Toronto Maple Leafs vs Tampa Bay Lightning Prediction

The Lightning deserve to be favored here given the recent roll that they’ve been on along with the fact that they’re at home. On the other hand, Toronto and the plus money is tempting given the talent that the Leafs possess, but you never really know which Toronto team is going to show up, either the team that gives up 6, or the team that wins games that most people would write them off in. Either way, I feel the best play here is the over. Both teams are capable of putting up at least 3-4 goals here, and I think we see a 4-3 or 5-3 game either way you slice it, so I’ll back the over in this game.
