Winnipeg Jets vs Edmonton Oilers 3/3/2023 Picks, Previews and Predictions

The NHL inter-division challenge continues this week as the Winnipeg Jets face off against the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta. The Jets will enter this match following a devastating shootout loss to the LA Kings on Tuesday, resulting in a final score of 5-6. Despite the setback, the Jets have shown significant improvement from last season, securing the final wildcard slot in the Western Conference with a 35-24-2 record. Josh Morrissey, the talented defenseman, played a vital role in Tuesday’s match, scoring two goals with two assists. Kevin Stenlund also stood out with two goals, earning the Stars of the Game award in the tough loss.

Although the Jets started strong in Tuesday’s game, with Morrissey netting the first two goals, they were unable to hold on to their lead. After Stenlund scored two consecutive goals, the LA Kings managed to score two in the final period, pushing the game into overtime. The Kings’ Adrian Kempe ultimately sealed the victory with a wrist shot, leaving the Jets to lick their wounds after a hard-fought battle. As they prepare to face the Oilers on Friday, the Jets will need to tighten up their defense to avoid similar heartbreaking losses in the future.

The totals went UNDER in 14 of Winnipeg’s last 20 games. The Jets are 1-6 straight up in their last 7 outings. Winnipeg is 6-2 SU in its last 8 matches versus Edmonton while the totals stayed UNDER in 4 of the Jets’ last 5 road contests.

The Edmonton Oilers will aim for their second straight victory as they host the Winnipeg Jets in an inter-division matchup on Friday night. Fresh off a commanding 5-2 home win against the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Oilers have won three of their last five games and currently boast an impressive 33-21-8 overall record with 74 points. They are just four points behind the first-place Vegas Golden Knights in the Pacific Division and have a 15-12-5 home record after the win. The Stars of the Game in the Maple Leafs victory were Center Connor McDavid, who contributed two goals and one assist, Center Klim Kostin, who added a goal and an assist, and Center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who chipped in with an assist.

In addition to the team’s success, McDavid has been making NHL history by becoming only the third player to score multiple goals in five consecutive games. McDavid’s exceptional performance has solidified his status as one of the most impressive players in the hockey world, having amassed 52 goals, 66 assists, and 118 points for the Oilers in just 62 games this season. His teammate Leon Draisaitl is a distant second with 28 points behind. As the Oilers prepare to face the Jets, they will undoubtedly rely on McDavid’s exceptional skill and form to continue their winning streak. 

The totals went OVER in 14 of the Oilers’ last 20 matches. Edmonton is 3-6 straight up in its last 9 games. The totals remained UNDER in 6 of the Oilers’ last 9 outings versus Winnipeg and also stayed UNDER in 6 of Edmonton’s last 7 contests at home against the Jets.  

Winnipeg Jets vs. Edmonton Oilers. The NHL Pick for this contest is Edmonton -163.
