 points in the first two games of the series, but the unit has been held off the scoresheet in each of the three losses while posting a minus-16 in those games. Maybe there is a little bit of (frustration), but you've got to go back to the drawing board and find the character we've shown all year," said Bergeron, who has been stifled since sitting out Game 4 due to injury. "Now it's about one game." Coach Bruce Cassidy dropped Rick Nash to the third line with Riley Nash and David Backes and replaced him with Danton Heinen.

MATCHUP CHART:

INJURY REPORT:

Leafs - C Leo Komarov (Questionable, Lower Body), LW Joffrey Lupul (I-R, Conditioning).

Bruins - D Brandon Carlo (Out For Season, Ankle), LW Anders Bjork (Out For Season, Shoulder).

TRENDS:

* Maple Leafs are 6-0 in their last 6 Wednesday games.
* Bruins are 21-6 in their last 27 home games.
* Over is 8-1-1 in Maple Leafs last 10 road games.
* Over is 10-2-4 in Bruins last 16 home games.
* Home team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

OVERTIME

1. Boston is 1-for-9 on the power play over the past four games after converting on 5 of 10 in the first two.

2. Maple Leafs F Leo Komarov is ready to return after sitting out four games but coach Mike Babcock will wait until Wednesday to make a decision on him.

3. Bruins G Tuukka Rask is 5-12 in elimination games.

PREDICTION: Bruins 4, Maple Leafs 2
