Ice picks: Thursday’s best NHL bets
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Winnipeg Jets at Minnesota Wild (-120, 5)

If you haven’t noticed, the honeymoon is most certainly over for the Winnipeg Jets.

They got by earlier this season with a great home record while trying to stay competitive on their grueling road schedule that comes with the territory when playing out of the Eastern Conference.

But coach Claude Noel has had just about enough of his team’s inconsistent play.

"Am I discouraged? How do I look?" Noel told reporters after Tuesday’s 3-1 home loss to the New York Islanders. "I'm not real happy. I'm going to wake up and tomorrow's another day. I'll be relentless in my pursuit to get us where we want to go. These are hard moments because you have emotion that you're trying to keep under control."

The Jets wasted a chance to put some distance between them and the Islanders in the standings, so you have to believe they’ll put out a better effort in Minnesota.

Wild captain Mikko Koivu is back, but this looks like another lost year after Minnesota’s strong start.

Pick: Jets


Phoenix Coyotes at Los Angeles Kings (-135, 5)

Heading into Wednesday’s action, the eighth-place Coyotes trailed the Los Angeles Kings by two points in the Western Conference, while Calgary, Colorado and Dallas were on the outside of the playoff picture looking in.

This is going to be a race that could easily come down to the last day of the season and you can expect the Coyotes and Kings to be in the middle of it.

No matter how it shakes down in the end, the Coyotes are the value bet Thursday. They limited the high-powered Canucks to just 22 shots on goal in a 2-1 shutout loss the last time they took the ice and have given up two or fewer goals in six of their last eight – winning six times over that stretch.

"We came up a point short," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett told reporters about the loss to Vancouver. "It was a solid road game. We didn't give up a ton of chances. We hung around the game, we just didn't get the two points. We have to be solid if we want to win, and tonight we were solid."

After backup Jason LaBarbera kept the Coyotes in the game versus the Canucks, expect starter Mike Smith to be back in the cage against Los Angeles.

Pick: Coyotes
