Minnesota Wild vs Winnipeg Jets prediction

The Minnesota Wild have played good enough hockey over the last week to where they're worth a look in the underdog role. However, the Winnipeg Jets have been one of the hottest teams in the league over the last month, and they've done a lot of their heavy lifting on their home ice. The Winnipeg Jets are 11-5-2 at home, and that includes winning 4 of their last 5 tries. The Wild have had issues on the road and this is a weird spot with an early start time. I expect a sluggish game, but I'm going to lay the juice with the Jets at home.
