BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Winnipeg's last 8 games.

Winnipeg are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games.

Winnipeg are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against Edmonton.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Winnipeg's last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Edmonton's last 8 games.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Edmonton's last 5 games at home.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Edmonton's last 6 games when playing at home against Winnipeg.

 

Prediction

The Oilers have been good lately and just scored 7 goals in their last game against the Kraken but they have struggled at home with a 9-9-1 record. The Jets continue to play great defensively allowing 2.6 goals per game and are 5-2 in their last 7 games against the Jets. This should be a close game and with both teams playing good defense in their last games I think the under is the play.

PICK: Under 6.5 (+110)
