LINE MOVEMENT

Toronto opened as a -130 favorite before the line flipped in the Jets' direction, while the total has gone up after opening at 6 goals. Winnipeg can be bet between -115 and -105, while the Maple Leafs range from -105 to -110. The total has bumped to 6.5 everywhere.

INJURY TO WATCH

Winnipeg defenseman Jacob Trouba (brain injury) is questionable. Defenseman Toby Enstrom (lower body) is out indefinitely. Defenseman Dmitry Kulikov (back) is out until mid-April. Left winger Matt Hendricks (lower body) is out until mid-May. Goalie Steve Mason (knee) is out until early April. For Toronto, center Leo Komarov (lower body) is questionable. Center Joffrey Lupul (conditioning) remains on long-term injured reserve.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Maple Leafs won the first meeting by a count of 7-2 in Winnipeg all the way back on Oct. 4, well before anyone truly knew how good Winnipeg would be this season. The Jets probably still remember that contest considering its blowout nature. With Winnipeg having had its six-game win streak ended with a 6-2 loss at the Blackhawks its last game, expect it to get back on the right track here. Especially considering Toronto is on the second leg of a back-to-back.
