The New Jersey Devils and Montreal Canadiens face off on Tuesday in an NHL showdown at the Centre Bell. 

Devils Involved in One Score Games

The Devils sit with a 2-1-1 record overall and each of the four games have been decided by one goal. In the last game against the New York Islanders, the Devils scored five goals and they ended up winning in overtime. Jack Hughes had a strong game scoring two goals and two assists. The Devils on the season are averaging 3.75 goals while their defense is giving up 3.5 goals per game. The defense hasn’t been great but the offense is ranked 8th in the league.

Devils Betting Trends

  • The Devils have won each of their last six night games at Bell Centre.
  • The Devils have covered the puck line in each of their last six games at Bell Centre.
  • The 'Over 1.5 Goals Period 3' market has hit in each of the Devils' last six games after coming off overtime.
  • The Devils have won the third period in each of their last six night games at Bell Centre.

Canadiens on Tired Legs

The Canadiens might have some tired legs heading into this game after taking on the Buffalo Sabres on Monday night. On Saturday it took overtime, but the Canadiens were able to secure the 3-2 victory. Two games ago against the Minnesota Wild the defense gave up five goals and that led to the defeat. The Canadiens are averaging 3.25 goals while their defense is giving up 3.5 goals per game. In this game the defense is going to need to step up, and really have a good third period to try and close the deal. 

Canadiens Betting Trends

  • The Canadiens have lost each of their last four night games following a road win.
  • The road team has covered the puck line in eight of the last nine games between the Devils and Canadiens.
  • The road team has won the third period in 16 of the last 17 games between the Devils and Canadiens.
  • The 'Over 1.5 Goals Period 1' market has hit in five of the last six games between the Devils and Canadiens at Bell Centre.

Shane’s Free Pick

This is going to be a close game, and I also expect it to be a high scoring one. The Devils are averaging 3.75  goals and they are going to find plenty of success against the Canadiens defense. The Canadiens are also averaging 3.25 goals per game and they are going to find plenty of success scoring here. Look for both offenses to run up the score and the over is going to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
