Winnipeg Jets vs Carolina Hurricanes predictions

Face-off: 2000 ET, 07/12/2021

Venue: Canada Life Centre

Winnipeg and Carolina are both coming off high-scoring victories but we feel the Jets showed the stronger form last time out.

They upset high-flying Toronto in fine fashion, whereas the Hurricanes merely did what was expected versus a struggling Buffalo outfit.

We’ve got more confidence in the hosts continuing on an upward curve and 1.91 for them to win on the money line heads our Winnipeg Jets vs Carolina Hurricanes predictions.

Winnipeg Jets Odds

Winnipeg have put a frustrating spell behind them and followed up an 8-4 romp against New Jersey by seeing off the Maple Leafs 6-3.

The Jets improved to 9-3-1 at home with those triumphs, having also secured a recent 4-2 success away to Pacific Division leaders Calgary.

Blake Wheeler bagged a brace of assists as he celebrated his 1,000th NHL appearance against Toronto.

He said: “I think we’re kind of in a transition from what gave us a lot of success over the years and now trying to figure out a new way to have success.

“It’s going to look a little bit different and take some time to find our chemistry but it’s started coming.

“I think the best is yet to come. I feel that way about our group and that’s where my focus is on, just having a blast with this team.”

Looking at the NHL odds for this game, we like 3.4 for the Jets to prevail and over 5.5 goals.

Carolina Hurricanes Odds

Carolina are handily placed in the Metropolitan Division after brushing aside the Sabres 6-2 at PNC Arena.

Teuvo Teravainen netted twice while Sebastian Aho, Vincent Trocheck and Nino Niederreiter all had three-point matches.

Head coach Rod Brind’Amour wasn’t exactly in a bullish mood afterwards, though.

“It wasn’t a great game, we all know that, but it was a good win,” he commented.

“With all the guys gutting it out, that’s what I’m taking from this game. Hopefully, we can start a little fresher on Tuesday.”

That result ended a three-game skid and the Hurricanes had only beaten an out-of-sorts Philadelphia side in six previous outings.

Carolina need to do more to earn our respect and 3.25 for Winnipeg to oblige by more than 1.5 goals completes the NHL predictions here.
