The Jets are 10-1 in their last 11 vs. Western Conference, 23-56 in their last 79 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-3 in their last 10 road games. The Coyotes are 1-7 in their last 8 home games, 17-39 in their last 56 games playing on 1 days rest and 24-56 in their last 80 overall. The Jets are 3-11-1 in the last 15 meetings in Arizona, 10-3 in the last 13 meetings and the home team is 16-5-1 in the last 22 meetings.
I almost want to take the Arizona Coyotes and the plus money at home simply due to the Jets hit or miss play as of late and the fact they're coming off a late game Friday night in Las Vegas. However, the Coyotes have found every way possible to lose games this season and have been rough on the defensive end. You almost have to pick the Jets here as a fade from the Coyotes more than anything else. So, give me Winnipeg on the road.
