Rangers aim for seventh win in row vs Chicago

The New York Rangers land at the United Center to face off against the Chicago Blackhawks and this Original Six matchup will be the main event tonight for NHL bettors. Chicago has yet to find its form this season and dropped an ugly 7-5 loss at home to the Devils on Monday. The Blackhawks opened as -124 favorites and will need to dig deep to get the victory.

  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Rangers’ last 8 games.
  • Patrick Kane has one goal in his last 8 games.
  • Chicago is 1-6 ATS in its last 7 games at home.

The first month of the season was a nightmare for the Rangers. With New York going 4-9 SU in its first 13 games, many experts wondered if goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was washed up and if the Rangers would miss the playoffs for the first time since 2009. Fast-forward to November and New York is undefeated at 5-0 SU and ATS and putting the NHL on notice. Hovering at +114 to get their seventh win in a row, the Rangers make an excellent moneyline wager for bettors.

Chicago has been abysmal by its standards this season. The perennial Stanley Cup contender is 1-3 SU in its last four games and 1-4 SU in its last five games at home. The Blackhawks are on the outside looking in for the playoff hunt currently and may be in trouble to make the postseason if they can’t turn it around. To pour more salt in the wound, the Blackhawks are 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games at home against the Rangers. It may be best to fade the ’Hawks for the time being until they can show some signs of life.

The total opened at 6 in this matchup and it’s shaping up to be an UNDER. The total has gone UNDER in five of Chicago’s last six games at home. Also, the last four times the Rangers were in Chicago, the average total score was 3 and the UNDER hit each time. Don’t expect an offensive explosion in this contest.
