The New Jersey Devils continue on the road and will visit the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday. This is the fourth time these teams face off this season, the Canes won 2 of the last 3 games. The Hurricanes have already clinched the playoff berth and the division title while the Devils are eliminated.
New Jersey Devils
The Devils have lost 4 straight games and are only 11-29 away from home with a 27-44-9 record overall ranking 7th in the Metropolitan division. The Devils are 9-13-3 against the rest of their division. New Jersey has scored 239 goals and is 10th in the Eastern Conference averaging 3.0 goals per game. Jack Hughes leads the team with 26.
Jesper Bratt leads the Devils with 46 total assists and has 71 points. Nico Hischier has seven assists over the last 10 games for New Jersey.
In their last 10 games the Devils are 3-7, averaging 2.8 goals, 5.1 assists, 2.8 penalties and 5.6 penalty minutes while allowing 3.2 goals per game with an .889 save percentage.
The Hurricanes have won 5 games in a row and are 28-12 at home with a 53-20-8 overall ranking 1st in the Metropolitan division. The Hurricanes are 29-14-6 against Eastern Conference opponents. Carolina ranks fourth in the Eastern Conference averaging 5.8 assists per game, led by Tony DeAngelo with 0.6.
Sebastian Aho leads the Hurricanes with 80 points, scoring 37 goals and adding 43 assists. Seth Jarvis has 9 points over the last 10 games for Carolina.
In their last 10 games the Hurricanes are 7-3, averaging 3.5 goals, six assists, 4.3 penalties and 9.7 penalty minutes while giving up 2.8 goals per game with an .893 save percentage.
New Jersey are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games against Carolina.
New Jersey are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 10 of Carolina's last 15 games against New Jersey.
The total has gone UNDER in 13 of Carolina's last 17 games at home.
The Devils are already eliminated and looks like they just want this season to end as they have lost their last 4 games but they have covered the spread in 5 of their last 6 games on the road. The Hurricanes have clinched the division title but they continue to win but they haven't been profitable ATS at home this season so I think the value is on the Devils to cover the puck line.
PICK: Devils +1.5 (+107)
