This Jets vs Canadiens game is truly a sports bettor’s dream. There are so many ways to bet this game, and the best part is the lines are not very steep. The one certainty tonight should be goals scored, and lots of them. Everything is lining up perfectly. Even with their starting goalies in net, neither of these teams are great defensively. The Jets are on the second night of a back-to-back, and the Canadiens give up the second-most goals per game in the NHL.
Montreal has been a slave to the over this season, hitting at nearly a 60% rate. Despite their inability to score goals at the beginning of the season, the offense has figured itself out in recent months, led by the return of Cole Caufield. The point machine out of Wisconsin struggled at the beginning of the season, prompting a stint in the AHL. Since returning to the Canadiens full-time, Caufield has been lights out and carries a four-game goal streak into this home contest against Winnipeg.

Jets vs Canadiens Prediction
There is no reason to believe this Jets vs Canadiens game will be anything but a goal show. Both these teams hit the over at among the NHL’s highest rates and are playing backup goaltenders. Also, both teams have been part of some absolute barn-burners recently, with a combined six games resulting in nine goals or more in the last 10 days alone.
The Jets have been playing some miserable hockey lately, and have less than a 1% chance to make the playoffs. The Canadiens, on the other hand, have known essentially all season long they have no chance to make the playoffs, and are just trying to put their best product on the ice to improve team chemistry and build some momentum and morale moving into the offseason.
We expect a ton of goals, so taking the over is no question here. We also like the Canadiens to win, and blow past their team total in the process. In order to hit these, Caufield will need to be involved in a big way, so do not hesitate to lay the juice on his point and shots on goal props.
This game is likely to start quick, so we will be taking the over in first period goals as well.
Our NHL betting Jets vs Canadiens prediction tonight will be Canadiens Money Line at BetUS.
