Game: Washington Capitals at Toronto Maple Leafs Feb 25 2012 7:05PM
Prediction: Toronto Maple Leafs
Grade: Loser (-155)
Reason: I'm playing on TORONTO. I successfully played against the Leafs on Thursday. That was against a talented and desperate San Jose club though. I felt the Leafs would be in over their heads. The Leafs will be taking on another quality team here. However, they've also got the schedule in their favor and tonight I look for them to be the team which is more "desperate." While the Leafs had last night off, the Caps are off a big win vs. Montreal. That's noteworthy as we find them at a money-burning 17-21 (-8.5) the past few seasons, when playing the second of back-to-back games. That includes a dismal 2-7 (-6.2) record their last nine in that situation. It should also be noted that last night's win came at home. The Caps have dropped four straight on the road. They're an awful 7-16 (-11.2) when playing a road game with an O/U line of 5.5. For the season, they've been outscored by a 3.2 to 2.4 margin on the road. As both teams are much better at home, its not surprising that the home team is 2-0 in this series this season. The Leafs lost at Washington but dominated the Caps by a score of 7-1 in the lone meeting here at Toronto. The Leafs, who have now dropped three straight, are 5-1 after having lost their previous three. Those losses were all against very tough (at Vancouver, vs. NJ and vs. SJ) opponents. Now, with the schedule in their favor, I expect them to bounce back an earn a very important two points. *9
