Winnipeg vs Vancouver: prediction for the NHL game
Winnipeg are in 12th place in the Western Conference with only 41 points in the asset, so they are unlikely to qualify for the playoffs this season. Moreover, now the Jets are in poor form - they suffered five defeats in a row. In the last three matches, they lost to Boston (2:3) and Pittsburgh (2:3 SO) away, and to Florida (3:5) at home.
The Jets are more powerful at home, so today they will be looking to collect maximum points. Winnipeg will be without several key players, such as Nikolaj Ehlers and Josh Morrissey.
Vancouver have the same number of points as their hosts. After Bruce Boudreau took over as head coach, the club started showing excellent results, but currently they are on a losing streak of three games.
They lost three home games in a row - to Florida (1:2 SO), St. Louis (1:3), and Edmonton (2:3 OT). On their travels, the Canucks average three goals per game.
The teams have met twice this season, and both times Vancouver got the upper hand. We think that the Canucks will get another victory over the Jets, who are in poor form and are without several key players.
Our prediction - Vancouver to win
Vancouver scored at least three goals against Winnipeg in the last head-to-head games, and recently netted over three goals against Washington and Nashville.
Second bet - Vancouver IT over 2.5 goals
