Money Line: -121.00 Winnipeg (Away)
I like the Winnipeg Jets to win this game against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday. The Jets were looking great lately winning 3 games in a row but then they ran into a buzzsaw Avalanche team in their most recent game who destroyed them 7-1. The Avalanche are a very good team and it is tough to go into Colorado and beat them on their home ice. The Jets were playing very well up to that game and they just ran into a team that is a lot better than they are. I think they are due for a bounce back here and I expect them to be hungry after that embarrassment on the ice the other night. I think the Jets are going to show some pride in this game and make up for that brutal 7-1 loss with a much better performance here. The Red Wings haven't looked great lately losing 3 games in a row and 5 of their previous 6. They just played a 3 game road trip in California where they got destroyed by the Kings 4-0 and then lost in 2 close games to the Ducks and the Sharks, losing 1 game in a shootout and the other in OT. This is their 1st game back from that and I expect the Red Wings to be sluggish from the travel and the time change. The Jets are going tpo be hungry for a win here and I think they are the much better team anyway. I expect the jets to get back on track in this game against the red Wings who have been slumping lately. I like the Jets to win this game.
T.M. Prediction: 3-1 Jets.
