Preview

The Winnipeg Jets continue on the road and will visit the Vancouver Canucks at the Rogers Arena on Friday night. These teams met three times last season and the Canucks led 2-1 with the 2 wins at home.

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets have won 3 of their first 5 games of the season and are 2-0 at home ranking 4th in the Atlantic division. Winnipeg won their 3rd straight game after beating the Seattle Kraken 5-4 at home.  Jason Dickinson and Tyler Johnson scored 13 seconds apart late in the third period. Max Domi and Jujhar Khaira also scored.

Max Domi leads the Jets with 3 goals while Tyler Johnson has 5 points and 3 assists for Winnipeg.

In their last 10 games the Jets are 5-5, averaging 2.6 goals, 4.4 assists, three penalties and 7.4 penalty minutes while giving up 3 goals per game with an .886 save percentage.

Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks have lost 4 of their last 6 games and are 2-3-1 at home so far ranking 7th in the Pacific. They're coming from a tough game against the Buffalo Sabres on the road where they came up with the victory 5-4. Bo Horvat had a goal and two assists. The Canucks also got goals from Dakota Joshua, Ethan Bear, Elias Pettersson and J.T. Miller in closing a five-game road trip. Pettersson added an assist, and backup goalie Spencer Martin made 28 saves.

Bo Horvat has scored 14 goals with 6 assists  and 20 points for the Canucks. Quinn Hughes leads the team with 14 assists.

In their last 10 games the Canucks are 5-5, averaging 4 goals, 4.9 assists, 6.5 penalties and 17.6 penalty minutes while giving up 3.96 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Winnipeg are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.

Winnipeg are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against Vancouver.

Winnipeg are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

Winnipeg are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Vancouver.

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

Vancouver are 5-13 SU in their last 18 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Vancouver's last 5 games against Winnipeg.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Vancouver's last 13 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Jets have been playing good lately as they have won 5 of their last 6 games but they have struggled on the road losing 5 of their last 7 games away and are 1-7 last 8 games playing in Vancouver. The Canucks offense exploded in the last game vs Buffalo scoring 5 goals to win the game but they have struggled defensively allowing allowing 4.2 goals per game in their last 5 games. I expect a high scoring game and with the over cashing big time for the Canucks I think that's the best play here.
