The Vegas Golden Knights and Winnipeg Jets and are set to play a matinee matchup for Game 3 of their opening round series.
The Jets upset the Golden Knights in Game 1, but Vegas rebounded in Game 2. Now, the series heads up North to Winnipeg for a pivotal Game 3.
Let’s dive into the odds and then I’ll give you my best bet.
Golden Knights vs. Jets odds, puck line, and total
Golden Knights vs. Jets prediction and pick
The Jets have been the better team through the first two games of the series, so I have no problem backing them at a near pick’em price at home in Game 3.
When you look at their expected goals during 5-on-5 play, the Jets have the advantage at 2.65 compared to the Jets at 2.53. They’re also averaging slightly more high-danger scoring chances per 60 minutes at 10.65 compared to 10.03 for the Golden Knights.
Now, with the series heading back to Canada, the Jets will have home ice advantage and be able to use it to their full advantage.
I’ll back the Jets as slight home favorites this afternoon.
