Chicago Blackhawks vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
NHL Over-Under Pick: Under 6.5 goals -110 odds (October 9th 2017)

Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach 2nd of 2 NHL Free Picks Monday goes in EVENING action: UNDER 6.5 goals in Toronto Maple Leafs vs Chicago Blackhawks @ 7:05 ET – With each of these hockey clubs having scored 15 goals in their first two games, there had to be an over-adjustment by the odds makers here. That is precisely what has happened as this total is a 6.5 when the fact is that Chicago’s defense has been excellent and plus goalie Corey Crawford has allowed just 1 goal in each of the two games. As for the Maple Leafs, they let a 5-1 lead get away versus the Rangers Saturday but I believe they’ve learned their lesson from that and let’s not forget that Toronto allowed just 2 goals in their season opening win at Winnipeg Wednesday.

I feel strongly that both teams, while happy to be 2-0 on the season, would be content to play a tight defensive-minded match on Monday evening and that is what we should see here. The last time these teams met it was a 2-1 win for the Blackhawks here at the Air Canada Centre in March. Even if this game doubles that (a 4-2 type game) we still get a win with the under and Frederik Anderson is a solid goalie who had a .918 save percentage last season and has that same impressive .918 mark in his career! Free Pick on UNDER the total in Toronto in EVENING action Monday. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach. Don’t miss out on more NHL picks from Scott at
