Money Line Pick
A pair of teams just looking to pick up victories, as the New Jersey Devils continue a west coast road trip with a stop at Staples Center to face the Kings. Los Angeles should have some confidence after taking down the Metropolitan giant the Penguins in their previous game. The Devils shockingly have found pretty decent success in recent visits to Staples Center, winning five of the last six meetings in LA. New Jersey is also 4-1 overall in the last five head-to-head meetings. The Kings are 1-2 in their last three home games. Taking the Devils’ money line on the road is a good call.
Over Under Pick
In each of the Devils’ last five games, the total has liked hanging around five goals. Nothing spells a good shot at yet another under total like a game that features a pair of teams averaging less than three goals per game. This match-up features a 5.5-goal total. Six hasn’t been the lucky number for either team, and that is likely to hold true once again. Taking the under with confidence is the right move.
