Detroit Red Wings
Detroit are currently on the 9th line in the Eastern Conference table with 37 points in the asset. The team is on a three-game losing streak: the Red Wings recently suffered defeats to Los Angeles (0:4), Anaheim (3:4 SO), and San Jose (3:4 OT).
Two of Detroit's most important players, Dylan Larkin and Troy Stecher, are currentyl out due to injuries, and that might be the main reason for the Winds' poor performance. At home, Jeff Blashill's charges usually show good results this season and, perhaps, with the support of the stands, they will be able to get a win in the upcoming fixture.
Winnipeg are 6th in the Central Division with 37 points to their name. Recently, the Jets defeated Vegas (5:4 OT) and Arizona (3:1) away from home, but then they got devastated by Colorado (1:7).
The Jets lack consistency and rarely mount long winning streaks this season. On average, Dave Lowry's charges concede 3-4 goals per game.
In 3 out of 5 games, the Jets conceded more than 2 goals.
In 4 head-to-head games out of 5, more than one goal was scored in the second period.
Detroit will be looking to capitalize on their home advantage and get back to the winning ways. The Red Wings have earned most of their points this season at their home court, and Winnipeg rarely win in regulation on their travels. Moreover, the Jets lost momentum, as they haven't played for a whole week.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Detroit
Detroit often score three goals in home games. The Red Wings have a solid line of attack, so they are capable of scoring more than two goals against the Jets.
Second wager - Detroit IT over 2.5 goals
