Canucks vs. Jets Betting Analysis

Vancouver’s won just two of their last 17 games in Winnipeg and are 2-4-1 against the Jets in 2021. Monday will be the first half of back-to-back games for the Canucks against the Jets, who are closing out their season with a four-game homestand, Vancouver being the second and third games.

It’s a prime opportunity for the Jets to break a six-game losing streak at home — Winnipeg’s compiled just three wins on home ice since March. Overall the Jets are 11-12-1 at home this season but Vancouver’s got a division-worst eight road wins in 2021.

The Jets are a -181 home favourite to win on the NHL odds with the total listed at 5.5. The under is 6-1 in the last seven Canucks–Jets games played in the Prairies.

Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks just got Connor-McDavid’d throughout a four-game series against the Oilers, which didn’t do the Jets any favours too, as the series clinched home ice in the first round of the playoffs for Edmonton. McDavid scored 13 points in four games against Vancouver, while defeating them three of four times.

Tyler Graovac is a on a two-game scoring streak for the Canucks, while team-leading goal scorer Brock Boeser saw his three-game scoring streak come to an end Saturday in Edmonton. Boeser is the only 20-goal scorer on Vancouver’s roster and also leads the team with 41 points.

Winnipeg will be Vancouver’s second of four stops on their six-game road trip, which goes to Calgary next and lastly Edmonton for a game in each city.

Winnipeg Jets

The home woes continued for the Jets on Saturday when they opened their final regular season homestand with a 4-2 loss against Ottawa. Mason Appleton reached double-digit goals for the first time in his three-year career, while team-leading point-getter Mark Scheifele had a goal and an assist in the loss.

Scheifele now leads the Jets with 58 points, but overall the Jets’ offence is still in a big slump. Kyle Connor’s now gone seven games without a point and Pierre-Luc Dubois is on a six-game pointless streak of his own. Winnipeg’s also fallen out of the top 10 scoring teams in the NHL, now ranking 12th with 3.02 goals per game.

In net, Connor Hellebuyck’s still been stout with a .914 save percentage overall.
