2 Units Detroit ML
Grabbing it at -160 tonight because I expect this to go up by tomorrow
New Jersey (23-17 Road) heads to Motown to take on the Detroit Red Wings (31-8 Home) for the first and only meeting this year. These two do not meet often but when they do Detroit usually has their number. In their last 8 meetings Detroit is 6-2 against the Devils. Both of the losses to NJ were on the road.
The Red Wings have fared well in the back2back situation this year going 8-5. When they are in the second game of a back to back at home they are a perfect 4-0 on the season.
With Nashville breathing down their necks in the standings the Wings need this one badly to secure Home Ice Advantage. As for the Devils they have the best spot in the East right now sitting in 6th where they would play the Florida Panthers and I highly doubt they want that 5th seed to draw Pitt.
This is a step up in competition for the streaking Devils compared to their recent opposition and I think Detroit will find a way to put an end to that streak on Thursday night.
Good Luck everybody and enjoy the games tomorrow
