Devils vs. Hurricanes Game 5 & Series Predictions

The Hurricanes looked utterly dominant in Game 4. Carolina effectively ended the game with a five-minute blitz in the second period that resulted in five goals.

The Canes have outscored the Devils 17-3 in their three victories. Game 3 proved to be an anomaly with New Jersey winning by a score of 8-4.

We’re going to make a play the total again. The Devils vs. Hurricanes Game 5 bet is on the Over 6 (+100 at DraftKings). Even-money is more than fair after every game in the series has gone Over 5.5 so far.

If the Devils deadlock the series tonight, we’ll be taking a good look at series prices as we head back to Carolina for Game 6. Remember, DraftKings opened Carolina as a +110 underdog before the series started.

Had the Devils prevailed in Game 4, we were targeting a series bet on Carolina if the price swung back toward even-money. DraftKings opened Carolina as a +110 underdog in this series. The Canes are now -750. No bet.
