Will the Jets continue great run at home vs Blackhawks?

The Winnipeg Jets will host the Chicago Blackhawks tonight and the Jets continue to surprise the NHL. With 41 points and at 18-13 SU, Winnipeg has become a force in the Western Conference. And the Jets have been a great home bet this season, winning seven straight at the MTS Centre and eight of their last nine games at home. Winnipeg opened as a -130 favorite to take down the Blackhawks, who have won three straight.

  • The Blackhawks are 1-4 SU in their last five games against the Jets.
  • The Blackhawks are 2-12 SU in their last 14 games vs divisional opponents.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Jets’ last seven games with two days off between games.

Chicago may be turning the corner and the Blackhawks desperately need a push in the Western Conference standings. The ’Hawks currently are on the outside looking in on the playoff picture behind Dallas and Minnesota. Where the Blackhawks have come up short this season is on the road as their record is awful. Chicago is 6-9 SU away from the United Center and has dropped four of its last five road games. Another facet where the Blackhawks are struggling is on the power play where they rank 29th in the NHL and have only converted two of their last 30 opportunities in eight games with the man advantage.

The Jets will look to keep plugging away at the MTS Centre and it’s their offense that has been carrying them this season. Led by captain Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele, who both are in the top 15 in scoring, Winnipeg is the highest-scoring team in the league at home, averaging 4.36 goals per game. Bettors will also be interested to know that the Jets are 5-1 ATS in their last six games vs Chicago.

The total opened at 5.5 and the OVER could be a decent wager to get a payday. As mentioned, the Jets are a scoring force at home and the OVER has hit in four of their last five games in their barn.
