The Winnipeg Jets are on the end of a back to back, but they're still clearly the better team in this contest. The Ottawa Senators are a team we've faded the last couple of years and it's paid off nicely. The Senators are a team I don't trust much based on their track record the last couple of years, and they've had no recent success against the Jets. We're not being asked to lay crazy juice. I have to side with the Jets on the road.
