Free NHL Picks

There is only 8 NHL Picks games left in their season, the New Jersey Devils need to pick it up or they won’t make the NHL Playoffs this 2013 season. Right now, the online sports book experts have the Devils four points out of a playoff spot and at least three games behind in the tie-breaker that is wins in regulation or overtime. Even if the Devils tie someone in points, it would be difficult for New Jersey to make up the ROW difference with only eight games remaining. But the Devils keep on pressing in the hopes that they can defend their Eastern Conference title when the playoffs roll around.

Free NHL PicksOttawa Senators @ New Jersey Devils – Friday April 12, 2013 7:00PM EST. The Ottawa Senators have been doing their best impression of a sinking stone as they keep falling in the Eastern Conference standings. The betting websites note that Ottawa’s current five-game losing streak is not helping the team’s cause and could be pushing the Senators closer and closer to elimination. Ottawa finally got starting goaltender Craig Anderson back from injury, but the return of Anderson has not yet sparked the Senators to victory. Ottawa needs to get its game together and start posting wins if it wants to keep the rest of the pack out of playoff contention.

At this point, the sports betting experts figure that New Jersey Devils have no choice but to win the rest of their games to even have a shot at the playoffs. Not only that, but the Devils would probably also need to win all of the games in regulation or overtime to get over the tie-breaker. That makes New Jersey just as desperate as Ottawa in this game. The Devils need to clamp down with their defense and make the Senators screech to a halt if they want to win.

Before Craig Anderson’s injury, the Senators were hitting on all cylinders. This is a physical team that can skate, and it also has some fine goaltending as well. Ever since Anderson’s injury, the Senators have fallen on hard times. The return of Anderson almost seemed to make everything worse for the team. The Senators need to get back on their playoff focus and start building up positive momentum heading into the playoffs. Without a few wins under their belt entering the postseason, it could be early tee times for Ottawa.

This should be an entertaining game to watch because both teams are desperate and need the win. However, the Devils usually clamp down on a game when they get desperate and that can make for some boring hockey. New Jersey knows how to win these kinds of games and the Ottawa Senators still do not have any answers on how they want to end the season. Look for New Jersey to grind Ottawa right into the ice in this game and win in regulation. Free NHL Picks New Jersey Devils.
