|NJ (-115) @ Betamerica|
Taking the Devils for 8* here...
NJ is 9th in the league in expected goals at 5 on 5 in their last 10 games compared to 27th for the Sabres. Although Buffalo has done much better on the scoreboard recently, getting 5 points in 3 games, they're still playing like the Sabres, just getting luckier.
Last game when the Sabres beat the Devils, NJ had generated 70.5% of the expected goals at even strength. Yet the Sabres won 5-3. That's a very lucky result given how the two teams played.
Devils should get the win tonight.
