Flames vs Jets Prediction

For a moneyline bet, I’m backing the Flames to secure a victory over the Jets on the road. With the moneyline currently set at +168, I’m locking in my bet on the Flames straight-up.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Flames winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Flames straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet on them to cover the puck line.

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
