Jets live betting odds

The betting doesn’t have to end once the Jets game gets underway. Thanks to the wonders of live betting, you can wager along in real-time as the action develops on the ice. Also known as in-play or in-game, this style of betting has grown to become one of the fastest-growing segments of the sports betting industry.

Once the game gets started, online sportsbooks post live betting odds. It’s a fast-moving market for which the offerings will vary based on what’s happening, but here are a few examples of what Jets betting odds you’ll see.

  • First team to score – Winnipeg Jets or Vancouver Canucks?
  • What will be the result of this power play – Goal or Penalty Kill?
  • Will Pierre-Luc Dubois record a point in period two – Yes/No?

You’ll also find updated lines for all of the main pregame bets with the Jets betting lines adjusted for the situation at hand. You can use live betting to hedge your initial positions, or even double down if you like what you see. The fastest game on ice can be a thrill a minute, and that’s even more the case when you have live betting at your disposal.

How to read Jets betting lines

Beyond live betting, there are plenty of other popular ways to wager on the NHL. At the top of the list are the three main game bets. The average listing at a sportsbook will look like this.

  • Toronto Maple Leafs  +110                +1.5 (-125)      O 5.5 (-110)
  • Winnipeg Jets            -120                 -1.5 (+105)      U 5.5 (-110)

Right next to the two team names are the hockey odds and lines for the moneyline, puck line, and totals. Here’s how the three bets work.

  • Moneyline: Choose which side you think will win. Favourites have negative odds, while the numbers are positive for underdogs.
  • Puck line: Take the favourite minus the goals or go with the dog plus the line. The side you choose has to cover the puck line for the bet to be a winner.
  • Totals: Sportsbooks set an estimate for the total number of goals scored in the game. Bettors can then wager on the Over or Under for that amount.

All three of the main pregame bets will attract plenty of action. If you’d like to expand your horizons, then no worries. There are several other popular ways to wager on the NHL.

#1 Jets betting tip

There are plenty of theories about what to do and what not to do with NHL betting, but there are also several facets of the game that get completely overlooked. That’s not the worst news for bettors who learn to uncover the nuggets and use them to their advantage. At the top of the list is a single factor that can change the complexion of a game or even a season:

1. Momentum

When things are clicking on the ice, a buzz quickly develops throughout the arena. Passes become crisper, shots have that much more zip on them, and line changes happen that much quicker. Teams that take control of the momentum of a game can rally from behind or pad the lead depending on the situation at hand.

From a betting perspective, momentum also plays a big part. Quite simply, a team that’s rolling along and racking up the points could be in line to continue doing so. On the other hand, those who are struggling and can’t seem to get on their way could remain on a wayward path until the club as a whole finally snaps out of it.

The simplest way to use momentum to your advantage is by comparing team records over the last 5-10 games. While there are no fail-safe plans when it comes to betting, this is a solid tool to add to the belt.

Jets Vegas odds vs. online odds

It wasn’t too long ago that the go-to spot for the best sports betting odds was in Las Vegas. While the numbers coming out of Sin City are still top-notch, the landscape has shifted tremendously in recent years. Legal sports betting is now available in more areas, and the operators in those locales are on point with the numbers as well.

When comparing the numbers at online and mobile sportsbooks versus the data from Vegas, you’re bound to find some differences. Market action and betting handle make it virtually impossible for all numbers to be the same. That said, here’s what we can tell you: the numbers that you’ll find here at home stack up quite well with what comes out of Vegas.

Jets schedule

While the past two seasons have seen different formats used, the standard for the NHL schedule remains the same. Each team plays an 82-game regular-season schedule with the top eight teams in each conference qualifying for the postseason at its conclusion. For the Jets, that translates into a scheduling formula that works like this.

  • 26 games vs. teams from division
  • 24 games vs. teams from other divisions in conference
  • 32 games vs. teams from the opposite conference

The balanced schedule allows fans to see all of the league’s stars at least a couple of times per season. For Winnipeg, conference and division play has been quite competitive through the years, which translates into plenty of rivalry games to circle on the calendar once the NHL schedule is officially unveiled.

Jets coach/coaching staff

  • Associate coach: Jamie Kompon
  • Assistant coach: Dave Lowry
  • Assistant coach: Charlie Huddy
  • Assistant coach: Wade Flaherty
  • Video & analytics coach: Matt Prefontaine

Past Jets coaches

During the Noel era in Winnipeg, the Jets failed to qualify for the postseason. They’ve managed to do so four times since Maurice took over, making it to the Western Conference finals in 2018 before falling to the Vegas Golden Knights.

The previous incarnation of the Jets spanned from 1972-96 in the WHA and NHL. Here’s a look back at the longest-tenured coaches over that timeframe and their overall records while leading the team.

Jets play-by-play & radio

Regional television broadcasts of Jets games can be found on either TSN or Sportsnet. When the games are on TSN3, Dennis Beyack handles the primary play-by-play call with either Ray Ferraro or Kevin Sawyer on board for colour commentary. Rinkside reporting duties are handled by Sara Olesky for those telecasts.

On the radio side, CJOB Global News Radio 680 and CJKR-FM Power 97 serve as the flagship stations for Jets games. A simulcast feed of the telecast can also be found on a handful of other AM and FM stations in the area. The tag-team duo of Paul Edmonds and Mitch Thomas handle the call for radio.

Where to watch or stream Jets games online free

The vast majority of Jets games are found on either TSN3 or Sportsnet. Both networks provide an online feed of the broadcasts, but please note that valid sign-in credentials from your provider may be required.

There’s also the option of NHL.tv, a subscription service that provides coverage of all league games. However, Winnipeg games can be subject to blackout on this option for those who reside in the team’s ‘home area.’

On sports betting platforms, FanDuel recently made headlines by becoming the first sportsbook to offer streams of NHL games. It’s only available in markets in which FanDuel Sportsbook has officially launched, but it’s nonetheless an interesting development that bears watching.

What is the Jets logo, mascot, jersey?

The original Jets franchise logo featured the team name and city in a circular logo with notes of a hockey stick and a jet built-in. The current squad’s colours are blue, red, silver, and white. The primary logo is a jet over a leaf symbol to represent the home country with a circular border to blend it all in.

The team also has an alternate jersey that simply spells out the team name in cursive. Mick E. Moose is the current team mascot, while the original fan favourite filling that role was named Benny. He was named in honour of the team’s first owner, Ben Hatskin, while also giving a nod to the popular Elton John song “Bennie and the Jets.”

Jets franchise by the numbers

As one of seven NHL franchises that make their home in Canada, the Jets have an incredibly loyal and passionate following. The team also has a rather unique history attached. The original incarnation of the franchise was born in the WHA before joining the NHL.

Hearts were broken across Manitoba when the team shipped off for Phoenix, but another relocation effort righted the wrong in 2011 when the team from Atlanta moved to Winnipeg to become the Jets. Here are some of the more notable facts and figures about the club.

  • Franchise value: According to the latest NHL team franchise valuations from Forbes, the Jets are currently valued at $405 million. That places them in 27th place out of 32 current NHL squads. The Arizona Coyotes bring up the rear at $285 million, while the New York Rangers top the charts at $1.65 billion.
  • 2011 purchase price: In 2011, True North Sports & Entertainment reached an agreement to purchase the struggling Atlanta Thrashers for a reported $170 million. The team was relocated to Winnipeg and rechristened as the Jets.
  • Stanley Cup Playoff appearances: Since returning to Winnipeg in 2011, the Jets have made it to the Stanley Cup Playoffs four times. During the original NHL run of the Jets from 1979-96, the club qualified for the postseason 11 times.
  • Biggest playoff accomplishment: The first iteration of the Jets made it to the division finals twice, losing to the Edmonton Oilers in four games both times. For the other nine playoff appearances, the team lost in the opening round each time. The current Jets have advanced to the postseason four times. The 2017-18 club had the most memorable run, making it to the Western Conference finals before losing to the Vegas Golden Knights in five games.
  • Retired numbers: The team has retired a total of three numbers to date.
    • 9 – Bobby Hull
    • 10 – Dale Hawerchuk
    • 25 – Thomas Steen
  • Jets hall-of-fame: The Jets have also established a team hall-of-fame to honour franchise legends.
    • Lars-Erik Sjoberg, D
    • Randy Carlyle, D
    • Bobby Hull, LW
    • Dale Hawerchuk, C
    • Ab McDonald, LW
    • Ulf Nilsson, C
    • Anders Hedberg, RW
    • Thomas Steen, C
  • Longest sellout streak: From the return of the Jets to Winnipeg in 2011 through the beginning of the 2019 campaign, the club sold out an impressive 332 straight times.
  • Best offensive performance in Jets history: Teemu Selanne, the 10th overall pick in the 1988 NHL Draft, made his debut for the Jets in the 1992-93 season. The right wing proceeded to set the league on fire, racking up a staggering 76 goals and 56 assists. Selanne capped off the year by winning the Calder Memorial Trophy as the league’s top rookie.
  • How did the Jets do when they were the Atlanta Thrashers? In short, not very good at all. Over the course of 11 seasons, the team made it to the postseason just a single time, losing in four straight games in the Conference Quarterfinals to the New York Rangers in 2006-07. While the club could never quite get it together, they did boast some impressive talent at times, including Ilya Kovalchuk.
