Devils look to bounce-back as road dogs vs Calgary

The New Jersey Devils continue their two-game trip into Alberta when they face the Calgary Flames tonight. The Devils are coming off a tough 6-3 loss to the Oilers Friday and take on the Flames, who are 7-6 SU this season and aiming for their third win a row.

SHARK BITES
  • Flames goaltender Mike Smith ranks 7th in save percentage (.936) and 10th in GAA (2.19).
  • Calgary is 7-3 SU in its last 10 vs New Jersey.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of New Jersey’s last 6 games on the road.

The Devils, despite their recent hiccup, have been one of the nicer surprises in the NHL this season, with a record of 9-3 SU overall. And they’ve got an impressive record on the road. New Jersey is 5-1 SU and ATS in six road games and opened as +150 dogs to get a win at Scotiabank Saddledome. The moneyline could be the best wager for bettors as the Devils +1.5 puckline is not worth it, opening at -190.

Calgary could be in tough to stave off New Jersey. The Flames have not played well at home this season as they’re 3-4 SU and 1-6 ATS in seven games in their barn. Goal-scoring has been hard to come by this year for the Flames, who have been atrocious offensively this season. They currently rank dead-last in goals per game (2.31) and they only have one player with more than five goals in this campaign (Sean Monahan). Bettors should avoid the Flames moneyline and puckline in this matchup.

Despite that indictment on the Flames offense, trends still heavily point towards an OVER. The total opened at 5.5 and goal-scoring shouldn’t be an issue for the Devils, who rank third in the NHL in goals per game (3.75). The OVER has also hit in eight of New Jersey’s 12 games this season. The Devils are expected to be without starting goaltender Corey Schneider in this matchup and backup Keith Kincaid is allowing 3.66 goals per game in his last three starts this season. Bettors who prefer to place wagers on the UNDER should look elsewhere to make some profit.
