All seven Canadian NHL teams are in action today, with one game featuring two teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets playing against each other. The Maple Leafs are the underdogs for this matchup.
In their last game, the Maple Leafs and the Jets had a tight battle, with both teams struggling to score. The game ended in a surprising shutout victory for the Maple Leafs, with Auston Matthews scoring the winning goal in overtime.
Both teams will be looking to carry their defensive efforts from the last game into tonight’s matchup, while also focusing on adding their own firepower to the mix.
The projected lineups for both teams have been released, with Toronto’s Bobby McMann and Calle Jarnkrok suffering from injuries and Winnipeg’s Gabriel Vilardi and Josh Morrissey being game-time decisions.
As for betting trends, the Maple Leafs have won their last four games against the Jets, and according to Scores and Odds, the Jets are currently carrying approximately 83% of the bets and 95% of the money among bets that they can track.
Player prop trends indicate that Nikolaj Ehlers has been the standout player for the Jets, while Auston Matthews has been in great form for the Maple Leafs. However, John Tavares’ lack of form is starting to become concerning.
In terms of wagers to consider, the Jets are favored on both the moneyline and puck line, especially if Vilardi and Morrissey play. Additionally, betting on Kyle Connor to score a goal and considering a same-game parlay with a moneyline win, a Connor goal, and a Nik Ehlers assist are also recommended.
Overall, the stage is set for an exciting matchup between the Maple Leafs and the Jets, with both teams looking to gain an edge in tonight’s game.
