Senators at Jets: Projected starting goalies

Matt Murray (1-2-1, 3.79 GAA, .880 SV%) at Connor Hellebuyck (2-1-0, 2.00 GAA, .935 SV%)

Murray got off to a strong start with a 5-3 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs last Friday, but he has since lost two in regulation and one in overtime in his past three starts. He has allowed three or more goals in each outing, too, as the 26-year-old has yet to stand on his head and steal a game. He coughed up four goals on 26 shots Thursday against the Jets in Canada's capital city.

Hellebuyck is back on home ice for the first time since the season-opener against the Calgary Flames. He stopped 23 of the 26 shots he faced in that 4-3 overtime win, and he was the winning goalie in Thursday's game at Ottawa, making 28 saves on 29 shots in the 4-1 victory.

Senators at Jets: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks

Prediction

Jets 4, Senators 2

Money line (ML)

The JETS (-145) are a strong play on home ice, as they have won each of the first two meetings with the Senators. Winnipeg also won its only previous home game this season against Calgary. The Jets won't cost you an arm and a leg, which is nice.

RW Patrik Laine and C Jack Roslovic were reportedly dealt for Columbus Blue Jackets C Pierre-Luc Dubois Saturday, but they weren't going to be in the lineup, anyway. The absences didn't slow the Jets down in the previous two against the Sens.

Against the spread (ATS)

The JETS -1.5 (+180) are a strong value to win by 2 or more goals. They have outscored the Sens 8-4 in the first two games, covering the puck line last time out.

They cashed in both games against the puck line last season vs. OTT.

Over/Under (O/U)

I am not a big fan of a total of 6. I think this one lands right on the number, so AVOID.

The Over/Under split in the first two meetings in Ottawa, and is 2-2 for the Jets overall. The Over/Under is also 2-2 in the first four for the Sens.
