The New Jersey Devils and the Winnipeg Jets meet in NHL action from the Canada Life Arena on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
New Jersey is a -120 road favorite while Winnipeg is a +100 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.
New Jersey’s 4-2 win back on February 19th, 2023, was just their 2nd win in the last 11 meetings between these two teams in this head-to-head matchup.
New Jersey is 6-0 in their last 6 games played on no rest and 26-10 in their last 36 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the Western Conference. Winnipeg is 2-6 in their last 8 games following a win and 16-35 in their last 51 games against the Metropolitan division while the under is 36-12-3 in their last 51 games overall.
I’m backing the Devils here. The Devils have just been rock solid on the road all season long and I don’t expect that to change here. The Jets could definitely use the win for sure, but they haven’t been able to step it up as of late when they’ve needed to in the thick of the playoff hunt and I don’t see them all of a sudden figuring it out here. Give me the Devils.
