Chicago Blackhawks

Winnipeg Jets


CHI Blackhawks Point Spread

Under 6.5 Game Totals

Money Line Pick

Two teams fighting for playoff seeding will face off in this Western Conference match-up. The Blackhawks are sitting outside of the playoffs, just three points behind the Arizona Coyotes for the final playoff spot. Winnipeg are a playoff team right now, but are by no means safe. They are not exactly playing great hockey either, going 2-6 in their last 8 games. The Jets are not even a great home team, posting a record of just 13-12-3 in their home games. The Jets are just 3-9 in their last 12 home games and 2-7 in their last 9 games following a win. Chicago have won 2 of the 3 head to head meetings this season and having said that, I lean to Chicago to get the win.

Over Under Pick

The total is not a play I like that much either as it is set at 6.5. We have two teams here that are averaging 2.9 goals per game. Both defenses also allow about 3 goals. As of recently, both teams are playing much better defense, allowing 2.6 goals or less. Two of the three meetings this season have gone under the total, so that is the only way I can look here.
