Oilers vs Jets Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Jets to come out with a win against the Oilers while playing at home. Considering the moneyline odds at -101, I’m placing my bet on the Jets to win outright.

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