Jets vs. Bruins Prediction

I’m on the Bruins here. I am tempted by the Jets and plus money given how dominant the Jets have looked as of late, but a lot of the recent success has come at home, or on the road against inferior opposition. Boston may have had some hiccups, but the TD Garden is still an extremely difficult place to go on the road and compete and I think Boston defends home ice in this one. Give me Boston on the ML.
