The Pittsburgh Penguins and the New Jersey Devils meet in NHL action from the Prudential Center on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
New Jersey is listed as a -155 home favorite while Pittsburgh is a +135 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.
New Jersey’s 5-2 win back on February 18th, 2023, made it four straight wins for the Devils in this head-to-head matchup.
Pittsburgh is 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 games following a win while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 division games. New Jersey is 9-1 in their last 10 division games and 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games while the under is 3-0-1 in their last 4 division games.
I’m backing the Penguins here. New Jersey’s a solid team, but they’re a lot more desirable on the road and I wasn’t a fan of how the Devils looked against Winnipeg in their last game. The Penguins need the wins to keep their names in the running for an Eastern Conference wild card spot and I think they get it with a win in this one.
