The Vegas Golden Knights travel to New Jersey to take on the NJ Devils. These two teams are trending in opposite directions as they meet midweek to battle for 2 points. The Vegas Golden Knights are 17th in the NHL with a record of 13-11-4 coming off of 2 big wins. The NJ Devils are 30th in the league with a record of 9-12-4. The Golden Knights have been trending upwards towards a playoff spots as they look to return to the championship they failed to gain 2 years ago. On the other side, the NJ Devils are falling down, failing to find playmakers when it matters most. Luckily this is the NHL, and things can change on a dime starting with 2 points in this game.

Vegas Looks To Keep Win Streak

The Vegas Golden Knights enter this game on a 2 game win streak. The Golden Knights have been just average on the road, posting a record of 6-6-1 when away from Sin City. Vegas needs more scoring, as they rank just 21st in scoring when on the road with an average of 2.54 goals per game. Lower line players such as Cody Glass need to start producing a bit more if the Knights want consistent scoring. Top players such as Mark Stone cannot be the only ones making plays on offense.

The Vegas defense has been much better, ranking 6th on the road with just 2.77 goals allowed per game. Marc-Andre Fleury and company seem to do a great job clearing out the crease and clearing pucks out of the defensive zone. This does not come as a surprise, as Fleury is a sure hall-of-famer and is still an elite goaltender in the NHL today. Look for Fleury to have a big game for the Knights to win.

New Jersey Devils Need To Wake Up

The Devils have not been having an amazing year and need to turn things around soon to keep their playoff hopes alive. The defense has not done well at home, ranking 29th in the NHL with 3.43 goals allowed per game. Mackenzie Blackwood has not had many good performances this season and is a big reason for the defensive struggles by the Devils. The Devils' skaters have done a great job allowing few shots a game, however, these few shots always lead to goals for the opposition. Blackwood needs to wake up and start making big saves if the Devils want to right the ship.

NJ has had slightly more success scoring when at home, as they rank 24th in the NHL with 2.93 goals scored per game. Taylor Hall continues to emerge as the lone superstar on this NJ squad, racking up 21 points in 25 games. Hopefully first overall pick Jack Hughes can start netting some more, scoring just 11 points thus far. Both skaters will look to make some plays to pull out this win.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Take the Devils on the Puckline in this one. If the lines come out as the Devils somehow getting the -1.5, then take Vegas on the moneyline. However, the NJ Devils are looking to get the puckline here, so take them +1.5. The Devils are motivated to win for their fans at home in this one, and Mackenzie Blackwood has had a good few games. The Devils skaters have gotten a lot of heat for not helping Blackwood his last start, and the skaters will look to give some goal support in this game. Take the +1.5 because this game is going to be close, even if the Devils do not win outright.

Prediction: NJ Devils +1.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Take the Under here. Both of these teams are motivated to win this game, and I believe the Devils will control the pace here at home. The Devils like to win low scoring games and will look to continue that trend in this one. Marc-Andre Fleury will keep this game low scoring for the Devils, as he is primed to have another amazing performance. On the other side, Blackwood will look to keep Vegas down to 1 or 2 goals so the Devils can win this one while just scoring 2 or 3. Take the Under, and root for a nice old fashioned gritty game here.

Prediction: Under 6.5
