The Winnipeg Jets are listed as -120 road favorites while Nashville is tabbed as a +100 home underdog with the total for this game set at 5.5 goals.
For Winnipeg, Logan Stanley is out until Early February with a lower body injury while David Gustafsson is out indefinitely with an upper body injury. For Nashville, Nino Niederreiter is questionable for this game with a leg injury.
Winnipeg’s 2-1 OT win back on December 15th in the first meeting this season, give the Jets back-to-back wins in this head-to-head matchup.
Winnipeg is 17-5 in their last 22 division games and 35-17 in their last 52 games overall while the under is 8-1 in their last 9 games against the Western Conference. Nashville is 5-16 in their last 21 division games and 4-1 in their last 5 home games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win.
I’m sticking with Winnipeg here. The Jets have just played extremely well within the division, and side-by-side, I simply trust the Jets more than I do Nashville, especially between the pipes. I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I’ve backed the Preds this season and I doubt it’s going to start now. Give me Winnipeg here.
