Will the Rangers at MSG continue to reward bettors vs Canucks?

The New York Rangers look like a completely different team in the month of November. After starting the season 4-9 SU in the month of October, the Rangers have since gone 8-2 SU and welcome an up-and-coming Vancouver squad that has reveled in the role as underdog after the quarter mark of the season. The Canucks opened as +150 road-dogs in this Sunday afternoon affair.

SHARK BITES
  • New York is 10-3 ATS in its last 13 games.
  • Vancouver is 5-1 ATS in its last six games.
  • The total has gone over in four of the last six games in this matchup.

Despite the Rangers’ great record at home (9-5 SU), the Canucks on the road are not to be overlooked. Vancouver is 8-4 SU on the road this season and has yet to be a favorite in another team’s barn. For bettors, this means they’ve been a great wager away from Rogers Arena. Rookie Brock Boeser has been an excellent find for the Canucks, who was drafted at end of the first round in 2015. The winger has been on a tear recently, scoring six goals in his last five games. Look for the Canucks to keep it close as they’ve averaged three goals per game on the road in their last 10 games.

If bettors are considering New York for today’s game, they won’t get much value for their moneyline. However, their -1.5 puckline would be a decent wager (opened at +195) as the Rangers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games and are 9-6 ATS overall at Madison Square Garden. They’ve also owned this matchup, going 7-3 SU and ATS in their last 10 games versus the Canucks.

The total opened at 5.5 goals and the OVER should be seriously considered. The total has gone OVER in four of Vancouver’s last five games on the road and as mentioned, are lighting it up away from home. Not to be outdone, New York is averaging 3.2 goals per game overall this season and will look to capitalize on Vancouver’s road travels after they dropped a 3-2 game versus New Jersey on Friday.
