    Bodog has the Leafs to win at 7-1, with the Jets at 17-2 tied with the Bolts.

    LOL I didn't say I liked or respected him. Just reporting the facts.

    Bodog is stupid (pandering to Leafs Nation). Toronto wasted millions on a player that replicates a strength. So, instead of spending money on D and G (which they need to advance), they are taking away ice time from their young stars, and not adding any value to their team.

    They aren't winning anything unless they trade some forward skill for D and G, and that' stupid too because they will have to trade young cost controlled stars for an older, expensive guy. Just idiotic

    Jinxes, much like unicorns and witches on brooms do not exist.

    It's great to see this team getting the recognition it deserves but like Wheeler said last season "Pump The Brakes" as we are in a very difficult division and it's going to be a dog fight. I have my optimism of course because we have a strong team top to bottom but again this league is difficult to win in, the boys are going to need to bring their A game every night. Go Jets Go!

    Eh, if I had to guess, it's more Leafs Nation jamming money down and the line shortening to reflect it. Probably why the line has shortened significantly on Winnipeg as well since the summer. Except in our case, it's people betting smartly :P

    Pump the brakes is right. Lots to be excited about for sure BUT lots to prove still, too. Hellebucky has to repeat his performance from last year, Trouba and company have to continue the stellar defense, team has to avoid major injuries, Little or Roslovic have to perform as legit top 2 C's...

    I am a Jets fan to the end. I expect the worst. Not too sure how to process a winning team other than just enjoy. Ive never seen a Jets team considered a favorite for anything. In my mind we are the perennial underdog.

    That’s a great explanation of the Tavares acquisition.

    Not an expert on gambling, but I think Books will overestimate the odds on a team that will attract a lot of money in order to hedge. Also, they move the odds down as Leaf money is laid down. So I would presume that their true odds are less than Wpg/TB.

    I threw the Jinx word out, but I actually agree with you. Same category as 'puck luck' or 'hot goaltender'. How is 'hot goaltender ' any different than 'cold shooters' - it's not. Just words to explain something not easily understood at first glance.

    That is correct. In fact, that was one of the things that numerous book operators said about action on the Knights, that they were the most inelastic lines they'd ever seen. "We kept shortening the odds and the money just kept pouring in. It never stopped".

    So yeah, when in doubt, don't bet on trendy teams for that reason :P

    Nothing would make me happier. Although let's not forget that this team walked through an awful MN team and then a .890 goaltender. That's all.

    What gets me about that prediction is that they have both Calgary and Edmonton making the playoffs - and Edmonton as a cross-over. Which means only 3 teams from the Central. Which sounds pretty damn unlikely if you ask me.

    Although a Winnipeg-Edmonton first round match-up would be pretty epic. I wonder if I'd make it out of that series alive, what with being an obnoxious Jets fan living in Edmonton...

    A good cover story for The Sporting News might be who they think TSN will predict to be the Cup winners a couple of years down the road, I'd buy that magazine for sure.

    In any case this is a season to be really excited about, right???

    Speaking of season previews, did the NHL Network deliberately miss the Jets in their Central Division preview?
