Money Line Pick

While this is not the most exciting game on the Tuesday card, it is a game that holds a lot of weight for the Jets. Winnipeg is currently tied with Arizona and Nashville for the final playoff spot in the West, so this is a game the Jets cannot afford to lose. Especially against a team like Buffalo, who are all but out of playoff contention. The Sabres have now lost three games in a row and are not showing any life down the stretch. Buffalo are just 5-13 in their last 18 meetings in Winnipeg, and I look for their struggles to continue. It would be a lean at this price, but take Winnipeg.

Over Under Pick

The total is another play I do not have a strong lean on. Buffalo are by no means a great scoring team, averaging just 2.9 goals per game. Over their three game losing, streak, they are scoring 2 goals while allowing 4 goals. As for Winnipeg, they are only scoring 2.2 over their last five, but playing great defense and only allowing 2.4. The Sabres defense is too shaky for me to trust an under, so I will lean over here.
