How does TLS differ from SSH from a strictly cryptographic perspective?

I know that there are many non-cryptographic differences between them, but I would like to know the cryptographic ones.

    $\begingroup$ cipher support. TLS supports a myriad of ciphers, SSH doesn't (but SSH does support Ed25519) $\endgroup$ – SEJPM Mar 1 '16 at 17:31

    $\begingroup$ One difference is that in SSH, the encryption ciphers and the MACs are negotiated separately; in TLS, ciphers and MACs are a "suite", and are coupled together by a single value. $\endgroup$ – Castaglia Apr 7 '16 at 4:22
