Like most Ontario sportsbooks, BetMGM has Toronto at +700 in the Stanley Cup odds. The Leafs have become the second-favorite to advance out of the East at +350. They are only a stone’s throw behind the favored Florida Panthers (+300) who are down 1-0 to the Washington Capitals.

ScoreBet doesn’t have the best moneyline odds available for the Leafs tonight. They list Toronto at -140 and Tampa at +115. But they do have the second-best price on the Leafs’ puckline: -1.5 (+185).
In terms of their NHL futures markets, ScoreBet lists Toronto at +700 to win the Stanley Cup and the standard +350 to win the East.
One somewhat unique betting option at the ScoreBet at the moment is Conn Smythe futures odds (playoff MVP). Auston Matthews is currently the co-favorite with Colorado’s Nathan MacKinnon at +1000.
Other Leafs on the board include Mitch Marner (+2800), Jack Campbell (+2800), John Tavares (+6000), Nazem Kadri (+6000), and William Nylander (+6000).

BetRivers is a relative newcomer on the betting scene globally, but is still a solid option for Ontario sports bettors looking to wager on the Leafs.
To start betting at BetRivers, click on the BetRivers banner below and register using code “SBDXL” (same code as Bet365, above).
BetRivers has the Leafs at a -129 to win tonight, which is the best odds you will find at any Ontario sports betting site at the moment. They have the over/under listed at the standard 6.5 (+105o/-115u).
In the NHL futures, BetRivers has actually moved the Leafs to Eastern Conference favorites already at +340. That’s still a competitive price (Toronto is +350 at most Ontario sportsbooks), and is a reflection of the fact that they have dropped Florida to +350.
The Leafs are listed at +750 in the BetRivers Stanley Cup futures, which is right in the middle of the betting options. Some Ontario sportsbooks have the Leafs at +700, while Caesars has them at +800.
