Rangers and Sharks could be a nice play for OVER bettors

The New York Rangers host the San Jose Sharks on Monday night and both of these teams have struggled to start the season. The Rangers have won only two of their nine games and are 1-5 SU in their last six. Meanwhile, San Jose is coming off an ugly 5-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Saturday where they gave up three goals in the third period. It can only get better for these squads, right?

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are 11-1 SU in their last 12 games on Monday.
  • The Rangers are 7-17 ATS in their last 24 games at home.
  • San Jose is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games on the road.

Well, the Rangers are coming off a decent 5-3 home win against the Nashville Predators on Saturday and New York’s moneyline, hanging around -110, may be the safest option for bettors. The Sharks’ recent road history and record at Madison Square Garden does not bode well in their favor. San Jose has lost its last three trips to MSG and sports a 3-9 record SU in the last 12 games away from SAP Center. The Sharks are desperate for Brent Burns to regain his Norris Trophy form or it could be a long tense season for San Jose.

For bettors sniffing around the totals in this matchup, consider placing a wager on the OVER. The total sits at 5.5 and recent history shows both teams will put up some points. Both the Rangers and Sharks are averaging three goals per game in their last four contests.  It also helps when expected goaltenders Martin Jones for the Sharks and Henrik Lundqvist for the Rangers rank 18th and 27th in save percentage this season.
