The well-rested Philadelphia Flyers host the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7:30pm ET at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday.
Toronto is listed as -130 road favorites in the Leafs vs Flyers odds.
After a slow start, the Leafs were riding a five-game winning streak that included three consecutive wins against some of the NHL’s heavyweights, but that came to an end with a disappointing 5-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Monday.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia should be well rested as they haven’t played since Saturday.
Let’s take a look at the Leafs vs Flyers odds and lines while also peaking at SBD’s NHL best bet for this Eastern Conference matchup.
Maple Leafs vs Flyers Odds
|Game Time||Team||Puck Line||Total||Moneyline|
|7:30pm ET||Toronto Maple Leafs||-1.5 (+180)||O 6 (-120)||-130|
|November 10th, 2021||Philadelphia Flyers||+1.5 (-220)||U 6 (+100)||+110|
Odds as of November 9th at DraftKings
The Leafs may be heading into this one a little banged up as a couple of forwards missed practice yesterday, including Captain John Tavares, who has been playing lights out lately with six goals and 10 points in his last six games.

If Tavares can’t go, Toronto will look to last year’s goal leader, Auston Matthews to lead the offence. The Leafs’ sniper missed the start of the season after offseason wrist surgery and got off to a slow start when he returned, but has looked more like himself of late, with two multi-goal games in the last four. He opened as the betting favorite in the Rocket Richard odds, but now has slipped to third at +525.
Flyers Goalies Standing Out
The Flyers have done a pretty good job keeping Matthews quiet over the years, as he’s scored just three goals in 10 career games against Philly. Last game it was Martin Jones keeping another Rocket Richard candidate, Alex Ovechkin quiet as the Flyers held the explosive Capitals’ offense to one goal in a 2-1 win.
Carter Hart is likely to get the task of keeping Matthews at bay in this one. He’s had a great start to this month with a .954 save percentage in his two starts in November.

The Leafs goaltending situation is less than desirable right now. Their offseason signing Petr Mrazek is out with a groin injury and Jack Campbell has been carrying the load with no trustworthy number 3 goalie. Although Campbell has had a sensational start to this campaign, the workload may be catching up to him.
Goalies Getting Too Much Action?

Campbell was heroic leading the Leafs to three wins last week, so much so that he was recognized as one of the best players of the week by the NHL.

On Monday against his former team though, he allowed four goals in a 5-1 loss. We’ll see how he bounces back, but some rest soon would likely do him some good. The Flyers duo of Hart and Jones are both performing very well, splitting their goaltending duties with the team goals against and save percentage both top-5 in the league.
Maple Leafs vs Flyers Pick & Prediction
This should be a really competitive contest and although these teams have had some explosive affairs against one another, I think this will be a tight, low-scoring matchup.
Let’s take a look at a few trends and interesting numbers heading into this one:
- Home Team is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings between these two
- Maple Leafs are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Philadelphia
- Flyers are 7-1 in their last 8 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game
Other than the Leafs being a wild 9-1 in their last 10 Wednesday night games, all the signs point to a Flyers victory in this one, so go with the home underdogs on the moneyline.
Pick: Flyers ML (+110)
