Bet Wild to Cover as Road ‘Dog vs Jets

A recent surge has Minnesota just two points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. However, the Wild will be facing a Winnipeg Jets team that has outscored opponents by 25 goals at home this season. When looking at our best NHL bets today, Winnipeg is favored for the 10th consecutive home game.

Winnipeg won the first two meetings of the season by 3-2 and 4-2 scores in late December to make it three wins in a row against Minnesota dating to last season. Just one of the last five games between the Wild and Jets went over the total.

Wild vs Jets Over/Under Pick: Under 6 (-120)

Are there any goals left for the Wild after a crazy 10-7 win over Vancouver on Monday when Minnesota became the first team since 1999 to score six goals in less than six minutes. The 10 goals match Minnesota’s output in the previous three games combined. That is something to consider for NHL over/under predictions.

Winnipeg has allowed the fewest goals in the NHL this season. The Jets have allowed 11 goals in its last seven home games.

We’d feel a little better if the total went to instead of its current six-goal total.

Winnipeg has surrendered seven goals in its last four games on the back end of back-to-back games while Minnesota gave up 10 goals in the second game of its last two back-to-back contests. Go with the Jets to slow things down in this matchup when making the betting pick.

Minnesota is without forwards Pat Maroon and Marcus Foligno.


Wild vs Jets ATS Pick: Wild +1½ (-185)

Minnesota is playing some of its best hockey of the season right now and even if the Wild don’t manage to win this game outright, it won’t be a surprise to see the game end up as a one-goal game.

Minnesota has won five road games in a row after a tough start to the season playing on the road.


Wild vs Jets Player Prop Pick: Joel Eriksson Ek 1+ Goals (+160)

Joel Eriksson Ek has already established a career high with 28 goals after scoring three times in the win over Vancouver. He has goals in four straight games and there is pretty good value with +160 odds when it comes to the NHL hockey bets today for Eriksson Ek to score at least once against Winnipeg.

Questions Of The Day

How have the Wild fared in recent road games against the Winnipeg Jets?

Minnesota has won just two of its last six road games against Winnipeg with all six of those games being decided by at least two goals.

What is a good player prop option for the Winnipeg Jets?

After failing to record in his first four games with the Jets after being traded by the Montreal Canadiens, Sean Monahan has four goals over the last two games. So it is worth considering the +250 odds for Monahan to score a goal.
