New Jersey is 1-6 in their last 7 games playing on 1 day’s rest and 21-47 in their last 68 Thursday games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Buffalo is 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 games following a win while the under is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games following a win. New Jersey is 1-5 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.

I get that the Devils have one of the brighter young cores in the league with Nico Hischier, Jack Hughes and MacKenzie Blackwood, but the Devils have just had issues putting it all together lately and the Sabres have been on the other side reaping the benefits recently. Now the Sabres go back home for this matchup where they’ve been a better team over the years and I just think the Sabres may have New Jersey’s number here so I’ll lay the juice with the Sabres here.
