The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home, and they’re better than what they’ve shown up to this point. However, we’re getting plus money with the Vegas Golden Knights, and I don’t care who they’re playing until they cool off, I’m going to back them as long as the price is reasonable. Vegas has made an early case as the best team in the league. Give me the plus money.
