The Devils are 26-54 in their last 80 road games and 4-22 in their last 26 Tuesday games. The Rangers are 2-5 in their last 7 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The under is 10-3 in Devils last 13 overall. The under is 6-0 in Rangers last 6 overall. The Devils are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in New York. The favorite is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. The home team is 14-5 in the last 19 meetings.

The New Jersey Devils are a team with potential that's worth consideration in the underdog role this season, but they've been downright awful the last couple of seasons on the road. The New York Rangers have question marks of their own this season, but they've won five of the last eight meetings against the Devils and are coming off a confidence boosting 5-0 win over the Islanders. This feels like a decent spot to get behind the Rangers with the reasonable juice. I'll back the home team.
