When it comes to a moneyline wager, I’m going with the Predators to defeat the Jets while playing at home. Given the current moneyline odds at +100, I’m placing a wager on the Predators to win outright.
Our projections have the Predators pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Predators, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.
With an over/under line sitting at 6 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
