The Winnipeg Jets and the Edmonton Oilers meet in NHL action from Rogers Place on Saturday night.

The Winnipeg Jets will look to rebound from a 2-1 loss to the Oilers in their last matchup. Mark Scheifele leads the Jets in scoring with 37 points including 12 goals and a team-high 25 assists while Nikolaj Ehlers has 31 points with 15 goals and 16 assists and Kyle Connor has 29 points with a team-high 16 goals and 13 assists. Blake Wheeler also has 26 points with 18 assists while Neal Pionk has 20 assists this season. As a team, Winnipeg is averaging 3.3 goals on 29.7 shots to go along with a 25.9% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.9 goals on 31.8 shots against in addition to a 77.5% success rate on the PK this season.

The Edmonton Oilers will look to build on their win over the Jets last time out. Connor McDavid leads the Oilers in scoring with 58 points including 20 goals and 38 assists, both team-highs, while Leon Draisaitl isn’t far behind with 49 points including 17 goals and 32 assists.

Winnipeg is 7-1 in their last 8 games after scoring 2 or less in their last game while the over is 8-1 in their last 9 games overall. Edmonton is 5-0 in their last 5 home games and 6-2 in their last 8 games overall while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games following a win. The favorite is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.

I think a case could be made for either side here, but realistically, the Jets continue to get no respect whatsoever from oddsmakers despite being a beast in the underdog role this season. I get Edmonton has McDavid and Draisaitl, but the Jets are the deeper team with the more reliable talent between the pipes as well. I’ll take my chances with Winnipeg and the plus money here.
