NHL Betting Trends

Las Vegas 

The under is 3-0-1 in the last four Golden Knights road games. The home team is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.

Winnipeg

The over is 4-0 in the last four Jets games on Sunday. Winnipeg is 1-4 in the last five meetings.

Prediction: 

Las Vegas has been the better team of late, but the Jets are very strong at home and will be in desperation mode. Expect a last-ditch strong effort to keep this series alive. Winnipeg is a home underdog and the right pick here due to its 37-10-2-0 home mark on the season.
