New Jersey Devils @ Buffalo Sabres – Saturday March 2, 2013 3:00PM EST

The betting sites know that the Buffalo Sabres is one of the worst defensive teams in the NHL. Goaltender Ryan Miller has been left on his own more than once and Miller has done his fair share to steal a few games for the team during the course of this frustrating season. But when Buffalo took on the Tampa Bay Lightning recently (Tampa is the highest scoring team in the league) the Sabres won that road game. With the Sabres in transition from long-time head coach Lindy Ruff to interim coach Ron Rolston, the team has become dangerously unpredictable.

The online sports book experts are always amazed at how strongly the New Jersey Devils cling to its defensive style of play. The Devils will not open up and play a high-flying style, no matter who is behind the bench. This season, the Devils have parlayed its defensive style into another run at the Eastern Conference playoffs. But New Jersey has hit some problems as of late and the timing could be right for the Devils to get upset by an unpredictable team like the Buffalo Sabres.

Why the Sabres Will Win

The online casino players are not ready to start elevating the Stanley Cup odds of the Buffalo Sabres just yet, but the team did look a little better in Tampa. The problem is that the forwards were the ones coming back and playing defense, while the Buffalo defense still struggled to get into position. New Jersey does not present the same challenges that Tampa Bay threw at Buffalo. If Ryan Miller remains hot and the Sabres decide to take the play to the Devils, this could be a very long and frustrating night for the New Jersey Devils.

Why the Devils Will Win

Despite the recent challenges the Devils has been experiencing, this is still a team capable of shutting down any opposing offense. With legendary goalie Martin Brodeur in goal and the defense playing well, New Jersey is more than capable of defending its own net. Where the Devils will need to be careful in this game is on offense. New Jersey needs to not take as many chances as it normally would or those chances could turn into scoring opportunities for Buffalo. As long as New Jersey plays its game, it should be able to come out with the win.

The Bottom Line

The New Jersey Devils is in a mini-slump, but it would not take much to get out of it. On the other hand, the Buffalo Sabres seem to be slowly finding a way to win games over playoff contenders. It is unclear as to whether or not the Sabres can be considered playoff contenders themselves as of yet, but Buffalo can certainly make life difficult for the teams like New Jersey that have their sights set on the playoffs.

Pick: Buffalo Sabres
