The Sabres are 41-100 in their last 141 games playing on 0 days rest and 18-57 in their last 75 road games. The Devils are 18-39 in their last 57 home games and 2-12 in their last 14 overall. The over is 5-1 in Sabres last 6 overall. The under is 10-4 in Devils last 14 home games. The Sabres are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

This is an absolute brutal matchup and you shouldn't be running to the window to back either of these teams. The Buffalo Sabres are probably the better team on paper and they've won three of the five meetings this season against the Devils. However, I'm not backing a Sabres team on the end of a back to back that's riding an 11-game losing streak. The New Jersey Devils are rested, at home and have had recent success in the favorite role, winning six of their last eight tries. It's Devils or pass for me.
