Avalanche vs Jets Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Jets to come out with a win against the Avalanche while playing at home. Considering the moneyline odds at -110, I’m placing my bet on the Jets to win outright.

For my recommended choice in the puck line, I’m leaning towards the Avalanche to cover. Even if the Jets secure a straight-up win, this game is expected to be tightly contested, and the Avalanche should cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
