New York Islanders vs Winnipeg Jets prediction

The New York Islanders have won 7 straight games and 8 of the last 10 meetings against the Jets overall, so there's some value looking at the underdog here. However, the Islanders are coming off a rough week, and it's hard seeing them right the ship against one of the hottest teams in the league. The Winnipeg Jets are on quite a tear with wins in 8 of their last 9 games, and they're at home where they're 15-6-2 on the season. Two teams going in different directions. Give me the Jets and the PL for max betting value.
