Here's a juicy pick today hockey fans.
2 UNIT = Montreal Canadiens @ New York Rangers - RANGERS TO WIN (-110)
(Note: I'm risking 2.00 units to win 1.82 units)
The Rangers have opened the season just 3-6, but they have to play a game at home. Tonight will be New York's home opener, as MSG was under some construction which lead to them having a 9 game road trip to start the season. The Rangers had a big confidence boosting win in Detroitnight winning 3-2 in overtime as they out shot the Red Wings 40-34. They've out shot opponents in 4 straight games (going 2-2 in those games), and are starting to play much better hockey. The Canadiens are fresh off a 5 game home stand, but went just 2-3 over those 5 games including losing 3 of their last 4. Their latest was a 2-0 loss at home vs San Jose where they were out shot 37-22.
games have been a let down spot for Montreal lately after Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday's, as they are just 2-9 in their last 11 games played on a . While New York hasn't played at home this year, they do enjoy playing at MSG going 53-26 in their last 79 home games overall. While Montreal has had recent success vs New York, the Rangesr are 9-4 in their last 13 home meetings vs Montreal. The Canadiens aren't playing good hockey right now, while New York is coming off their best game of the year and now playing in their home opener with Lundqvist back between the pipes. I'll take the Rangers in a pick'em.no comments
