Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs visit his home state team, the Arizona Coyotes. Both teams come in tonight on opposite ends of streaks. Will they continue, or will both be broken tonight?
The other best bet for tonight is in a match-up between the Buffalo Sabres and Montreal Canadiens. 
Tonight’s expected goaltender match-ups for our highlighted games:
The Maple Leafs’ Ilya Samsonov (12-4-6) vs. the Coyotes’ Karel Vejmelka (6-14-2).
The Sabres’ Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen (14-14-2) vs. The Canadiens’ Sam Montembeault (12-9-4). 

Auston Matthews goal (-125)

Your $10.00 bet would return $18.00.
Matthews can’t stop scoring since the All-Star break, scoring in five of seven games, totalling nine goals. Against the Coyotes, Matthews has two goals in his last four games. He currently sits at 49 goals, and how poetic would it be for Matthews to get 50 goals in his home state? 
The Coyotes have been struggling with their standout goaltender, Connor Ingram, shelved with an undisclosed injury. Vejmelka has struggled in relief allowing 4.5 goals against and a .850 save percentage. 

Arizona Coyotes money line (+150)

Your $5.00 bet would return $12.50.
Yup, this one is terrifying with how these teams are playing as of late. The Maple Leafs are on a four-game winning streak, while the Coyotes have lost 10 in a row. But with how these teams have matched up against each other over the last two seasons, these streaks may come to an end tonight. 
While the Coyotes have been at the bottom of the league standings throughout the last two seasons, they’ve swept the season series the last two seasons against the Maple Leafs — outscoring them by an average score of 4.3 to 2.5 over those four games. 
While yes, Vejmelka has struggled lately, he historically shines against the Maple Leafs with a 3-0 record and a .934 save percentage. 

JJ Peterka over 2.5 shots on goal (-163)

Your $15.00 bet would return $24.23.
JJ Peterka has covered this line in eight straight games, averaging 4.3 shots on 5.9 shot attempts per game. On the road this season, Peterka is clearing at a 58% clip, averaging 2.9 shots on 5.0 shot attempts. 
Against the Canadiens, Peterka has cleared in three straight games, averaging 4.3 shots on 6.7 shot attempts. Montreal is allowing 33.4 shots over their last 10 games — this number jumps to 35.6 in their previous 10 in the Bell Centre. 
If you’re feeling spicy, throwing $5.00 on him to score a goal at +187 odds to return $14.37 isn’t a bad bet.
