Jets vs Stars Prediction

When it comes to a moneyline wager, I’m going with the Stars to defeat the Jets while playing at home. Given the current moneyline odds at -145, I’m placing a wager on the Stars to win outright.

For a puck line prediction, our preference is the Stars to secure a win and cover. Anticipate the Stars to win this one by multiple goals over the Jets.

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.
