Betting Lines and Predictions

MyBookie has a moneyline on this game of Winnipeg -210, while Ottawa currently sits at +175. The Jets are favored by 1.5 goals, and the over/under is 6.

The Senators are not playing well, especially on the defensive end of the ice. Their goaltending needs to be better as a result.

The Jets, on the other hand, are a solid team from top to bottom. They are balanced in the scoring department, and they have an elite goaltender. These are reasons they will defeat Ottawa Thursday night.
