New Jersey is 8-22 in their last 30 games overall and 18-37 in their last 55 games as an underdog while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record. New York is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home favorite and 1-4 in their last 5 games following a win while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games as a home favorite. The road team is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.

I get that the Rangers are the better team playing better hockey, and New Jersey’s deadline deals sure made it look like New Jersey is just mailing it in on the rest of the season. However, as well as New York is playing, they’re not going to win every game and the Devils have been playing better as a whole on the road than the Rangers have been at home this season. The road team has also won all five meetings between the two this season, so I’ll take my chances with the Devils on the money line in this spot.
