Philadelphia is 22-10 in their last 32 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 road games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. New Jersey is 7-2 in their last 9 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 games as a home underdog while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. Philadelphia is 15-31 in the last 46 meetings between these two teams in New Jersey and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in New Jersey.

I went back and forth on the total for this game, but ultimately I’m going to side with the under. I think Carter Hart’s better than what he’s shown us lately and the Devils are playing solid defensive hockey in their own right and I expect this to be a battle so give me the under as my free pick for this game but my stronger play is on the side and I have that available as a premium pick that you can find here.
