Thursday's NHL Prediction

2010 NHL Picks and Predictions for Thursday December 2

NEWARK, NJ (TheSpread) – The New Jersey Devils are in need of a winning streak while Montreal is hoping to stay atop the Northeast Division when the two meet in the NHL on Thursday.

New Jersey 8-14-2 on the season, scoring just 45 goals while allowing 69. The Devils are 4-5-2 at home and winners in 4 of their last 10 games.

Montreal is 15-8-2 on the year and the Habs have scored 63 goals and allowed 51. They are 6-4-0 on the road and winners in 6 of their last 10.

Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given New Jersey betting odds of -117 for the game while the Canadiens have a betting line of +108. 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.

Montreal Canadiens vs. New Jersey Devils, 7PM ET (View Matchup)

The Canadiens have won just 6 of their last 27 meetings with New Jersey but the road team has won the last 4 in this series. Montreal is playing better hockey and fighting for a division title early on. I like them to come out and win a low-scoring game.
