Canadiens vs Jets Best Picks and Prediction

The Canadiens have a very strong recent record against Winnipeg. Five of the previous seven meetings between the two teams ended with a victory for the Habs, including a four-game sweep in the second round of the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

However, this year’s Manitobans have had a strong start to the campaign. They have a four-game winning streak (3-0-1) and are second in the Central Division. The Jets have been excellent to go 6-1-0, having lost just one of their three domestic games so far in 2022–23 (2–1-0).

Pick: Jets -1.5 (+125)
