Blue Jackets look to spoil the party vs resurgent Rangers

The New York Rangers have come back to life. After a rough start to the season, the Rangers are 4-1 SU and 5-0 ATS in their last five games and got some tough wins against Vegas and Tampa Bay last week. They now have another test at MSG when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight and opened as slight -103 favorites.

SHARK BITES
  • The favored team is 1-5 SU in the last six games in this matchup.
  • Columbus is 5-1 ATS in its last 6 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Rangers’ last 6 games at home.

Columbus continues to impress after securing its third playoff berth in franchise history last season. The Blue Jackets are 9-5 SU and rank in the top 10 in goals allowed this season thanks to goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, who ranks seventh in save percentage and GAA after 14 games. Having a top-10 goaltender will always keep you in games in the NHL, which is why Columbus is on pace for its fourth playoff berth. Taking the Blue Jackets moneyline, which opened as -108, may be the best avenue for bettors as Columbus is 4-2 SU and ATS in its last six against the Rangers.

The total opened at 6 and the trends are pointing toward the OVER.  The total has gone OVER in four of the Rangers’ last five games while the total has gone OVER in four of the Blue Jackets’ last five games on the road.
