A pair of Zach Parise goals put the New Jersey Devils back in a tie for the Eastern Conference Finals lead against the New York Rangers, now fans and critics alike are watching to see how the NHL odds shift for Game 5.
New Jersey Devils vs New York Rangers (Game 5)
Can the Devils, who’d previously been overshadowed by their No. 1 seed opponent, stake a worthy claim on the Stanley Cup futures? Up to this point those betting on the NHL have seen the Rangers touted as moneyline favorites.
In New Jersey, however, it’s not so simple. With legendary goaltender Martin Brodeur operating between the pipes, it’s hard to ever rule them out entirely, even more so when the man has some momentum behind him as is the case after Game 4.
Brodeur may have looked mortal over the course of the past few seasons, a shell of his former self when lined up against younger All-Stars like Henrik Lundqvist, but nobody knows what it takes to win a Stanley Cup more than he does.
With mid-to-low NHL odds, despite being tied in their series, the Devils are an intriguing bet option. Whether or not they’ll be able to cash in on the work they’ve put in over the course of these playoffs and rally to beat the New York Rangers in the Conference Finals is what it all comes down to.
