The Devils are 6-1 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 24-51 in their last 75 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Sharks are 1-6 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 0-4 in their last 4 home games and 0-5 in their last 5 overall. The under is 4-0 in Devils last 4 overall. The under is 5-2 in Sharks last 7 overall. The Devils are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in San Jose and 4-10 in the last 14 meetings. The favorite is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The New Jersey Devils used to be automatic fade material on the road, and they have lost six of the last nine meetings against the Sharks. However, the Devils are simply playing the better hockey overall heading into this matchup, and the San Jose Sharks aren't a team I love laying juice with given the shakiness on the defensive end. The New Jersey Devils are the team in much better form and you can make a lot of money in this sport just by riding the hot hand and not being afraid to take underdogs. Give me the Devils and the more favorable price.
