Winnipeg Jets vs. Montreal Canadiens: which team to bet on?
Winnipeg vs. Montreal: NHL match prediction (March 16, 2021)
On March 16, a meeting between "Winnipeg" and "Montreal" will take place, for which we will make a prediction with a good coefficient. Will the hosts be able to recover from the crushing defeat?
"Winnipeg" is one of the top contenders for the playoffs this season and is currently in the third position with 36 points. Recently, however, the team has begun to alternate victories with defeats and cannot enter the winning series in any way. Note that they lost to "Montreal" (1:7), and then fought three times with "Toronto" on the road.
Twice the "Air Army" defeated "Leafs" with a score of 4:3 and 5:2, respectively, and lost to an opponent in the only match in overtime - 3:4. Normally, the “Jets” play quite effectively and consistently score three goals per game. On the home ice, they managed to play 14 matches and lost only four of them in regulation time.
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
"Montreal" is in the fourth position of the standings and scored 31 points. The team started this season successfully and was considered one of the leaders of the division, but from mid-February, it began to show fairly weak results and lost too often. This was the reason to change the head coach to Dominique Ducharme.
However, of course, the specialist will need a lot of time to rebuild the team's game and start producing results. Note that after the victory over "Vancouver" (5:1), the "Tricolors" lost twice away to "Calgary" with a score of 1:2 and 1:3, respectively, with only two goals scored.
As a rule, the matches between these teams are quite spectacular and are played with a large number of scored goals. However, "Winnipeg" is now definitely in better shape than "Montreal", which recently replaced their coach. We think that the "Jets" will take advantage of the problems of the "Tricolors" and get another victory for themselves, especially since they are uncompromising on their ice.
Our prediction is a "total over 5.5 goals" with odds of 1.89 on 1xbet.
