Canucks vs Jets NHL Betting Analysis

Most NHL teams play better at home than they do on the road. That’s not true for the Winnipeg Jets. Winnipeg has a 14-8-2-0 away record. Their home record is 10-10-1-1, though. To make matters worse for the Jets in this game, they haven’t played their best hockey.

Winnipeg is 2-4 SU in their last 6. The 2 wins happened against Montreal and Toronto on the road. The 4 losses happened versus Minnesota and Boston on the road and against Toronto and Nashville at home.

Even though Vancouver has a losing road record, they’re playing much better than Winnipeg. The Canucks are 8-2 SU in their last 10. They should beat the Jets on Tuesday night. Back Vancouver to keep pace in the Pacific Division with a big win.
