Devils vs Sabres Moneyline Pick: Devils (-115)

Though New Jersey is on the road in the final matchup, it should be able to pick up the win to get the sweep of Buffalo for the season.

The Devils have had the Sabres’ number this season, outscoring them 12-6 in two games, and with New Jersey’s offense picking up recently as well, it should do so Friday too. The Devils have scored 4.2 goals a game in their last five games, winning four of them, while their defense has performed well as well. New Jersey has limited teams to 2.2 goals a game in that time, including a shutout on the road.

That doesn’t bode well for a Buffalo team that ranks 11th-worst in scoring, averaging 2.96 goals. The Sabres have averaged 3.4 goals in their last five games and are coming off a 6-2 loss against struggling Ottawa.

With New Jersey’s offense clicking down the stretch and the Devils still hoping for a playoff spot, expect them to come out hot and grab the win.

 

 

Devils vs Sabres Player Prop: Jack Hughes Over 1.5 Points (+154)

Jack Hughes leads the Devils in scoring with 26 goals and is second on the team with 71 points, and he should keep up the production with another strong offensive day against Buffalo. Although a two-point performance may seem ambitious, Hughes has earned at least two points in four of his last five games, including his last two on the road.

Hughes has a point in each of his first two games against Buffalo while he has scored 36 points in 26 games on the road. With New Jersey’s offense playing well recently, Hughes should be looked upon to help keep that scoring up.
