The Toronto Maple Leafs have struggled over the last week, but they bounced back on Thursday with a 5-3 win over the Jets, and they've now won five of the eight meetings against them this season. The Winnipeg Jets have been hit or miss as of late and they've had issues rising up in the underdog role. The Maple Leafs have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Jets overall and they've had some of their better performances on the road lately. Give me the Maple Leafs and the cheap price.
