The San Jose Sharks and the Winnipeg Jets meet in NHL action from the Canada Life Arena on Monday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Winnipeg is listed as a -225 home favorite and San Jose is a +180 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.
For San Jose, Radim Simek is questionable for this game while Jonah Gadjovich is out indefinitely. For Winnipeg, Pierre-Luc Dubois is questionable for this game and Mason Appleton is out indefinitely with an upper body injury and Cole Perfetti remains out until late April.
Winnipeg’s 4-1 win over the Sharks back on November 11th, 2021, snapped San Jose’s three-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.
San Jose is 21-59 in their last 80 games overall and 15-36 in their last 51 road games while the over is 11-2 in their last 13 games following a loss by 3 or more goals. Winnipeg is 1-5 in their last 6 games overall and 25-11 in their last 36 home games while the under is 16-5 in their last 21 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.
I’m backing the Jets here. Not a game I’m rushing to bet, but the Jets for the most part have been lights out on home ice and this feels like a great spot for them to break out of their recent cold spell. San Jose does play better on the road, but this is still a Sharks team that’s in the basement of the NHL and the Jets are just on another level right now. Give me Winnipeg.
