Senators vs Jets Prediction

If you’re interested in a pure moneyline wager, then the Jets is the preferred option. However, with a payout of -192, it might be worth considering this bet as a component of a larger parlay.

If you’re looking for my recommendation on the puck line, I suggest taking the Senators to cover. Even if the Jets manage to win outright, this game is expected to remain competitive, and the Senators 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.
