Jets vs Maple Leafs Betting Prediction

Winnipeg is coming off of a loss to Boston in their last game, but they have been one of the best defensive teams in the NHL this season. The Jets have allowed two goals or fewer in 14 of their last 15 games, but they will be tested against a good Toronto offense here. The Maple Leafs have been up and down this season and they are not very good at home, but they do have some momentum after winning two of their last three games. Winnipeg was due for some regression and we saw that against Boston, but I think we see that continue here. The Maple Leafs are another very strong offensive team and I think they pick up the win at home.
