Senators Peaking at Perfect Time to Take on Slumping Rangers

It looks like the Rangers’ torrid pace is finally slowing a little and that’s good news for the Ottawa Senators, who they will play tonight. If this game has been played two weeks ago I would’ve predicted the Rangers in a landslide but the Sens have come out of nowhere and are winners of three straight games – two of them as underdogs.

SHARK BITES
  • The Senators are 16-6 in their last 22 games against the Rangers at MSG.
  • 6 of the last 7 games in this matchup have gone UNDER.
  • 11 of the Senators last 14 games have gone UNDER.

Defense has been a serious problem for the Rangers all season and it was only a matter of time before their red-hot offense cooled down a little. Bookmakers, however, are still giving the Rangers the benefit of the doubt giving bettors like us a good opportunity to make some underdog dollars.

Craig Anderson has been low-key one of the best goalies in the league this year and is just about unbeatable on the road. He’s 4-1 away from the Canadian Tire Centre with a stout .951 save percentage. Anderson has been more than a great story this season and if he gets the start tonight – he should – the Senators are looking like an excellent bet as moneyline underdogs.
