The total has gone OVER in 4 of Los Angeles' last 6 games.
Los Angeles are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games.
Los Angeles are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Los Angeles' last 5 games when playing on the road against Toronto.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Toronto's last 6 games.
Toronto are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Toronto's last 6 games against Los Angeles.
The Kings have been struggling lately as they have lost 7 of their last 10 games and 5 of their last 7 games on the road. The Maple Leafs have been pretty good lately winning 4 of their last 5 games but they have struggled at home losing 5 of their last 7 games in Toronto. The Kings are allowing nearrly 4 goals per game so the Maple Leafs won't have any trouble to score on this game so I think the over is the play.
