Devils vs Maple Leafs Betting Prediction

New Jersey comes into this matchup after winning three of their last four games and they are trying to get back into the playoff race. The Devils have been very inconsistent this season, but they have defeated the Islanders and Jets in their last two wins. Toronto is pretty safely locked into the third seed in the Atlantic, but Tampa Bay is trying to chase them down. The Maple Leafs are 19-12-3 at home, while New Jersey is 18-15-2 on the road. Toronto hasn’t been great over the last couple of weeks and they continue to deal with injuries to Marner and Samsonov, but I still can’t trust the Devils. Take the Leafs to win this game by at least two goals.
