Devils vs Oilers Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Devils to come out with a win against the Oilers while playing on the road. Considering the moneyline odds at +136, I’m placing my bet on the Devils to win outright.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Devils winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Devils straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet on them to cover the puck line.

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 7 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
