Winnipeg Jets vs. Montreal Canadiens: Will the Canadiens be stronger again?
Winnipeg vs. Montreal: NHL match prediction (March 18, 2021)
"Winnipeg" will host a fight against "Montreal" on March 18, and our experts will make an accurate prediction of the outcome and total of this match.
"Winnipeg" took the second position in the standings with a total of 36 points. Recently, the team has been showing unstable results and alternating between victories and defeats. The "Jets" have held a tough streak against "Toronto", but have won two out of three matches against the "Leafs".
Perhaps the "Air Army" simply did not have time to reorganize and properly prepare for playing against "Montreal", which is why they lost with a score of 2:4. Note that Paul Maurice's wards scored two goals in the majority, but they did not manage to score in equal squads, although there were plenty of chances.

"Montreal Canadiens" is in fourth place in the Northern Division with 33 points. The team also cannot be proud of stability, as it rarely wins. Before the meeting with "Winnipeg", the "Tricolors" had two unsuccessful games on the road against "Calgary", in which they lost 1:2 and 1:3, respectively.
At the same time, Dominique Ducharme's guys play well this season at a visit, as in regulation time they lost only three fights out of 17, differing on average by more than three goals per game. Perhaps soon we will see the results of the work of the new head coach.
"Winnipeg", most likely, did not have time to rebuild after a long series of matches with "Toronto", which is why they were defeated in the previous fight. Despite this, the "Jets" were active and often threatened the opponents' goal. Knowing that "Montreal" has been unstable lately, we suggest betting on the hosts.
We will also consider the option with a bet on the total. The "Air Army" prefers to play in attack, which is why most of the matches with their participation are effective. And the "Tricolors" is far from the perfect defense.
Our bet is a victory for "Winnipeg" with odds of 2.69 on 1xbet.
