When it comes to a puck line pick, our choice is the Avalanche to secure the win and cover. Expect the Avalanche to dominate this one with a multi-goal win over the Jets.

If you’re looking at the the over/under line set at 6.5 goals, our prediction is that this game will stay below that threshold, and we strongly suggest placing a bet on the under.
