Leafs look to recover from disappointing loss to Sabers

Avalanche vs Maple Leafs selection and prediction

Currently, the Avalanche and Maple Leafs have Stanley Cup odds of less than +1000, two of just four teams in the NHL to find themselves such heavy betting favorites.

Nonetheless, it seems for Colorado that they rode the tails of last year’s championship. When they got into the action on Tuesday night, they weren’t even in the top 10 overall. With another key player in the infirmary, they’re going to have a tough time with the Maple Leafs.

Toronto hasn’t lost twice in a row since mid-January and has always found the strength to bounce back from defeat with a win, no matter the opposition. They’ve shown a habit of doing their best against top teams, so our prediction is that we’ll beat the Leafs on the money line against the defending champions at home.

Tip: Toronto Maple Leafs Moneyline (-150)
