The Winnipeg Jets are in better form at the moment, they're far more trustworthy defensively, and it feels like it's only a matter of time before they get the job done on their home ice. The New Jersey Devils have issues keeping the puck out of the net, and it's why this recent losing stretch has taken place. With pick em prices on both sides, it's hard not to side with the Jets at home here.
