Devils look to stay hot against ice-cold Oilers

Two teams going in opposite directions. The Edmonton Oilers are in the midst of a terrible slump and now welcome to town an up-and-coming New Jersey Devils team that is firing on all cylinders and is 6-1 SU in its last seven games.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Devils’ last 10 games.
  • Edmonton goalie Cam Talbot ranks 32nd in save percentage and 35th in GAA.
  • Edmonton is 4-1 SU in its last five games against New Jersey.

The Oilers are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games but still open as home favorites, at -155. Bettors should be hard pressed to place a wager on any positive result for the Oilers at this time, especially at home. At Rogers Place, Edmonton is 2-5 SU and 1-6 ATS. Connor McDavid and company will need to dig deep if they plan to make any noise this season and contend for a playoff spot.

New Jersey, on the other hand, has been on a tear to start the season and is one of the hottest teams in the league. The Devils are 9-2 SU this season and have an impeccable road record at 5-0 SU and ATS in five games. After finishing last in the Eastern Conference (70 points) and drafting first overall in 2017, not much was expected of Jersey. Now, the Devils are tied for second in the East and will look to make the playoffs for the first time since 2013. Opening at +145, New Jersey’s moneyline has the best value for bettors.

The total opened at 5.5 and bettors should consider the OVER for this matchup. The total has gone OVER in five of seven games at home for the Oilers this season while the OVER has hit in four of the Devils’ five road games this year. Opening at -120, the OVER is providing decent value and would make a great wager.
