Matchup History

Winnipeg’s 4-2 win back on January 6th, 2023, made it seven straight meetings between these two teams without back-to-back winners.


Winnipeg is 4-0 in their last 4 games played on no rest and 2-7 in their last 9 games overall while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Tampa Bay is 0-6 in their last 6 games played on no rest and 0-5 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games overall.


I’m backing the Lightning here. I was initially leaning towards the Jets and maybe the over, but the Lightning woke up against Chicago and got a nice confidence boost and now get the Jets on the back-to-back with their backup in net here with Andrei Vasilevskiy rested and ready to go. I’d like the price to be a bit less of course, but I still think Tampa Bay is the play here.
