The Jets are 8-3 in their last 11 vs. a team with a losing record and 3-7 in their last 10 Saturday games. The Flames are 0-5 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The over is 9-2-1 in Jets last 12 overall. The under is 7-3 in Flames last 10 Saturday games. The Jets are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Calgary. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I'm not sure what the Winnipeg Jets have done to the oddsmakers, but they continue to disrespect them with these lines, and all they've done is win games and make money. In fact, the Jets are currently the second most profitable team in the sport this season, as only the Capitals have earned more money for bettors. Also, the Jets have won four of the six meetings this season against the Flames, which includes a win last night where they were in control from the start. I'll keep taking these plus money prices with the Jets.
