Toronto Maple Leafs vs Vegas Golden Knights prediction

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a super talented team I've been on a lot this season, and I'd love to pull the trigger with them any time they're underdogs, but I need more bang for my buck here. The Vegas Golden Knights are due for a bounce back performance after a rough week, and they're at home, where they're 19-8-2 on the year. As great as the Maple Leafs and plus money is, Vegas at home with a cheap price probably packs more betting value. In what should be a fun must watch game between two contenders, give me Vegas at home.
