- The Toronto Maple Leafs continue their best-of-seven streak with the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight in Game 2 (7:30 p.m. ET)
- Online sports betting is now fully legal in the province of Ontario
- Below, check out the best Ontario sports betting sites to bet on the Leafs vs Lightning
Early April brought sweeping changes to the sports betting landscape in Ontario, with online betting becoming fully legalized and regulated. A number of industry-leading online sportsbooks have quickly entered the Ontario market, providing Ontario residents with an abundance of options to bet on their favorite teams.
Now, those same residents are hoping the 2022 NHL Playoffs will bring sweeping changes to the Maple Leafs’ playoff fortunes.
Already up 1-0 in their best-of-seven series with the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Leafs see their chances of winning the series at once and their first Stanley Cup since 1967 shorten considerably.
The table below shows the main Ontario sports betting options for betting on the Leafs.
Best Leafs vs Lightning Ontario Sports Betting Apps
Get the BetMGM Ontario app
The first option for Ontario sports bettors is BetMGM Ontario. To get the BetMGM app, click on the banner below. There is no code to enter during registration.
BetMGM is shortest on the Leafs’ money line tonight, scoring Toronto at -140 to win with the Lightning returning to +115. In turn, they are only +170 as -1.5 favorites on the puckline.
BetMGM, however, is the place to bet the least. Currently under 6.5 goals is listed at -120 with the most tied (+100). You won’t find a better price on the less in any of the Ontario sportsbooks.
Like most Ontario sportsbooks, BetMGM has Toronto at +700 in Stanley Cup odds. The Leafs became the second seed out of the East with +350. They’re just a stone’s throw from favored Florida Panthers (+300) who lost 1-0 to the Washington Capitals.
Download Caesars Sportsbook Ontario
Another great option for Ontario bettors is the Caesars Sportsbook app. To download the application, click on the banner below and use the code “SBDIMECAN» when registering.
Caesars Sportsbook currently has the Leafs at -135 and the Lightning money line at +115. The plus/minus is 6.5 (+105o/-125u). But they have the best price on the Leafs puckline. Toronto is currently +190 to win by multiple goals.
Caesars Sportsbook is also the place to bet on the Leafs’ Stanley Cup future right now. Toronto has +800 chances to win the Cup today. They are listed at +350 in NHL Eastern Conference odds, which matches most Ontario sports betting.
Get the ScoreBet Ontario app
Canada-based ScoreBet has quickly become one of the most popular sportsbooks in Ontario and is known for its elite ScoreBet app.
Click on the ScoreBet banner below to download the Scorebet app. You do not need to enter any code during the registration process.
ScoreBet doesn’t have the best odds available for the Leafs tonight. They list Toronto at -140 and Tampa at +115. But they have the second best price on the Leafs puckline: -1.5 (+185).
When it comes to their NHL futures markets, ScoreBet rates Toronto at +700 to win the Stanley Cup and the standard +350 to win the East.
A somewhat unique betting option on the ScoreBet at the moment is the Conn Smythe (Playoff MVP) futures odds. 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).
Get the BetRivers Ontario app for Leafs vs Lightning
BetRivers is a relative newcomer to the global betting scene, but remains a solid option for Ontario sports bettors looking to bet on the Leafs.
To start betting at BetRivers, click on the BetRivers banner below and register using the code “SBD XL”.
The BetRivers app has the Leafs at -129 to win tonight, which is the best odds you’ll find on any Ontario sportsbook right now. They have the plus/minus listed at the 6.5 standard (+105o/-115u).
In NHL futures, BetRivers has already moved the Leafs to Eastern Conference favorites at +340. It’s still competitively priced (Toronto is +350 at most Ontario sportsbooks), and it reflects the fact that they’ve dropped in Florida to +350.
The Leafs are listed at +750 in BetRivers Stanley Cup futures, which sits right in the middle of the betting options. Some Ontario sportsbooks have the Leafs at +700, while Caesars have them at +800.
