NHL Free Pick.

(James P. McCoy/Buffalo News)

NHL | Buffalo Sabres ( 29-28-8) Vs Winnipeg Jets (33-28-6) 8PM Streaming on TSN3

The Jets have lost 4 of their last 5 games plus are dealing with a plethora of injuries including Patrik Laine. Indeed Winnipeg is loaded with injuries and now one of their best players, Laine, has been downgraded to out for this game due to a foot injury.

That is why my play has been made there is just too much value to pass up on here as the Jets are really squeezing the sticks too tight right now and it is going to be hard to respond in this spot considering all their injuries. The Sabres are worthy of a significant investment here as a sizable underdog. Buffalo has struggled on this road trip but the first 3 games were all out west.

The finale of this 4-game trip comes against a Jets team whom the Sabres defeated as part of a 5-1 stretch prior to this tough road trip Buffalo has endured. Though still on the road, the Sabres at least are back much closer to home and, not only did they win their last home game against the Jets, they also beat them the last time they faced them at Winnipeg. The Sabres, when entering a game on a losing streak of 3 or more games, have won 4 of 5. Make that 5 of 6 after this one goes into the books! Free Pick on BUFFALO +142 At 5dimes
