    Devils at Red Wings picks and predictions

    Prediction

    Red Wings 4, Devils 3.

    Moneyline

    New Jersey has some terrific puck-possession analytics through the early going. The Devils have been creating a ton of quality chances while allowing few.

    Look for a bounce-back effort despite the games on consecutive days. Against a bit of a banged-up Detroit offense, there is some leverage in NEW JERSEY (-112).

    Puck line/Against the spread

    PASS on the juice-heavy puck-line props.

    Over/Under

    There is a lot of juice here for an O/U. Although there is more firepower to this New Jersey offense than in the last couple of years, the netminding in this one has question marks. However, the pricing does not offer value.
