Winnipeg is 7-2 in their last 9 games as a road favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 Monday games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record. Vancouver is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 home games while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games as an underdog. Winnipeg is 17-4 in the last 21 meetings between these two teams and 6-0 in the last 6 meetings between the two teams in Vancouver.
I think you could make a case for either side here as we keep getting good value with Winnipeg, but Vancouver’s playing their best hockey of the season. Instead, I’m going to side with the over here as I’m expecting a back and forth fast-paced matchup and I think we could finish at at least 7 goals if not more here. Give me the over.
