2011 NHL Picks and Predictions Wild Devils

NEWARK, NJ (TheSpread) – The New Jersey Devils desperately need a win on Tuesday night when they host the Minnesota Wild. Here is a breakdown of my pick for this contest.

New Jersey is 10-26-2 on the season and 6-11-2 at home. The Devils have scored just 68 goals and allowed 122. New Jersey is a winner in just 2 of its last 10 games.

Minnesota is 18-15-5 on the season and 8-6-3 on the road. The Wild have scored 98 goals and allowed 112. They are winners in 5 of their last 10 games.

Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given New Jersey betting odds of -127 for tonight’s game while Minnesota has been given odds of +117. The over/under for goals scored has been set at 5. Here is a look at the trends and my pick for tonight’s game.

Minnesota Wild vs. New Jersey Devils, 7PM ET (View Matchup)

Minnesota is 5-1 in their last 6 games when playing on 1 ay of rest while the Devils are just 0-7 in their last 7 games on 2 days of rest. My pick is with the Wild as the Devils are nearly giving up two times as many goals as they score and the Wild is a respectable road team with underdog odds.
