Ducks vs Jets Prediction

When thinking about a moneyline wager in this game, our evaluation indicates that the Jets will take down the Ducks. Nonetheless, given the current odds of -391, I’d recommend getting bet down on the puck line instead, as our predictions point to the Jets winning by more than one goal.

For a puck line pick, we are going with the Jets to win and cover. Look for the Jets to win this one by multiple goals over the Ducks.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 5.5 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
