Maple Leafs at Jets picks and predictions


Jets 3, Maple Leafs 2


The JETS (-130) are a solid play for the bounce back, especially with Hellebuyck expected to be back in the crease.

Winnipeg was on the short end of a 4-1 score in Boston in Hellebuyck’s most recent start, but it is 13-2-2 in his past 17 outings.

The Maple Leafs (+105) are 6-2-2 in the past 10 games on the road, so this will be anything but easy for the home side. Expect another low-scoring defensive battle in the ‘Peg.

Puck line/Against the spread

The Maple Leafs +1.5 (-225) will set you back more than 2 times your potential return, and that’s way too much risk and not enough reward, if you need a little bit of insurance and can’t bring yourself to play Toronto straight up.



The UNDER 6 (-105) is worth a look after the teams played a scoreless regulation in the front end of the back-to-back.

The Under has hit in 4 of the past 6 games for the Maple Leafs, including each of the past 3 starts by Samsonov.

The total has also gone low at a 6-0-1 clip in the previous 7 games for the Jets, while cashing at a 6-1-3 pace in the past 10 starts by Hellebuyck.
