Why New York Islanders are a good bet to win at +130?
Although the last time the Islanders faced the Jets they lost 1-3, NYI heads to Winnipeg with a very good 21-14-2-1 away record. The Islanders are also 2-1 on the moneyline in their last 3.
They did lose to Columbus 0-4 in their last game, but that’s probably not an issue. If anything, New York has a chance to bounce back with a big win on Thursday night. Beating Winnipeg’s tough, but NYI should play hard and have a shot to pull off the upset.

Why Winnipeg Jets are a good bet to win at -149?
Winnipeg’s getting themselves into a playoff mindset. Even though the Jets only have a 2 point lead over Nashville, and a 4 point lead over St. Louis, in the Central Division, the Jets are already thinking playoffs.
How else to explain a 5-2 straight up record in their last 7? The Jets should jump all over the Islander early in this match. Then, they’ll cruise to a victory.

Islanders vs Jets Final NHL Betting Analysis
Although the Jets are favored and usually play well at home, a couple of trends point to the Islanders pulling off the upset. NYI is not only 8-1 in their last 9 versus the Central Division, they’ve also gone 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Winnipeg.
Sometimes, a team just has their opponent’s number. Even though the Jets beat the Islanders by 2 in the last head-to-head, NYI has a chance to turn that around on Thursday night. The Islanders are an attractive play at the odds. They’re worth backing.NHL Free Pick: NY Islanders +130
