Can Winnipeg continue its rise in the West vs Nashville?

The Winnipeg Jets land in Nashville tonight to face the Predators at Bridgestone Arena. The Jets have been on a tear of late, going 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS in their last six. They’ll need to bring their big-boy pants for tonight’s matchup against the Predators, who are 6-1 SU in their last seven games and have an excellent home record this season at 6-2 SU. The Preds opened tonight’s tilt as -135 favorites.

SHARK BITES
  • Nashville is 4-2 SU in its last 6 vs Winnipeg.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Nashville’s last 5 games at home.
  • Winnipeg is 7-1 ATS in its last 8 games on the road.

The Predators may be regaining the form that carried them all the way through the playoffs to the Stanley Cup final last season. Nashville has been getting stellar goaltending from Pekka Rinne (10th in GAA) and the Preds have needed it as their offense has only produced one player with 20 points this year (Filip Forsberg), with no double-digit goal scorers. Consider their -1.5 puckline, valued at +212, if you’re considering backing the Preds in this one.

Not to be outdone, Winnipeg has been on a mission this season to break back into the playoffs. The Jets have missed the postseason in back-to-back years but sit second in the Western Conference with 27 points. Their offense has been clicking too, as they rank sixth in scoring, averaging 3.37 goals per games. The one knock on the surging Jets is they’re 5-4 SU on the road this season. The Jets may still end up as one of the Western Conference’s top teams this year but it may be best to fade them in this matchup.

The total opened at 5.5 in this showdown and bettors should consider the OVER. Nashville has averaged 4.8 goals per game in its last seven and the OVER has hit in six of them. When you factor in Winnipeg’s scoring prowess, this one could turn into a great game of puck for fans.
