Two playoff-bound teams face off as the Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets collide. It is time to continue our NHL odds series with a Canucks-Jets prediction, pick, and how-to-watch.

The Canucks enter the game sitting at 50-22-9, which is good for the top spot in the Pacific Division. They will be opening the first round against a Wild Card team, but there is a question as to who it will be. They could still take the top spot in the West with a Dallas Stars loss on Wednesday, combined with a ring from the Canucks. This would give them a matchup with the Kings or Golden Knights. If not, they will be facing the Nashville Predators in the first round.

The Jets are also heading to the playoffs. They will be at home in the first round and be facing the Colorado Avalanche. The Jets went 51-24-6 on the year, which got them 108 points and a second-place finish in the Central Division.

Final Canucks-Jets Prediction & Pick

It looks as if the Canucks are going to be settling for the second seed in the west. This could change before game time, but they are not expected to start Thatcher Demko. If the Stars lose on Wednesday, they could change that. Still, with that, this could be a low-scoring game. Neither team has a lot to play for in this one, so take the under.
