The Buffalo Sabres 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 a -180 home favorite while Buffalo is a +155 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 7 goals.

Matchup History

Buffalo’s 5-4 win on March 24th, 2023, made it four straight meetings without back-to-back winners in this head-to-head matchup.


Buffalo is 6-0 in their last 6 games against the Metropolitan division and 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 7-2 in their last 9 Tuesday games. New Jersey is 4-0 in their last 4 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 games against the Atlantic division while the under is 10-3 in their last 13 Tuesday games.


I’m backing the Sabres +1.5 here. I think that even though both teams have something to play for here with the Sabres trying to keep their playoff hopes alive and the Devils trying to catch the Hurricanes for the Central division, I think you see an inspired effort on both sides and a tight effort that could be a one goal game either way. All in all I look for a close one here and I’ll back the Sabres with the +1.5 in my back pocket.
