The New Jersey Devils and the Boston Bruins meet in NHL action from the TD Garden on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Boston is a -135 home favorite while New Jersey is a +115 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.

Matchup History

Boston’s 3-1 win back on December 28th, 2022, made it five straight wins for the Bruins in this head-to-head matchup over the Devils.


New Jersey is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 27-11 in their last 38 road games while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games following a win. Boston is 45-10 in their last 55 home games and 58-16 in their last 74 games overall while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games against the Metropolitan division.


I’m going to back the under here. I think this is going to be a playoff type atmosphere with both teams having different motivations for coming out and trying to get a win here. Boston is trying to chase down NHL history to post the most wins and points in a season while the Devils are trying to secure the Metro division title while trying to chase down Carolina. I think this ends up being a highly competitive game and for this one to come in under the number.
