The Stars are 0-4 in their last 4 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 vs. Central. The Jets are 9-19 in their last 28 home games and 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The Stars are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Winnipeg.
Both of these teams have been hard to back recently and they're both struggling big time on the defensive end. The over is also a popular trend when the Jets and Stars meet on the ice. Give the lack of stops, I like the over between the Stars and Jets.
