Fans of the New Jersey Devils can now bet on their favorite team in their home state or in New York either online or at retail locations. New York State allowed online sports betting in January 2022. 

It was a mediocre season for the Devils, who finished 2021-22 with a 27-46-9 record. They were mostly competitive at home, but only won 11 games on the road. We anticipate that the Devils will be longshots to make the NHL playoffs again next season, continuing a trend that’s seen them miss the postseason eight of the past nine years. New Jersey last made the playoffs in the 2017-18 season but was eliminated in the first round.

Licenses for nine mobile sportsbooks have been granted, meaning bettors will have multiple options to pick their favorite sports betting apps. These eight online sports betting apps are currently live:

Latest NJ Devils News

2021-22 Season in Review for the New Jersey Devils

The Devils had one of the worst seasons across the NHL, finishing with a 27-46-9 record. They were 14th in the Eastern Conference with 63 team points. Only the Philadelphia Flyers and Montreal Canadiens finished worse in the conference. If there’s any positive, the goal differential of minus-59 wasn’t near as bad as the comparable teams.

Jasper Bratt and Nico Hischier were the highlight players this season. Bratt led the team with 26 goals and 47 assists, which tallied up to 73 total player points. Hischier had 21 goals and played in 70 of the 82 total games. Jack Hughes had a shortened season with 49 total games played, but did manage 56 total points and tied total goals with Bratt at 26.

New Jersey’s season started off fairly well with a combined 9-7-4 record across the first two months. It began with a 3-2-0 record in the first five-game homestand and took down Pittsburgh in its first road game. Highlight wins in November included a 7-3 victory over Florida and 5-3 road win over Tampa Bay.

The Devils fell out of contention across December and January. Through the first 20 days of December, the Devils dropped all but one game to Philadelphia at home. Wins picked up at the turn of the new year, but another lengthy losing skid took place from Jan. 8-Feb. 7. The only team they beat in this stretch was Carolina.

After winning back-to-back games on the road in early February, the Devils lost two big games against Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay at home. Dropping to a 17-28-5 record after Feb. 15, the Eastern Conference was starting to shape up as top-heavy. The writing was on the wall in terms of realistic chances to make the postseason.

While they took care of business at home in March, all eight road games in that month were lost. In complete contrast, they went 0-6-2 at home in the final month of the regular season.

How Are the New Jersey Devils Betting Odds Calculated?

Every sportsbook has its own oddsmakers and their job is to set odds that draw bettors to wager on both teams, meaning there’s no sizable disadvantage for the sportsbook regardless of which team wins. The line for each game includes the spread, moneyline, and total, as shown in this example from Dec. 19, with the odds courtesy of DraftKings.

TeamSpreadTotalMoneyline
Pittsburgh-1.5 (115)O 6 (-110)-235
Devils1.5 (-145)U 6 (-120)170

The Penguins entered this game as prohibitive favorites on the moneyline as bettors needed to wager $235 to win $100 if Pittsburgh won the game outright. If you bet $100 on the Devils to win, you’d receive $170 in winnings if New Jersey cashed.

With a spread of 1.5 goals, the Penguins needed to win by two goals to cash in, while those betting on the Devils would win their wager as long as the Devils either won the game outright or lost by just one goal. With the total set at six goals, those taking the under had to wager $120 to win $100, while those taking the over had to bet just $110 to win $100.

Who Won the Game and Which Bets Paid Off?

With a 3-2 win, bettors taking the Penguins on the moneyline cashed, winning $100 for every $235 they placed on Pittsburgh. The Devils didn’t win on the scoreboard, but they covered the 1.5-goal spread, so if you took the Devils at 1.5, you won $100 for every $145 wagered. The relatively low-scoring affair was a winner for those who took the total at under six goals, with those bettors earning $100 for every $120 wagered.

Futures Odds on the New Jersey Devils

If you placed a futures bet on the Devils to win the Stanley Cup for the 2021-22 season, sorry. New Jersey was not a realistic contender after the slide across the months of December and January. 

Right now, the Devils are significant long shots to win the 2022-23 Stanley Cup. BetMGM has their odds at +8000. This isn’t to say that the team does not have talent. After all, Hughes alone could have made this team more competitive if he played in more games. He only had 49 total appearances and still strung together 26 goals and 30 assists.

Prop Bets on the New Jersey Devils

There are a number of prop bets available — bets where you choose either the Devils or their opponent to reach a certain milestone in the game. You can wager on which team will score the first goal, or the last goal, or which team will be the first to score two goals, or three goals, etc.

You can also bet on if you think either team will record a shutout. Additional options include wagering on the winning margin, the total number of goals scored in the game, and even if the total number of goals will be an odd or even number.

In addition to prop bets on a particular game, sportsbooks offer odds on which players will take home the awards handed out after the season, ranging from the Hart Trophy (MVP) to the Vezina Trophy (Top Goalie), not to mention the James Norris Trophy (Top Defenseman) and the Calder Trophy (Top Rookie). You can also wager on who will lead the NHL in goals scored on the season.

At that point, you first must download the app from either the App Store (iOS devices) or Google Play (Android devices). The next step is to sign up for your account, which requires your name, mailing address, email address, and cell phone number. You’ll also need to set up security questions to verify your account and the last four digits of your Social Security number. You can also enter your promo code during the registration process.

The next step is to fund your account. Each app has its own options, including credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, or online banking. After that, click on the tab for your sport of choice and find the game you’re looking to bet on, and go from there.

Do the New Jersey Devils Have a Sportsbook Partnership?

In January 2021, the Devils and Prudential Center announced a multi-year deal with PlayUp, which is available to bettors in New Jersey and Colorado. PlayUp is the presenting partner of the team’s PlayUp Studio, its pregame show leading into all home games. They also have an activation location in the “PlayUp Sports Lounge” inside the arena.

In November 2021, the Devils announced a partnership with Betway, giving Betway TV-visible signage throughout the Prudential Center and Betway was named the presenting partner of “Devils Starting Line-Up,” which appears on all of the team’s social media platforms.

Prudential Center — Devils’ Home Arena

The New Jersey Devils have called the Prudential Center home since the 2007-08 season. The arena is located at 25 Lafayette Street in Newark, New Jersey.

History of the New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils took the scenic route on their way to becoming the team we know them as today. Originally the Kansas City Scouts, the team moved to Denver in 1976 to become the first adaptation of the Colorado Rockies. Six years later, the Rockies moved to New Jersey to become the Devils.

Once adopting the New Jersey name, unlike other teams who’ve moved in and out of the state or played within the Garden State, the Devils have earned their Jersey pride.

NJ Devils History

During their first five years in New Jersey, the Devils failed to make the playoffs. Beginning in the late 1980s and lasting until the 2010s, the Devils repeatedly made the playoffs, including a stretch of 13 seasons in a row.

In the 1994-1995 NHL season, the Devils were crowned Stanley Cup champions for the first of three times. The Devils swept the Detroit Red Wings 4-0. The Devils were crowned Stanley Cup champions again in the 1999-2000 season after defeating the Dallas Stars 4-2. Their last Stanley Cup victory came in the 2002-2003 season against the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. They won the Stanley Cup Finals 4-3.

The success of the Devils on the ice was due to the many NHL legends who skated in the Meadowlands. Led by legendary goalie Martin Brodeur, defensemen Scott Niedermayer, and Scot Stevens, the team produced a roster full of great players.

NJ Devils Timeline

  • 1982: The Colorado Rockies hockey team, formerly the Kansas City Scouts, moved to New Jersey to play at Brendan Byrne Arena at the Meadowlands
  • 1995: Devils earned their first Stanley Cup title
  • 2000: Devils defeated the Dallas Stars in the Stanley Cup Finals
  • 2003: Devils defeated the Mighty Ducks for their third Stanley Cup title

NJ Devils Home Arenas

From 1982 until 2007, the Brendan Byrne Arena, also known as the Continental Airlines Arena, served as the home ice for the Devils. The arena is located in the Meadowlands sporting complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

With the arena showing its age, the Devils moved to the Prudential Center in downtown Newark, New Jersey. This state-of-the-art arena is also home to the Seton Hall basketball team.

NJ Devils Key Rivalries

When the Devils relocated to New Jersey in 1982, they joined a metropolitan area already occupied by two NHL teams: the New York Rangers and New York Islanders.

As the new kids on the block, the Devils became immediate rivals to these two historic teams. Competing in the same conference elevated the rivalries. The rivalry with the Rangers has taken on a life of its own. After the Rangers claimed their first Stanley Cup title after 40 years in 1994, the Devils won it all in 1995.

Outside of their New York rivalries, the Devils, like all New York area teams, have developed a strong rivalry with the Philadelphia Flyers. Sharing the same division, the Devils and the Flyers have met 242 times with the Devils holding a 124–96–15–7 advantage.
