Bet the house on the over.
Gustavsson’s last start came Nov. 8 against the Panthers when he was yanked in the second period after allowing three softies.
Since then, the Leafs have ridden rookie Ben Scrivens…and won just once in four tries.
Of course, for the total (probably 5.5) to go over, the Leafs might need to contribute on the score sheet as well. Offense has been a major problem for Toronto, which has just eight goals in its last six games.
The Caps will need to get back to their goal-scoring ways, too. Washington hasn’t scored more than three times in its last six games. Alex Ovechkin is goalless in his last three.
Come to think of it, maybe the over isn’t such a good play.
Good betting advice, eh?
