The Winnipeg Jets and Vancouver Canucks meet Wednesday in NHL action at the Rogers Arena.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 25.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Kyle Connor leads Winnipeg with 16 goals, Mark Scheifele has 26 assists and Nikolaj Ehlers has 103 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 78.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 67 goals on 774 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up 18 goals on 224 shots.
The Vancouver Canucks look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 20.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 16 goals, Quinn Hughes has 26 assists and Bo Horvat has 82 shots on goal.

The Jets are 0-4 in their last 4 games following a win and 11-3 in their last 14 games as a favorite. The Canucks are 7-1 in their last 8 Wednesday games and 7-3 in their last 10 overall. The over is 8-2-1 in Jets last 11 overall. The under is 15-5-2 in Canucks last 22 overall. The Jets are 7-0 in the last 7 meetings in Vancouver and 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.
The Vancouver Canucks are playing solid enough to deserve a look in the underdog role, but the Winnipeg Jets are playing the more consistent hockey right now and have owned the Canucks this season. The Jets have won four of the six meetings this season against the Canucks, including outscoring them 9-2 in the last two meetings. The Jets have been nothing but money I the favorite role this season. I'll lay the cheap price with the Jets.
