Sharks vs. Devils Pick

NHL Predictions: San Jose Sharks vs. New Jersey Devils 10/20/17

Can the New Jersey Devils keep up their hot start when they host the San Jose Sharks tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, the Sharks are favored on the road in this game, as they are getting odds of -130 to win, while the Devils are listed with a money line of +110 to win. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The Devils have been a nice surprise so far, starting 6-1 thanks to an OT win over the Senators in Ottawa last night. Jersey is 2-1 at home so far this season. The Devils are putting up 4.29 goals per game this season while allowing 3.00 per contest. Both Taylor Hall and Will Butcher have nine points for the team behind a combined 17 assists. The Devils have six players tied for a team-high three goals this season. Corey Schneider has a 3.30 GAA in six starts, but a lower-body injury has him questionable tonight. Keith Kinkaid has a 1.48 GAA in two appearances with a .950 save percentage.

San Jose is coming off a 5-2 win over the Canadiens on Tuesday to improve to 2-3 on the season. The Sharks have gotten their first five games at home, so tonight is their first road game. San Jose is averaging only 2.60 goals per game while allowing 3.20 per contest. Logan Couture and Kevin Labanc are leading the Sharks with three goals and two assists each. Martin Jones is 2-2 in net with a 3.38 GAA and a .895 save percentage thus far.

Bet on Sharks vs. Devils

The Sharks have dominated this series winning seven of the last nine meetings. That includes five straight trips to New Jersey. However, the Sharks are playing on the road for the first time this season after being at home for the first two weeks. That should throw the team off a little bit. New Jersey has been finding the net consistently through a number of scoring options. I think that continues tonight. The public is slightly behind the Devils, as they are getting 56 percent of the wagers.
