SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D
At 7-8-1 the Devils are behind their money line projected win total of 7.8 wins. They have 4 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 3 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game). They have exceeded expectations in home games. Their 6-1-1 home record is +24% better than their expected win percentage. Over the past 3 weeks they have played poorly going 3-6-1, 30%. In simulations where the Devils played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 44.4% of the time (#24 in the league). In our pre-season simulations they were ranked #24 winning 45.8%.
