Just a night after losing a heartbreaker to the Capitals in overtime, the Jets must deal with immediate turnover as they head to the Joe Louis Arena to take on the 6-4-1 Detroit Red Wings in Hockeytown tonight. Detroit had the day off yesterday so expect them to press the issue in the first frame to take advantage of Winnipeg’s weary legs.
- The Jets are 4-1 in their last five games as a moneyline underdog of 153 or more.
- The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Jets’ last 15 games with a closing total of 5.5 or more.
- The Red Wings are 8-3 in their last 11 games at home.
Although they’ve gotten off to a decent start, the Red Wings are one of the several teams in the NHL that are overachieving. Detroit is incredibly weak defensively and lacks the dynamic aspect on offense they’ve had in years past. They are getting outshot dramatically through 11 games and are very lucky to be in the situation they are currently. Much of their success has hinged on the success of Jimmy Howard, a 32-year-old goalie that has not posted a season save percentage over .910 since the 2012-13 season – this is not sustainable.
Winnipeg, on the other hand, is a team on the rise and is just starting to come into their own. Their young goaltender Connor Hellebuyck is a future star in the making and is probable to start in the Jets’ net tonight.
The Jets have struggled as underdogs this year as they are just 1-5 when favored to lose but that one win came when they were +153 dogs in Colorado.
