Maple Leafs vs. Avalanche Prediction

I’m on the Maple Leafs here. I just think there’s value here with the Leafs who are on fire right now and have the offensive firepower to go toe-to-toe with any team in the NHL. Colorado’s one of the best home teams in the league, but this should be a coin flip so I’m taking a shot on the Leafs and plus money here.
