In a battle of the top Western Canadian teams, the Vancouver Canucks will set themselves apart against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. Vancouver is the superior team and the odds are tight considering. The Canucks can make for a good moneyline bet or NHL spread pick (puck line) since they are in better shape and can score a lot better than the struggling Jets.

Vancouver is listed at -125 on the moneyline or +210 on the puckline, an NHL ATS pick. The latter is a tempting bet as we can get double our wager if Vancouver beats Winnipeg by two or more goals. But we also expect the total to go under six goals (-125) and the Jets are still formidable despite their recent shortcomings.

Jets vs Canucks Moneyline Pick: Vancouver (-125)

Winnipeg is arguably the best defensive team in the NHL. It has allowed the fewest goals. However, the Jets have also labored to put the puck in the net having scored more than two goals once in its last 11 games. Uncoincidentally, it is 5-5-1 during this span. This will be its downfall against a prolific two-way team like Vancouver.

The Canucks give up under 2.3 goals at home but score over 3.7. In net, they boast Thatcher Demko who could just edge Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck for the Vezina Trophy honors. It’s worth a bet online that he wins and outdoes his counterpart here. If the goaltending is equal, Vancouver is better suited to score that one goal to win the game.

We see this game playing out like Winnipeg’s two games versus Toronto. Winnipeg will keep the scoring low but ultimately, Vancouver will score and pull away.


Jets vs Canucks Over/Under Pick: Under 6 (-125)

One of the most consistent NHL predictions is for Winnipeg’s games to go under their totals. The Jets’ last five road games have. And with two elite goaltenders guarding the posts, it’s hard to see this game producing more than six goals.
