Chicago Blackhawks vs Winnipeg Jets 02/16/2020 – Just a week ago, the Blackhawks and the Jets crossed paths in a Central Division showdown. They will be back in the same place Sunday night for a restart of a match easily prevailed in by the home team. The odds set for this game are pretty much as it was seven days ago as the updated NHL Vegas Odds are going with Winnipeg to win at -145 while Chicago will try to bank on last night’s explosion in Calgary to defy a +125 match-winner price.

Chicago Blackhawks vs Winnipeg Jets 02/16/2020 Betting Odds:
They are coming off an 8-4 drubbing of the Flames last night on the road, snapping a five-game slide with a chance to score back-to-back wins on Sunday before heading back home in Chicago. Their goal total in Calgary is their highest of a season as Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews each wore their big boy pants to steer Chicago Blackhawks with three points, respectively. They were out of sorts on Feb. 9, but they look more than ready to face the Jets this time for their fifth and last tussle of the season.
Players to watch: Patrick Kane (GP 58, G 26, A 46, PTS 62), Jonathan Toews (GP 58, G 16, A 33, PTS 49), Dominik Kubalik (GP 56, G 23, A 12, PTS 35).
The Jets announced Saturday a piece of horrible news about Bryan Little missing the rest of the season as he is set to do under the knife to patch up a perforated eardrum which he suffered on Nov. 5. Now at the tail end of a six-game homestand, Winnipeg still looks to gain more traction after a relatively topsy-turvy last four games where they dropped its last two after winning the first two assignments. The Jets struggle to take advantage of the familiarity on home ice as their back-to-back losses put their record inside Bell MTS Place at 14-14-3.
Players to watch: Mark Scheifele (GP 59, G 23, A 36, PTS 59), Kyle Connor (GP 59, G 29, A 31, PTS 60), Patrik Laine (GP 57, G 24, A 29, PTS 53).
Chicago Blackhawks vs Winnipeg Jets Betting Predictions
Blackhawks are 6-1 in their last 7 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game.
Jets are 8-3 in their last 11 games as a home favorite.
Blackhawks vs Jets Betting Picks
The Jets are going to spike the Blackhawks’ guns as the visitors try to cap their road trip with two victories. It’s not happening in Winnipeg as the home team will thwart any attempt of revenge from last week’s masterful win and serve the Blackhawks another L to bring back in Chicago.
Score Prediction: Blackhawks 3, Jets 4.
