Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Boston Bruins Game 5: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Read the latest betting picks, predictions, odds and player props for Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Boston Bruins Game 5, courtesy of our friends at Daily Faceoff.

The Bruins are on the verge of advancing to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and again, it's at the expense of the Maple Leafs.

Boston can make it seven-straight series wins over Toronto with a win Tuesday, a streak that dates back to the 1969 postseason.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are in must win territory to keep their season alive as the Boston Bruins have a 3-1 lead in the series.

Will the Maple Leafs be able to respond after a poor performance in Game 4? Will Auston Matthews be in the lineup? Will Mitch Marner be able to step up his game with all the pressure in the hockey world on his shoulders?

There are so many questions surrounding this Maple Leafs team. It makes you wonder how they’re going to be able to win in a hostile Boston environment.

Toronto has had a difficult time scoring goals in the playoffs over the last few years. They’ve scored two or fewer goals in 17 of their last 23 games. This is magnified by the lack of production from their big guns in the playoffs. Auston Matthews, William Nylander, Mitch Marner, and John Tavares are all below a point per game in the playoffs during their Toronto tenures.

The Leafs go as the core four goes. If they’re on their game and playing well, Toronto will have success. If they aren’t going, the teams craters.

I can’t see this group winning in game 5 at the TD Garden. Matthews is ill. Nylander has migraines. Marner is not at his best. And Tavares has had little to no impact in any of the first four games.

I’m taking the Boston Bruins to win Game 5 and close out the series.
