Knights look to continue hot start vs slumping Rangers

Oh, how the New York Rangers have fallen. The Original Six squad, routinely in the thick of the playoff hunt in the Eastern Conference, is now tied for dead last in the East and is 3-9 SU this season. Well, it doesn’t get any easier now as the Rangers welcome the Vegas Golden Knights, who are shocking the hockey world with their incredible 8-2 SU record to start the season. For those reasons, bettors can feel confident taking the Vegas moneyline, opening at a juicy +171.

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games.
  • Vegas is top-five in goals scored and goals against this season.
  • Henrik Lundqvist is averaging a career-worst 3.11 GAA this season.

The Knights have been on a great run for an expansion team, going 5-1 SU in their last six games and 2-1 SU in their three road games this season. Madison Square Garden may be the “Mecca of Sports Theatre” but it’s been two thumbs down for the Rangers this season. New York is 2-5 SU in its last seven games at home. Placing a wager on the Rangers moneyline would not be advised until they show a spark of respectability.

However, if taking the moneyline on a road team makes you queasy, the +1.5 puckline for the Knights opened at a decent -155. The Knights are 5-1 ATS in their last six and have shown early this season that they will not be pushed around by the heavyweights in the NHL. The Rangers -1.5 puckline, which is hovering around +155, can’t be trusted at this time until we see some life from the Blueshirts.

The trends are pointing toward an OVER in this matchup and could be a great way to increase your cash flow. The total opened at 6 and it’s gone OVER in four of Vegas’ last five games. On the flip side, the total has gone OVER in five of New York’s last six games despite their recent struggles.
