The over is 8-1-1 in Panthers last 10 overall. The over is 5-2 in Jets last 7 overall. The Panthers are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in Winnipeg. The favorite is 45-22 in the last 67 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

As Ive said a lot over these last few weeks, the Florida Panthers just don’t have the same pep in their step they had last year, and they’re not stringing together wins. The Winnipeg Jets may not be as talented as the Panthers, but they’re playing the better hockey right now, and they’ve been excellent on their home ice. The value is with the Jets and the slightly cheaper price. I’ll take it.
