The Boston Bruins are in Winnipeg tonight where they take on the Jets. This has been a fairly even series over the past few years with each team winning 4 of the last 8 meetings. The Bruins however have had a hard time winning in Winnipeg with just one win in their last 8 trips.
Head to Head Trends
Bruins are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings in Winnipeg.
Under is 6-1-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Winnipeg Jets (-115)
The Winnipeg Jets are last in the Central Division with 51 points a full 25 points back of the 1st place Washington Capitals. The Jets had a solid start to the season but things have taken a turn for the worse of late losing 8 of their last 13 games.
The Jets have below average offense and defense. On offense they are averaging 2.58 goals per game while allowing 2.85 goals per game on defense. At home their defensive numbers are exactly the same allowing 2.85 goals per game but their offense is much better also averaging 2.85 goals per game.
Winnipeg Jets Trends
Jets are 1-5 in their last 6 home games.
Jets are 3-8 in their last 11 games following a win.
Boston Bruins (+105)
The Boston Bruins are 4th in the Atlantic Division with 62 points 8 points back of the 1st place Florida Panthers. The Bruins are a fairly solid team for the most part they did have a rough stretch about a month ago that saw them win just 2 of 10 games but they have bounced back nicely since then winning 7 of their last 11 games.
The Bruins got crushed 9-2 by the LA Kings in their last game. I watched most of that game and even though the Bruins looked good early they played absolutely horrible the rest of the game and in the 3rd period it didn’t even look like they were trying anymore. That game ended up being probably the worst game the Bruins have played in the last 10 years.
Boston Bruins Trends
Bruins are 4-0 in their last 4 road games.
Bruins are 76-36 in their last 112 vs. a team with a losing record.
I actually like the Boston Bruins over the Jets in this one. In most sports and especially hockey teams do not like when they get blown out it obviously pisses them off so usually they take it out on their next opponent so I expect the Bruins to come out hard and fast in this one.
Free Pick: Boston Bruins +105
