The Winnipeg Jets and the Columbus Blue Jackets meet in NHL action from the Nationwide Arena on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Winnipeg is listed as a -210 road favorite and Columbus is a +175 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.


For Winnipeg, Connor Hellebuyck is probable for this game after dealing with an illness while Columbus has Lane Pederson listed as questionable for this game and Yegor Chinakov is out until late February with an ankle injury.

Matchup History

Columbus’ 4-1 win over Winnipeg back on December 2nd, 2022, made it three wins in the last four meetings for the Blue Jackets in this head-to-head matchup.


Winnipeg is 13-6 in their last 19 games overall and 23-8 in their last 31 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 12-2 in their last 14 road games. Columbus is 1-6 in their last 7 home games and 21-52 in their last 73 games overall while the over is 13-3-1 in their last 17 Thursday games.


I’m backing the Jets here. The Blue Jackets have had some decent performances as of late, but the reality is that this is still the worst team in the league in Columbus and the Winnipeg Jets just have the edge across the board. There’s a possibility the Jets will have to roll with their backup goaltender here, but I’m not sure it matters. Give me the Jets -1.5 here.
