Point Spread: 1.50 | -210.00 Montreal (Away)
The experts have the Leafs projected as favorites to win the North, but the Habs are a close second. Montreal has had the better of recent meetings, winning four straight. Close games have been the trend, with five of the last seven head to head meetings going to overtime. The Habs would be 6-1 on the puckline in those games. Montreal had a fantastic off-season, and they come into the 2021 season in excellent shape with two elite goaltenders in Carey Price and Jake Allen. I'll take the dog here.
