The Canadiens are 11-4 in their last 15 Saturday games and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 6-2 in Canadiens last 8 Saturday games. The under is 3-1-1 in Jets last 5 home games. The Canadiens are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Winnipeg. The road team is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
The Montreal Canadiens are just in awful form right now, as they looked terrible against the lousy Senators, and they didn't put up much of a fight against the Jets in their last meeting. It's hard to find confidence in the Habs right now. The Winnipeg Jets are one of the hotter teams in the league right now and their offense looks way too comfortable. Hard not to like the Jets and the cheap price here.
