Jets vs Canucks 11/19/21 – Exploring pre-game betting odds

On Thursday night, the Winnipeg Jets were handed a shootout loss against the Edmonton Oilers. That game was full of excitement and uneatable heartbreak. The Jets were unable to capitalize on a four-minute power play with captain Connor McDavid in the box.

A heartbreaking loss for sure.  

Looking at the betting landscape, I went 1-for-6 Thursday, which takes my record to 8-for-42 on the season. Let’s see if my luck changes Friday night.
