NYR-DET Usually a Low-Scoring Affair

Detroit Red Wings New York Rangers NHL

A pair of Original Six clubs meet at Joe Louis Arena Saturday afternoon and if history is any indication, bettors are in store for a low-scoring game when the New York Rangers and Detroit Red Wings hit the ice.

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are 4-0 SU in their last four games versus the Atlantic Division.
  • The Rangers are 1-8 SU in their last nine meetings versus the Red Wings in Detroit.
  • The home team is 6-0 SU in the previous six meetings between the two teams.

The last 10 times the Rangers and Red Wings have played, the UNDER has gone 8-1-1. The pair met on February 21 of this season and the Blueshirts skated to a 1-0 victory in front of their home crowd at Madison Square Garden and easily cashed for UNDER bettors. The one OVER in that stretch came back on November 5 of last season. The Rangers won 4-3 on that day, but those seven combined goals scored easily eclipses the 10-game average of 3.5 gpg.

The Wings snapped a three-game losing skid with a 3-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets in their last game on Thursday. They have gone just 4-7 SU in their last 11 games and had better start recording some consistent victories before some teams behind them close in on a playoff spot.

The Rangers, on the other hand, have won five of their last seven and are coming off a 4-2 victory at the Buffalo Sabres in their last effort Tuesday. They are second in the Metropolitan Division but the New York Rangers are hanging around, making life difficult for their neighbors.
