Maple Leafs at Devils picks and predictions


Maple Leafs 3, Devils 1



Toronto has not lost back-to-back games since getting routed as a -230 home favorite 5-1 vs. the Seattle Kraken Jan. 5. The Maple Leafs are 7-1 in their last 8 games after a loss by 3 or more goals and should be able to bounce back vs. a Devils team that was lucky to escape Arizona with a win after blowing a 2-goal 3rd-period lead.

Puck line/Against the spread


The Maple Leafs +1.5 (-220) should hit, but there is no need to risk more than twice your potential profit on the puck line when Toronto should win straight up. Bet the moneyline and/or total instead.


BET UNDER 6.5 (-110).

These teams have played low-scoring games vs. each other recently with the Under hitting in each of the last 3 meetings.

The Under is 4-0-1 in Toronto’s last 5 games and Samsonov should be able to bounce back after allowing 5 goals at the Edmonton Oilers in his most recent start. When Samsonov allowed 5 goals vs. the Boston Bruins Feb. 1, the Maple Leafs netminder followed up that performance with a shutout at the Columbus Blue Jackets Feb. 10.
