Kraken vs Jets Prediction

If you’re looking for a straight moneyline bet, then the Jets are the way to go. However, with a payout of -217, you might consider using this bet as a leg of a parlay.

My recommended pick for the puck line is to take the Kraken to cover. Even if the Jets win straight-up, this one should be close throughout and the Kraken should cover the puck line.

With an over/under line sitting at 5.5 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
