The over is 4-1-1 in Devils last 6 overall. The under is 4-1 in Flames last 5 overall. The Devils are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Calgary and 5-16 in the last 21 meetings. The favorite is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

The Calgary Flames are the more talented team, and they’re at home, so I understand why the line is what it is. Also, it feels like some are waiting for the shoe to drop with the New Jersey Devils. However, the Devils are playing incredible hockey through 8 games and until they cool off, you have to look their direction with the plus money. So, give me the Devils and the far more favorable price.
