Bruins vs Maple Leafs Prediction

For a moneyline bet, I’m backing the Maple Leafs to secure a victory over the Bruins at home. With the moneyline currently set at -117, I’m locking in my bet on the Maple Leafs straight-up.

For my recommended choice in the puck line, I’m leaning towards the Bruins to cover. Even if the Maple Leafs secure a straight-up win, this game is expected to be tightly contested, and the Bruins should cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
