The Jets are 5-1 in their last 6 games as an underdog and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The Maple Leafs are 7-3 in their last 10 home games and 15-6 in their last 21 overall. The over is 5-2 in Jets last 7 overall. The under is 6-1 in Maple Leafs last 7 overall. The Jets are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Winnipeg Jets are worth a look in the underdog role given how solid they've been this season and the fact they've had success with these plus money prices. However, the Toronto Maple Leafs are not a team I'm looking to step in front of, as we've been on this team from the start and they're currently the third most profitable team in the sport. The Maple Leafs also controlled the game from start to finish when they played the Jets back in January. Give me the Maple Leafs, and I'll take the PL for max betting value.
