Avalanche vs Jets Prediction

If you’re looking for a moneyline pick, my choice is the Avalanche to take down the Jets on the road. With the moneyline currently at -120, I’m placing my bet on the Avalanche straight-up.

If you’re looking for a puck line bet, I’d suggest going with the Jets to cover. Even in the event of a Avalanche victory, this game is expected to be closely fought, and the Jets should cover the puck line.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 6.5 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
