Los Angeles Kings

Winnipeg Jets


WIN Jets Point Spread

Under 6.0 Game Totals

Money Line Pick

These teams have one thing in common and that is they both currently sit outside the playoffs. The only problem is Winnipeg is just 1 point behind Arizona, while the Kings are the worst team in the Western Conference. The Kings have won two in a row, but have lost seven of their last ten. Winnipeg have won four of their last six, so clearly they are playing the better hockey. Note that Los Angeles is 4-10 in their last 14 meetings played in Winnipeg. The home team is 19-9 in the last 28 meetings between these two teams. With the Kings being one of the worst road teams in the NHL, I have to fade them here and take the Jets on the money line.

Over Under Pick

Unlike the side, I like this total more. Winnipeg is averaging 2.9 goals per game this season, while Los Angeles is even worse, scoring 2.5 goals. Defensively, they are pretty even, allowing about 3 goals per game. The Jets allow less than 3 goals per game at home, which is why I like this game to stay under the total. Also, note that the under has cashed in six straight meetings between these two teams. With a lackluster offense like the Kings, I look for Winnipeg to do majority of the scoring and we will see another easy cash towards the under.
