NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New Jersey Devils at Pittsburgh Penguins

New Jersey at Pittsburgh -205 O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Over

The Pittsburgh Penguins are red hot having won six of their last seven games overall and 12 straight at home and their potent offensive ability is a big reason why. Pittsburgh has tallied a whopping 42 goals in their last nine games combined averaging well over four goals per game during this stretch. The Pens already had a bunch of goal scoring options in Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin just to name a few on this loaded squad but they added to it prior to Monday’s trade deadline acquiring center Derick Brassard in a deal with the Ottawa Senators. Brassard brings his 18 goals and 38 points in over 50 games this season to bolster this already lethal Pittsburgh squad even more. The Penguins will face New Jersey’s backup goalie Keith Kinkaid tonight who has been thrust into regular duty with the injury absence of Cory Schneider. Kinkaid has very porous numbers in his career against Pittsburgh entering tonight with a 3.69 GAA and .891 save percentage in 4 games played against the Penguins. Pittsburgh should have the potential to get to their normal 4+ goals in this game tonight. On the flip side, New Jersey’s offense should be able to contribute to the scoreboard as well in this game tonight. The Devils will draw Pittsburgh backup goalie Casey DeSmith in this matchup and they’ve already had the luxury of facing him once already this season and New Jersey wound up with 3 goals in that game and this should be a spot for New Jersey to find the back of the net and it’s worth noting they have scored 3+ goals in three straight meetings against the Penguins. Pittsburgh is 6-1 to the Over in their last 7 home games and each of those six Overs had 7 or more total goals which is why I am still confident this game can eclipse even this higher total sitting at 6.5 for this game. Expect a similar Over the total result here tonight.
