NHL Betting: Hawks vs. Rangers
The Chicago Blackhawks will look to avoid a 10th straight loss when they take on the league-leading New York Rangers in NHL betting action on Thursday night.
The once-promising Blackhawks now seem destined for a battle just to stay alive in the NHL playoff race, and they are sinking in the Western Conference standings. New York will be a home favorite at 5Dimes when the two meet for the first time this season.
The Rangers hold a convincing head-to-head record against Chicago, and they will likely see most of the attention on the NHL betting lines. New York has won four of the last five against the Blackhawks, and are currently riding a four-game winning streak.
Five of the last six meetings between these teams have made winners of UNDER bettors in totals betting.
Phoenix and Los Angeles are currently occupying the final two spots in the Western Conference playoff picture. The Coyotes can tie the Kings for seventh place in the West with a victory as likely road underdogs at 5Dimes in NHL betting action later on Thursday.
The Kings have won both meetings between these teams at the Staples Center this season, and have taken three of four this year head-to-head. Los Angeles will see the majority of attention on the NHL betting lines, but the Coyotes have won four of their last five games.
Nashville has been playing well of late, but now they'll try to beat the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena in NHL betting action on Friday night. The Red Wings set an NHL record with their 21st straight win at home last time out, and once again it’s safe to label them as a likely home favorite at 5Dimes for this NHL betting matchup.
Detroit has won two of three against the Predators, and was victorious in the only matchup this season at Joe Louis Arena. The Red Wings will see few doubters on the NHL betting lines in this matchup. Two of three head-to-head between these teams have made winners of UNDER bettors in totals betting.
