Jets vs Ducks Prediction

For a moneyline bet, I’m backing the Ducks to secure a victory over the Jets at home. With the moneyline currently set at +159, I’m locking in my bet on the Ducks straight-up.

Our projections have the Ducks pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Ducks, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
