Playing the Blues in Jersey
The Devils will host the Blues today at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey with a scheduled start time of 7:35 PM ET. According to the NHL betting odds at Bookmaker, the Devils are a -115 money line favorite, and the posted total is 5.0. These teams split their two meetings a season ago, and both won in convincing fashion on home ice. Following today’s game, these teams will meet once again in St. Louis on Thursday.


Continuing to Roll
The St. Louis Blues come off a 4-3 win last night at Madison Square Garden against the defending Eastern Conference champion New York Rangers. The win was the 5th in a row for the Blues, and they now find themselves just 1-point behind Nashville for the lead in the Central Division, and only 5 behind the Western Conference leading Anaheim Ducks. Tonight will be the Blues 3rd in the last 4, 4th in the last 6, and 5th game in the last 8-days. Highly touted rookie Jake Allen will be in goal for the Blues this evening. Allen has gone 2-1 in 3-starts with an excellent .944 save percentage.


Devils Inconsistent to Start
The New Jersey Devils began the season by winning their first 3-games, proceeded to lose the next 4, and enter tonight having captured 3 of the last 4 including victories in their last 2-contests. The most consistent part of the Devils game in the early part of the season has been their inconsistency, and although that’s certainly an oxymoron, but yet, a very accurate assessment. Today will be the finale of a short 3-game in 6-day home stand for the Devils. Cory Schneider is listed as the probable starting goaltender tonight for New Jersey. Schneider has started all 11-games for the Devils this season, and is 6-5 with a .909 save percentage.


Final Analysis
New Jersey has allowed 3.3 goals per game on the season. The Devils are coming off wins of 2-1 over Winnipeg, and a 3-2 versus Columbus in their last 2-games. These past two results, in addition to the goals allowed per game statistic, lead us into a terrific money line betting system that can be used on your NHL picks today. Any money line home favorite that’s allowing 3.0 or more goals per game, and has allowed 2-goals or less in each of their previous two games, has gone 60-16 (78.9%) during the past 5-seasons.
