NEWARK, NJ (TheSpread) – The New Jersey Devils are a surprising favorite against one of the best in the league, the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday. Here is a look at my pick for this game.

Tampa Bay is 37-18-7 on the season and have the second most points in the East. The Lightning are 16-11-3 on the road and have won 5 of their last 10.

New Jersey is 27-31-4 on the year and 14-13-3 at home. The Devils have won 9 of their last 10 games, but still rank 13th in the East with 58 points.

Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given New Jersey betting odds of -129 for today’s game while Tampa Bay has odds of +119. 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.

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. New Jersey Devils, 7PM ET (View Matchup)

Tampa Bay is just 5-16 in their last 21 games with the Devils and 1-7 in their last 8 in New Jersey. However, Tampa is 8-2 in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record and 7-3 in their last 10 road games. I know the Devils are hot, but my pick is with the Lightning. Nobody really wants to acknowledge them as a good team and I think they will come in on Wednesday and cool off the Devils.
