Winnipeg is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall and 28-11 in their last 39 games as a road favorite while under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games following a win. Ottawa is 22-53 in their last 75 games overall and 0-4 in their last 4 games as a home underdog while the under is 8-0 in their last 8 home games. The over is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams.

I get why the case could be made for either side here as Winnipeg’s been a money machine for us this season and Ottawa’s been really good at home. However, with that said, The Jets have done a good job ratcheting up the defensive pressure lately and Ottawa has done a good job limiting goals on their end as well in spots. I just think this is a game that comes in under the number so give me the under in this spot.
