The Vancouver Canucks (21-26-3) play the second of a two-game set with the Winnipeg Jets (28-23-3) Tuesday. Puck drop is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET at Bell MTS Place. Below, we analyze the Canucks-Jets odds and lines, with NHL picks and predictions.

The Canucks are coming off a 3-1 win over the Jets on Monday night. Vancouver is already eliminated from the playoff picture, but they can still have an impact on the seeding.

The Jets are still in the mix for third place in the North Division, and they could end up with a playoff series against the Edmonton Oilers or the Toronto Maple Leafs depending on their final two regular-season games.

Canucks at Jets: Odds, lines, predictions and picks


Jets 4, Canucks 2

Money line (ML)

The JETS (-165) are a little on the expensive side, but they have something to play for still, albeit simple seeding.

The Canucks (+140) are eliminated, so it remains to be seen what their motivation will be. It was pretty good on Monday, that’s for sure.

Vancouver is also 3-10 in the past 13 trips to Winnipeg, and 7-20 in the previous 27 meetings overall.

Against the spread (ATS)

The JETS -1.5 (+145) are worth a roll of the dice on the puck line, as they look to rebound after a disappointing 3-1 loss at home on Monday.

Winnipeg has won just twice across the past 11 games, but both of those wins at least covered the puck line.

And four of their past five wins since April 8 have also been by two or more goals, so if you like Winnipeg to win, you should like them on the puck line.

Over/Under (O/U)

OVER 5.5 (-120) is the lean here.

The Over is 3-1-1 in Vancouver’s past five games overall, while going 3-1-1 across its past five on the road, too. The Over is 12-4-2 for the Jets in the past 18 when working on no rest.
