Jets vs Coyotes Betting Prediction

Winnipeg comes into this game on a five-game winning streak and they are one of the hottest teams in the NHL right now, but they will be on the road for this game. The Jets are playing outstanding defense this season and they have allowed two goals or fewer in five straight games. Arizona has lost two games in a row, but they are 12-7-0 at home this year. The Jets are 12-4-2 on the road and I like them in this matchup. Winnipeg has been dominant over the last couple of weeks and I like that to continue in this game.
