Detroit Red Wings vs Winnipeg Jets 3/31/2023 Expert Picks, Odds and Analysis

In Winnipeg’s Canada Life Centre, the Red Wings, led by Dylan Larkin, will clash with the Jets, led by Kyle Connor, on Friday evening. After defeating the Carolina Hurricanes in their most recent home game yesterday, the Red Wings enter this match-up with a record of 33-32-9. Detroit has won three of its last five games, including a two-game winning streak. Defenseman Jake Walman and center Dylan Larkin each scored one goal to lead Detroit’s offense in their victory over Carolina, while goalie Alex Nedeljkovic stopped 31 shots, resulting in a save percentage of .939.

At the beginning of the season, the Detroit Red Wings had high hopes of being a playoff team, but they were unable to maintain their early-season success. Detroit experienced several losing streaks, including a six-game losing streak, and is now back to where they were last season. Despite this, center Dylan Larkin continues to be a workhorse for Detroit, leading the team in almost all categories with 28 goals, 44 assists, and 72 points in 73 games played.     

  • The total went OVER in 10 of Detroit’s last 14 games on the road against Winnipeg.
  • The Detroit Red Wings are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games with a team in the West.
  • The Red Wings are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games with a rival in the Central Division.

Detroit Red Wings vs Winnipeg Jets 3/31/2023 Expert Picks, Odds and Analysis

The Winnipeg Jets will return to the Canada Life Centre with hopes of ending their two-game losing streak as they face off against the visiting Detroit Red Wings. Winnipeg, currently 41-31-3, comes into this inter-division matchup following a shutout loss to the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday during their recent road trip. The Jets have been struggling since the all-star break and will need to make some significant changes to get back on track. In Tuesday’s loss, the Jets made 41 attempted shots, 15 hits, and won 29 face-offs, but still couldn’t manage to score any goals.

The Jets had a promising start to the season, leading the Central Division for a considerable time, but have been unable to maintain their momentum. As a result, they now sit in the last wildcard spot in the Western Conference, with the Calgary Flames and Nashville Predators trailing them by just 2 and 3 points, respectively. Winnipeg has plenty of talent and skill, but they lack organization, which has been a significant factor in their struggles.       

  • The total went OVER in 10 of Winnipeg’s last 14 games at home against Detroit.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 8 of the Jets’ last 11 games with a team in the East.
  • The Winnipeg Jets are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games when playing as the favorite.

Detroit Red Wings vs. Winnipeg Jets. The NHL Pick for this contest is Winnipeg -225.
