Two teams in the Central Division are set to square off Monday night with the Winnipeg Jets playing host to the Arizona Coyotes. Winnipeg responded to Friday’s blowout loss in Minnesota with a 4-2 win in Calgary on Saturday.  The Coyotes have dropped their last two games and sit dead last in the Western Conference standings, just one point ahead of Ottawa for last place in the entire NHL.

The Jets are -291 favourites to win on the NHL odds, with a total of 5.5.

Coyotes vs. Jets NHL Betting Odds

Winnipeg is just one of several teams the Coyotes have struggled against in recent years, with the Jets winning seven of the last 10 meetings between these teams.  That record is likely a big reason why 89 per cent of Sports Interaction bettors are backing Winnipeg on Monday.  The total has gone Over in four of the last six games in this head-to-head series.  Almost 70 per cent of action is taking the Over for this one.

The forever “rebuilding” Coyotes have been easy prey when they’re on the road.  Arizona has lost 10 of their 12 road games this year and have only managed one win in their last 12 trips to Winnipeg.  They’re 9-12 against the spread this season, covering five times on the road.  The total has gone Under in six of the Coyotes’ last eight games.

The Jets are just 1-5 straight up over their last six games, but they’ve played much better at home this year, where they’re 7-2-1.  Winnipeg is 11-10 ATS overall and have covered in seven of 10 home games.  The total has gone Under in eight of the Jets’ last 11 games.

Arizona Coyotes

Arizona seems to be doing everything in their power to tank this season and miss the playoffs for the eighth time in the last nine years.  They kept it close in a 3-2 loss against Dallas on Saturday, but their record now sits at just 4-15-2 on the year.  Antoine Roussel and Travis Boyd had the Coyotes’ goals against Dallas, while Scott Wedgewood stopped 26 of 29 shots in the loss.  It’s pretty easy to see why Arizona hasn’t been able to win.  They average the fewest goals per game in the NHL at 1.86 and they are 30th in goals against per game at 3.57.

Shayne Gostisbehere has had a bit of a bounce-back season and leads the team with 15 points (3G, 12A) in 21 games.  One major concern for multiple players is plus/minus.  Jakob Chychrun is a league-worst -25 and four of the 10 worst plus/minuses in the NHL are Coyotes players.  Rookie Karel Vejmelka is expected to get the start in Winnipeg.  Vejmelka is 1-9-1 with a 3.06 goals-against average and .905 save percentage.

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets snapped a five-game losing streak with their win in Calgary on Saturday.  After trailing 2-0 early in the first period, Winnipeg scored four unanswered goals to get the win.  The Jets had only scored five goals during their five-game slide.  Kyle Connor scored twice on Saturday, while Paul Statsny and Andrew Copp also found the back of the net.  Connor Hellebuyck stopped 34 of 36 shots faced.  Connor leads the team in goals (14) and points (24).  Pierre-Luc Dubois seems to be feeling more comfortable in Winnipeg this year after being traded from Columbus midway through last season.  Dubois is second on the team with 18 points (11G, 7A) in 21 games.

After a shaky start against Calgary, Hellebuyck shut the door the rest of the game.  It was a much needed performance for a team that allowed 16 goals over their previous four games.  The Jets are expected to give the nod to Hellebuyck again on Monday.  He’s gone 7-5-4 this year and posted a 2.70 GAA and .917 SV.  For his career, Hellebuyck is 6-2 with a 2.72 GAA against Arizona.
