Senators vs Jets Betting Prediction

Ottawa comes into this matchup tied for last in the Atlantic division, but they have won four games in a row and are playing very well. Winnipeg is currently third in the Central, but they have lost five games in a row. The Jets are 23-10-3 at home, while Ottawa is 12-20-2 on the road. The Senators have been a mess on the road this season, but they have won two road games in a row. Winnipeg has been one of the best defensive teams in the NHL this season, but their goal scoring is very inconsistent. I hate to fade the Jets at home, but I can’t pick them until they snap the losing streak. Take the Senators here.
