The Jets are 5-0 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 3-9 in their last 12 overall. The Blues are 1-6 in their last 7 home games and 4-10 in their last 14 overall. The under is 49-21-5 in Jets last 75 overall. The over is 34-14-6 in Blues last 54 overall. The Jets are 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in St. Louis and 6-0 in the last 6 meetings. The road team is 16-7 in the last 23 meetings.
The Winnipeg Jets aren’t playing the greatest hockey, but they’re the better team here, obviously, and need to take advantage of games like this as they close in on a potential playoff spot. The St. Louis Blues have been going nowhere fast for a while now, and playing at home hasn’t helped much. The juice is reasonable. Give me the Jets on the road.
