Central division foes will clash for the third time this season when the Winnipeg Jets and Dallas Stars duke it out on Thursday, Feb 29. The meeting will be the third of four this season, with Dallas having already won the previous two in Winnipeg and looking to take control of the series and the Central Division.

Both teams are tied for first in the Central with 79 points, though the Jets have the edge with two more wins than Dallas. The Stars will try to change that and take the lead, and despite NHL odds favoring them, the Jets are a solid underdog on the road.

Jets vs Stars Moneyline Pick: Winnipeg Jets (+115)

Though the Stars are favored at home, the Jets are a solid NHL pick to continue their win streak and get it done on the road.

Dallas has had Winnipeg’s number so far this season, winning the first two games in the series. However, that was three months ago, and after the Jets lost both games at home, they should be looking to repay the favor and even the score on the Stars’ home ice.

Winnipeg has scored four or more goals in three of its last four games, giving up 2.5 goals a game during their four-game win streak. Meanwhile, the Stars have had trouble scoring recently, averaging just 1.4 goals a game in its last five, being held to one goal in three of those games.

With the Jets also having a solid 16-8-3 record on the road and Dallas’ offense not likely to keep up, the Jets are a solid play as an underdog.

 

Jets vs Stars Player Prop: Kyle Connor Anytime Goalscorer (+160)

Connor leads the Jets with 24 goals, and he has continued to be a key piece during their recent win streak, scoring at least one goal in Winnipeg’s last four games for a total of five.

He has found production against the Stars as well, notching one assist in two games so far this season, while he has nine goals in 20 games on the road. With the Stars giving up 3.2 goals a game in their last five and the Jets’ offense rolling, Connor is an excellent option for a player prop bet.
