Wild look to climb back into the playoff race vs Jets

The Minnesota Wild make the trek to Manitoba to face off against the Winnipeg Jets. The Wild are starting to come back to life this season, going 6-3 SU in their last nine games, and are one point out of a wild-card playoff spot in the Western Conference. They’ll face a stiff challenge at the MTS Centre, where the Jets are 7-3 SU this season, and opened as +115 road dogs.

SHARK BITES
  • Winnipeg is 6-1 SU in its last seven games at home.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Wild’s last five games against the Jets.
  • The Jets are 16-2 SU in their last 18 games with one day off between games.

Minnesota has had some ups and downs to start the year with injuries to Zach Parise, Charlie Coyle and Mikael Granlund. All three players are top-six forwards for the Wild and the “next man up” mentality only works for so long. And it’s reflected in the standings as the Wild sit 10th in the West after finishing second last season. They’ll face an uphill battle to get the win tonight in Winnipeg as they’re 2-4 SU in their last six games in the Peg.

The Jets, on the other hand, are skyrocketing to the top of the West as they sit third in the Western Conference and are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games. If Winnipeg can get more from Patrik Laine, they might be the most dangerous team in the league. The super sophomore only has 17 points on the year and he was expected to make a leap into the upper tier of wingers in the NHL after being drafted second overall behind Auston Matthews in 2016.

The total opened at 5.5 goals and the OVER looks promising for bettors. Both of these teams average over three goals per game and the OVER has hit in six of the Jets’ last eight home games. Expect another score-fest!
