Vancouver has a silver lining in this matchup however, as they clinched a 3-1 victory over the Jets in part one of this back to back set.
Although the Canucks offense has improved as of late, their offense is still uninspiring with a goals for average of 2.69 on 29.14 shots per game. Goaltending continues to trend in the wrong direction for the team. In their last 10 games, the Canucks have given up 3 or more goals in 7 of them. Demko has a 2.96 GAA and Holtby has a GAA of 3.34.
One silver lining for the Canucks is that they are coming off a win over the Jets in their most recent outing, winning 3-1. Nils Hoglander performed as well, with 2 goals and 6 shots on net.
Even more reassuring, Thatcher Demko played a great game and shut down the Jets and their 40 shots, walking away with a .975 save percentage.
Fresh off of a 7 game losing streak, and starting a whole new streak of losses, the Winnipeg Jets have gone (1-9-0) in their last 10 games. This happens to be the worst current 10 game record not only in the North Division, but the entire NHL.
Furthermore, the Jets are coming off a loss to the Canucks where despite many shot attempts, they couldn’t seem to get the puck in the net.
However, despite the outcome, the Jest did have a number of opportunities, with Kyle Connor and Mark Scheifele being involved in some offensive chances.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Vancouver are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games.
- Vancouver are 3-15 SU in their last 18 games against Winnipeg.
- Vancouver are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games on the road.
Free Vancouver Canucks vs. Winnipeg Jets NHL Prediction:
It will be interesting to see which of these teams steps out from their poor recent performances and delivers. If the Canucks goaltending can repeat this last performance then they have a good shot. However, despite the recent track record of the Jets, I can’t ignore the goaltending issues of Vancouver. On top of this, in nearly every matchup this season between the two teams, Winnipeg has managed to overwhelm Vancouver with their offense.
I’m taking the Jets at -140.
