Flyers vs Jets Prediction

To those searching for a pure moneyline wager, the Jets is the clear pick. Still, with a payout of -187, it’s worth thinking about including this bet in a parlay.

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

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
