Jets vs. Oilers 2/15/21 Betting Analysis

Winnipeg is 2-2-0 on the road, with both those wins coming at NHL-worst Ottawa. Edmonton is 4-4-0 at home and this will be the team’s first game at Rogers Place since Feb. 2.

The teams split two games in Winnipeg last month, with the Oilers winning the first 4-3 and losing the second 6-4. Andrew Copp (2G, 3A) and Nikolaj Ehlers (2G, 3A) led the Jets with five points each – Ehlers was a team-best plus-4 in the series. Adam Lowry added two goals and two assists and was plus-3. Connor Hellebuyck and Laurent Brossoit each allowed four goals in their start with Hellebuyck winning his.

Connor McDavid had a goal and three assists in the series and Leon Draisaitl two goals and two assists. Mikko Koskinen allowed eight goals on 70 shots.

Last season, Winnipeg was 1-1 in Edmonton. The Jets have won eight of the past 11 in the series. The over is 6-2 in the previous eight.

Winnipeg Jets

Winnipeg cost bettors some big money Saturday as it was beaten at home as a massive favourite by Ottawa, 2-1. Brady Tkachuk scored on a tip-in goal with 8.2 seconds left. Mark Scheifele scored the Jets’ lone goal and leads the team with 18 points. Hellebuyck saved 27 of 29 shots and is 6-4-1 with a 2.36 GAA and .921 SV. Centre Pierre-Luc Dubois, acquired in the shocking Patrik Laine trade a couple of weeks ago, missed the game and practice Sunday with a lower-body injury and isn’t expected to play Monday. He hasn’t scored in two games with the Jets. The Jets are 2-7 in their past nine as road dogs.

Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers come off an unusual break in this condensed schedule, last taking the ice Thursday and winning their third in a row, 3-0 in Montreal. Neither McDavid nor Draisaitl, the two leading scorers in the league, had a point in that game – marking Edmonton’s first win when neither had one since Nov. 28, 2017 vs. Arizona. Darnell Nurse scored his sixth goal of the season to surpass his total from the entire 2019-20 season when he had five in 71 games. No. 2 netminder Mike Smith had 38 saves for his 40th career shutout. He’s the 45th goaltender in NHL history to record 40 career shutouts. Winger Jesse Puljujarvi was out as he was placed in COVID protocol, but he cleared protocols on Saturday and should play here. The Oilers are 4-0 in their past four as favourites.
