May 5, 9:30 PM EDT

Betting Odds

Winnipeg +140/Nashville -160

This is another series that has gone back and worth so far between two closely-matched Central Division foes. The Jets took a 2-1 series lead into Thursday’s home game against Nashville, but they were on the wrong end of a 2-1 loss as -140 favorites. The total stayed UNDER six goals after going well OVER the closing total line in high-scoring contests the last two games. Before Thursday, Winnipeg had scored a combined 20 goals in its previous four outings. The second-highest scoring team in the league in the regular season has gotten a significant effort from Mark Scheifele (8 goals, four assists) in the playoffs.

Winnipeg at Nashville Prediction 05/05/2018

Each team in this series has posted a win at home and a win on the road in another matchup that should go the distance. While my lean for Saturday night in Game 5 is towards Nashville as the home favorite, I see both teams lighting up the scoreboard enough times to take this game OVER another six-goal line.
