Maple Leafs vs. Panthers Odds & Picks: MVP Matthews

The Leafs are rolling as they bumped their win streak up to five in a row last night with a 6-2 throttling of two-time defending champions in Tampa. Auston Matthews' quest for 60 goals kept on moving with a hat trick. Thanks to an explosive second period, the Leafs pulled away. No rest for the weary, though. Toronto has an even bigger matchup tonight against Eastern Conference favorites Florida. The Panthers come into this one on a four-game winning streak of their own.

Maple Leafs vs. Panthers Best Bets

Maple Leafs vs. Panthers Second Period Over 2.5 Goals (+110, Caesars)

Funny, I gave out this exact bet at +140 on Caesars last night for Leafs/Lightning and look at that value drop now. Still love it at +110, though. After last night's four-goal second period between Tampa and Toronto, that makes five second periods in a row for the Leafs that have gone over 2.5 goals and four in a row have seen 4+ goals scored. These two teams met a little over a week ago, combining for three in the second period. Panthers' second periods have gone over 2.5 goals in four of their last five games. The one that didn't was right on the doorstep with two goals scored.

Risk: 1 Unit to Win 1.10 Units on Caesars.

Auston Matthews First Goal Scorer (+900) & Last Goal Scorer (+900) (Both bets on BetMGM)

There's no way around it, Auston Matthews is on fire and is the best goal-scorer in hockey today. He can score any which way you want. He's such an elite goal scorer there's no value on a Matthews anytime goal scorer prop as it sits at -110. Let's get creative with ways to find value. At +900, either one of these is absolutely worth a flier. Betting one unit to win nine units that if Matthews' goal comes first or last tonight is a fun, low-risk high reward way to bet on the best goal scorer in the game. And who knows, maybe he'll be both first and last.

Risk: 1 Unit to Win 9 Units on BetMGM.
