Golden Knights vs Jets Betting Prediction

Winnipeg comes into this game really struggling and they have lost four games in a row, but they did play slightly better against Edmonton last time out. Vegas had their three game winning streak snapped in their last game, as they blew a 4-1 third period lead to the hottest team in the NHL. The Golden Knights are only 16-14-6 on the road, while Winnipeg is 23-9-3 on home ice. Winnipeg has been one of the best defensive teams in the NHL this season, but they have allowed 17 goals in their last four games. I don’t love this game, but I am going to side with the Jets, as the Golden Knights have been too inconsistent on the road.
