Capitals have been dominant vs Jets

The Winnipeg Jets will look to avoid a three-game losing streak at home tonight vs the Washington Capitals. The Jets have lost two games in a row at home for the first time this season but still sport a solid record in their barn at 20-7 SU. The Jets opened at -135 to get win No. 21.

  • The Capitals are 13-4 SU in their last 17 games after losing as a favorite.
  • The total has gone UNDER in six of the Jets’ last eight games at home.
  • Winnipeg is 1-4 ATS in its last five games at home.

Washington hasn’t been the most reliable bet on the road this season at 12-13 SU. The Capitals are coming off a tough 5-4 road loss vs Detroit on Sunday but despite that, they’re 4-2 SU in their last six road games.

Part of Washington’s resurgence, after having such a rough start to the season, has been the play of Alex Ovechkin. Ovie had a down year by his standards last season (69 points in 82 games) but has come back with a vengeance and leads the NHL in goals with 33. Bettors who are looking for an edge to back their wagers on the Caps should know they’re 10-2 SU in the last 12 games vs Winnipeg, outscoring the Jets 48-22 in that span.

The Jets are in the midst of a 10-game homestand, their longest of the season. Winnipeg is trying to get to the top spot in the Western Conference and sits three points back of the first-place Golden Knights. Winnipeg has been an excellent bet at home vs teams with winning records and is 9-2 SU in its last 11 games in that circumstance.

The total opened at 5.5 and trends are pointing toward an OVER. The total has gone OVER in six of the Capitals’ last seven games and they’re averaging 3.6 goals per game in February. Winnipeg is the second highest scoring team in the league at home this season (3.63 goals per game) and the OVER has hit in seven of the last 10 games in this matchup.
