Devils vs. Oilers Pick

NHL Predictions: New Jersey Devils vs. Edmonton Oilers? 11/3/17

Will the New Jersey Devils stay hot when they go on the road to face the Edmonton Oilers tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Oilers are the clear favorite at home, as they are getting odds of -175 to win. The Devils are listed with a money line of +165, while the over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta.

The Devils are rolling right now, as they have won three straight and six of their last seven. New Jersey is coming off a 2-0 win at Vancouver on Wednesday night. New Jersey is 9-2 overall and 4-2 at home. The Devils are averaging 3.64 goals per game this season while allowing 2.82. Taylor Hall is leading the team with three goals and 12 assists while Brian Gibbons has a team-high five goals. Cory Schneider is 6-1 in net for the Devils. He has a 2.84 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

Edmonton is coming off a 3-2 loss at home to the Penguins on Wednesday. It was the Oilers fourth loss in five games. Edmonton is now 3-7-1 on the season and 2-5 at home. Edmonton is scoring just 2.18 goals per game this season while allowing 3.27 per contest. Connor McDavid has five goals and eight assists to lead Edmonton this season while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has five goals. Cam Talbot is 3-6-1 in the net this season. He has a 3.10 GAA and a .904 save percentage.

Bet on Devils vs. Oilers

The Oilers have won four of their last five meetings with New Jersey, but the Oilers haven’t looked like a team worth betting on so far in 2017. The Oilers are 2-9 in their last 11 Friday games and 0-6 in their last six against Eastern Conference teams. The Devils have won five straight road games entering tonight and their play has been stellar thus far. I think the Oilers are much too strong a favorite for this matchup. The public betting is slightly behind the Oilers, but I like the Devils in an upset.
