Winnipeg Jets vs Arizona Coyotes 3/27/22 NHL Picks, Predictions, Odds

The Arizona Coyotes and the Winnipeg Jets meet in NHL action from the Canada Life Arena on Sunday night.

The Arizona Coyotes come into this game looking to snap a four-game losing skid after a 4-2 loss to the Calgary Flames last time out. Clayton Keller leads the Coyotes with 62 points, logging a team-high 27 goals and 35 assists while Shayne Gostisbehere has 30 assists as part of his 40 points this season. Nick Schmaltz has 44 points with 19 goals and 25 assists and Phil Kessel also has 39 points with 32 assists while Lawson Crouse has 20 goals and Travis Boyd has 12 goals on the year. Karel Vejmelka’s seen the majority of the action in goal for Arizona, going 10-25-1 with a 3.39 GAA and a .904 save percentage this season.

The Winnipeg Jets will hope to build on their 4-3 OT win over the Columbus Blue Jackets in their last matchup. Kyle Connor leads the Jets in scoring with 82 points including a team-high 41 goals and 41 assists while Pierre-Luc Dubois has 50 points with 25 goals and 25 assists. Mark Scheifele has 60 points with 24 goals and 36 assists and Brenden Dillon also has a team-best +17 plus/minus for the Jets this season. Blake Wheeler also has 41 assists while Connor Hellebuyck has made the majority of the starts in goal for Winnipeg, going 23-23-9 with a 2.98 GAA and a .910 save percentage this season.

Arizona is 26-53 in their last 79 road games and 22-50 in their last 72 games as an underdog while the over is 7-0-2 in their last 9 games against a team with a losing record. Winnipeg is 5-2 in their last 7 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 division games.

I get the case to be made either way here, but the Coyotes are back to providing little value for us as bettors and while I haven’t been their biggest fan, the reality is that the Jets are just the better team playing better hockey right now. Give me the Jets on the -1.5 puck line here.
