Anaheim is concluding a four-game road trip, one that saw them travel all weekend, as they played Saturday in Minnesota. 

Ducks vs. Jets NHL Betting Odds

Given the recent disparity between the two sides, it’s little surprise that Winnipeg holds a 5-2 edge over the past seven encounters dating back to 2019. Moreover, the Jets have won the past two season series 2-1. The fifth win came only a few weeks ago when they zipped past their opponents 3-2. Kyle Conner was on fire that night. His hat trick represented all his side’s goals. 

Dallas Eakins’ unit has had a rough go this season. The California club is 6-16-3 in the standings. Their performances against the spread haven’t inspired much hope either, as they sit at 10-15. Losses have begun piling up, with the team on the wrong end of the scoresheet eight times out of the last ten games. A glimmer of hope for betters: those same ten games saw them go 6-4 ATS.

On the opposite end of the spectrum are Rick Bowness’ Jets. A sparkling 14-7-1 win-loss tally has them in a battle with the Dallas Stars for first in the Central Division. At 13-9, the unit’s propensity to cover the spread is strong. It’s been a little more difficult covering at home recently. In the past eight games in front of their supporters, they’ve covered only half. 

Anaheim Ducks

Playing away to a Jets team that has performed admirably all year doesn’t sound like the best situation to right wrongs, but one needs to start somewhere. 

It isn’t as if they’ll have much time to dwell over the most recent defeat (which can be a good thing). Anaheim arrived in Minnesota on Saturday afternoon hoping to halt a four-game losing streak. The most recent was the result of a rather lethargic performance Thursday night in Dallas. NHL leading scorer Jason Robertson showed who’s boss with a hat trick that handed the visiting Ducks a 5-0 loss. Saturday it was close but no cigar, as they fell 5-4 in a shootout. They’ll be kicking themselves for letting a 4-3 lead slip away with barely 2 ½ to go. Two astonishing statistics plague them: 4.17 goals per game conceded and a -43 goal differential. Dead last in the league, deservedly so. 

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets are in a comfortable position heading into this game. They earned a rest day on Saturday whereas the visitors had to travel immediately following a bitter defeat. Plus, the team has few injuries to speak of. 

Heading into the Friday night tilt with Columbus, the Jets were flying high with a three-game win streak which began with a key 2 points earned against divisional foes the Stars. One Sunday ago, all the big guns came out firing in a 7-2 drubbing of the Blackhawks (Kyle Conner, Pierre-Luc Dubois, and Mark Scheifele all scoring). The best was yet to come when the defending champion Avalanche came to town, only for Winnipeg to bury them 5-0, courtesy of a Blake Wheeler hat trick. Friday’s 4-1 blip versus Columbus was frustrating. They played relatively well and perhaps deserved better but were stymied by a goalie in top form. Their own backup, David Rittich, did little to help the cause.
