Devils vs Rangers: NHL Betting

The slumping New York Rangers will look to bolster their win total and reward moneyline bettors when the New Jersey Devils invade Madison Square Garden on Monday.

But the Rangers are struggling and the Devils still hungry for a higher playoff seed, so they are attracting betting interest as +130 underdogs.

Of note, the UNDER is 5-1-1 the past seven meetings between these Atlantic Division rivals at MSG.

New York's struggling power play (second worst in the NHL)  will face the 41-26-5 Devils. In totals betting, the Rangers are 27-29-15 favoring the UNDER so far this season while the Devils are 32-30-10 favoring the OVER.
