The Winnipeg Jets and Toronto Maple Leafs meet Thursday in NHL action at the Scotiabank Arena.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after winning seven of their last nine games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 23.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Kyle Connor leads Winnipeg with 12 goals, Mark Scheifele has 23 assists and Nikolaj Ehlers has 79 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 77 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 54 goals on 612 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up 14 goals on 181 shots.
The Toronto Maple Leafs look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 31.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Auston Matthews leads Toronto with 20 goals, Mitchell Marner has 25 assists and John Tavares has 76 shots on goal. Defensively, the Toronto Maple Leafs are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 77.3 percent of their opponents power plays.

The Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 7-2 in their last 9 overall. The Maple Leafs are 12-4 in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest and 15-7 in their last 22 overall. The over is 4-0 in Jets last 4 overall. The under is 6-2 in Maple Leafs last 8 overall. The road team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The favorite is 17-8 in the last 25 meetings.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are a team I've backed a ton this season and have made a pretty good profit up to this point. However, the Winnipeg Jets are getting no respect with this line. Not only are the Jets playing the better hockey as of late, but they just beat the Maple Leafs on Tuesday as big underdogs. The Jets are also currently the most profitable team in the league based on $100 bets. It's hard not to back the Jets at this price.
