Detroit Red Wings vs Winnipeg Jets predictions

Face-off: 1930 ET, 13/01/2022

Venue: Little Caesars Arena

Detroit’s last couple of matches have gone to overtime and supporters could well be in for another late night when they entertain Winnipeg.

The Red Wings and the Jets are level on points just below halfway in the overall table, albeit with the hosts having played four games more.

Punters can get 4.1 for a draw at the end of regular time at Little Caesars Arena and that kicks off our Detroit Red Wings vs Winnipeg Jets predictions.

Detroit Red Wings Odds

Detroit tend to falter when facing elite-level opponents but can usually be relied upon to hold their own against teams around them or further down the ratings.

The Red Wings were only shaded 4-3 in a shootout at 12th-placed Anaheim and went down 3-2 in overtime when visiting San Jose in 15th.

Alex Nedeljkovic made 37 saves against the Sharks and is enjoying a solid campaign.

“He was great for us,” said teammate Nick Leddy. “All year he’s been giving us games. It’s too bad we couldn’t get that extra point.”

Tyler Bertuzzi has shone of late with five goals in three matches to edge ahead of Dylan Larkin in the scoring charts.

It also has to be noted that Detroit have fared much better at home than on the road, going 12-5-2 at this venue compared to 4-11-3 on their travels.

Looking at the 2.2.

Winnipeg Jets Odds

Winnipeg began 2022 in cracking fashion via a 5-4 overtime victory at Vegas and duly accounted for struggling Arizona with a 3-1 road win.

However, the Jets were well and truly grounded when thrashed 7-1 at Colorado last time out and have had Covid issues.

Two home games were postponed due to attendance restrictions, while a number of players have been sidelined.

Dylan DeMelo, Jansen Harkins, Nikolaj Ehlers, Nathan Beaulieu and Logan Stanley feature among them.

Head coach Dave Lowry could have some back but it is not the ideal preparation.

He declared: “You’d like to have your healthy line-up, but we knew we were going to be presented with this.”

A couple of exciting youngsters have been called up from the Taxi Squad and it remains to be seen whether Winnipeg are rusty or refreshed.

We just fear it will be the former and will go with 4.75 for a home win and both teams to score at least twice to finish off our NHL predictions.
