Winnipeg Jets vs Vancouver Canucks prediction

The Winnipeg Jets are wroth a look here, given that they've won 4 straight games against the Canucks and had their way offensively in those games. However, the Canucks are at home with the rest advantage and if there was a time to get some payback, it would be here. The Canucks are 20-6-3 at home this season. I'd need more plus money to pull the trigger on the Jets. I'm siding with the Canucks.
