Buffalo had made tremendous progress this season compared to past results when the club was a hopeless outsider in the league. However, they still failed to finish the regular season, which caused them to lose their chances of making the playoffs. In March, the Blades played 12 games and suffered ten losses, beating only Tampa Bay and Toronto 5:3 and 4:3, respectively. In their last two games, the team lost to Boston and Nashville 0:7 and 3:7, respectively, leaving them in 12th place in the Eastern Conference standings.
New Jersey Devils
New Jersey is another team that has been unsuccessful all past seasons. In the current regular season, the Devils have been on a roll right away while still avoiding severe slumps, with a considerable likelihood of making it to the playoffs. The team has lost four of their previous five meetings, but before that, they had a three-game winning streak. The Red and Black also win significantly more often than they lose, making them comfortable. The Devils are in third place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Buffalo and New Jersey have been neighbors in the Eastern Conference standings for the last few years, but that has changed. While the Blades have slipped back into the ranks of outsiders, the Devils are still in the top three. The Red and Black have played great on the ice at the Kibank Center, winning their last five faceoffs. Now the squad still has serious gambling problems. They've lost four straight games, and the visitors should take advantage of that. You can bet on the New Jersey victory.
Buffalo fought for a long time to make the playoffs, but then the club had a slump, which continues to this day. The Blades' defense looks particularly weak right now, as they have conceded 39 pucks (5.57 average per game) in their last seven meetings, a disastrously poor showing. The Devils don't have the brightest offense in the league, but they should take advantage of the Yellow and Blue defensive problems. Thus, the optimal variant for the prediction seems to be an individual total of New Jersey more than 3.5 pucks. It is worth paying attention to the bet on the total over 0.5 points of Dawson Mercer.
