BETTING TRENDS

Winnipeg are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Winnipeg's last 10 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 12 of Carolina's last 18 games against Winnipeg.

The total has gone UNDER in 15 of Carolina's last 20 games at home.

Prediction

The Jets can't lose another game if they want to stay in the fight for a playoff spot but the Canes are a tough team to beat at home. Winnipeg are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games on the road so looks like they're about to get eliminated. I'm going with the Hurricanes.

PICK: Hurricanes -1.5 (-105)
