The Winnipeg Jets and the New York Rangers meet in NHL action from Madison Square Garden on Monday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
New York is listed as a -160 home favorite while Winnipeg is listed as a +140 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 5.5 goals.
For Winnipeg, David Gustafsson is still out indefinitely with an upper body injury. New York comes into this game with a clean injury report.
Winnipeg’s 4-1 win over the Rangers back on October 14th, 2022, snapped New York’s four-game win streak in this head-to-head matchup.
Winnipeg is 9-25 in their last 34 games against the Metropolitan division and 2-5 in their last 7 road games while the under is 20-5-1 in their last 26 games against the Eastern Conference. New York is 12-1 in their last 13 games in the Western Conference and 5-0 in their last 5 home games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall.
I’m backing the Rangers here. Winnipeg has been a solid team to back as of late, but they’ve struggled to score lately, putting just three goals on the board in the first two games of this road trip. New York may have had their win streak snapped, but they’re still one of the league’s hottest teams and have really picked up their play at home as of late. I’ll take the Rangers in this one.
