The Ottawa Senators and Winnipeg Jets meet Thursday in NHL action at the Bell MTS Place.
The Ottawa Senators need a win to rebound from a 2-11-1 record. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.2 goals per game and are scoring on 13.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Tim Stutzle leads Ottawa with four goals, Nikita Zaitsev has six assists and Brady Tkachuk has 58 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 4.1 goals per game and are killing 75 percent of their opponents power plays. Matt Murray has allowed 34 goals on 299 shots faced and Marcus Hogberg has allowed 22 goals on 135 shots.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 21.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Nikolaj Ehlers leads Winnipeg with eight goals, Mark Scheifele has 10 assists and Andrew Copp has 35 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 79.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 23 goals on 258 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up nine goals on 110 shots.
The Senators are 12-47 in their last 59 road games and 13-39 in their last 52 overall. The Jets are 11-5 in their last 16 home games and 8-1 in their last 9 games as a favorite. The under is 5-0 in Senators last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Jets last 5 overall. The Senators are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Winnipeg and 0-5 in the last 5 meetings.
The Ottawa Senators continue to provide no betting value, as the losses keep piling up and the defensive effort has been horrible to say the last. The Winnipeg Jets have been hit or miss over the course of the season, but they do have three wins against the Senators, which includes outscoring them 14-7. I have no choice but to side with the Jets here, and I'll lay the juice, as I've been burned a few times lately laying the PL.
