Winnipeg Jets vs. Calgary Flames Predictions

Winnipeg Jets to win (-130)

The Jets look to have bounced back from a five-game losing streak. Winnipeg enters this game having won three straight, including their most recent win by a score of 4-2 over a great Vancouver team. The Jets have been one of the most steady, reliable teams in hockey for the majority of the season. The same cannot be said for the Flames.

Calgary has had losing streaks of four or more games on three occasions this season and if they lose this one it would be the fourth such losing streak. 

They have hovered .500 all season without catching any bit of consistency. This team cannot be relied on against a division contender, especially with the pressure of a three-game losing streak hanging over their heads. The Jets should take care of business in this one. 

Kyle Connor over 0.5 points (-210)

Kyle Connor has missed 16 games this season due to injury, but he still leads the Jets with 19 goals. Connor has 32 points in 36 games played and is on the top line and top power play. This is a very important player on this team. His ice time and spot on this roster reflects as much. 

In a game in which the Jets will get a big pushback from a desperate Flames team, Winnipeg will lean on their top players to get the job done. Kyle Connor certainly qualifies as a top player for the Jets. 

Connor and his linemates may get even more ice time than usual, especially if this game stays close come late in the third period. The 27-year-old is a very good player, in a great situation and with quality teammates in support. They have a favorable matchup in this game and this plus money is fantastic value for Connor to tally a point. 

Over 5.5 total goals (-125)

The volatility of the Flames is the primary reason why the over has appeal in this matchup. They have allowed 13 goals in their last three games which is an average of 4.33 goals allowed per game.

In their three games prior to that, the Flames scored 14 goals for an average of 4.67 goals scored per game, which shows that they are a team that can score or allow goals in bunches.

The total of 5.5 goals also bodes better for the over as it is the lowest total on the slate. Granted, it is that low due to the Jets’ strength of goal prevention. But as mentioned, Winnipeg has had a bit of a tumultuous last eight games. 

While they are more of a sure thing, their recent form has been a bit of a roller coaster and that coupled with the volatility of the Flames makes over 5.5 total goals appealing.
