The Jets are 1-7 in their last 8 road games and 15-43 in their last 58 games playing on 0 days rest. The Blackhawks are 1-4 in their last 5 vs. Central and 37-15 in their last 52 Sunday games. The Jets are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Chicago and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Blackhawks are in a bit of a funk as of late, the road team has won seven of the last eight meetings between these two teams and the Jets have won their last four in Chicago. I like the plus money here.
