|1.5 NJ (-115) @ pinnacle|
I'm playing NJ on the puck-line (+1.5 goals) With the Rangers heavy favorites on the moneyline, we're able to get an extra +1.5 goals with the Devils for a very reasonable price. In a game that should be tight, that extra +1.5 goals could well prove invaluable. These rivals will meet for the third straight time. Having dropped the first two of those games, the Devils should be motivated to avoid getting "swept." Note that the Devils are actually 3-1 here at MSG, since March of 2020. The Rangers are just 21-33 (-9.5 vs. ml) the past 2+ seasons, off a win by two or more goals. During that span, the Devils were a profitable 21-19 (+10.6 vs. ml) when off three or more consec. losses. Look for them to bounce back with AT LEAST a "puck-line cover."
