The Toronto Maple Leafs look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 31.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Auston Matthews leads Toronto with 21 goals, Mitchell Marner has 26 assists and John Tavares has 76 shots on goal.

The Jets are 2-6 in their last 8 Saturday games and 7-3 in their last 10 overall. The Maple Leafs are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 16-7 in their last 23 overall. The over is 5-0 in Jets last 5 overall. The under is 16-7-1 in Maple Leafs last 24 home games. The Jets are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 18-8 in the last 26 meetings.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are a team we've backed a ton this season and it's hard to pass them up at home. However, the Winnipeg Jets have played great hockey in their own right, they've cashed left and right in the underdog role and they've competed with the Maple Leafs through three meetings this season. The Maple Leafs should be favored and probably win this game if they play to their ability, but this is a lot of plus money to turn down with a quality team. I'm siding with the Jets here.
