Monday NHL Free Pick
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Rangers –108 on the money line against the Bruins, who are +100. The puck will drop tonight at 7:30PM ET.
The Bruins enter tonight’s game with a 44-23-5-6 record overall and are 24-10-2-3 on the road. The under is 40-29 in all Boston games overall and 18-14 when the Bruins have played on the road this season.
The Rangers come into Monday’s contest with a 42-32-2-3 record and an 18-16-1-3 mark at Madison Square Garden. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 45-30 in all New York games and 18-18 when the Rangers have played at home.
NHL Free Pick: The road team has won all three road meetings between these two teams, which could mean the home team is due. Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist is on fire and seeing as how the Bruins have already clinched the Northeast Division and are the No. 3 seed, there may be some natural letup on Boston’s part. On the flip side, the Rangers would love to create some breathing room in the Eastern Conference and should be plenty focused tonight. The Bruins are just 2-5 in their last seven meetings with the Rangers, while New York is 4-1 in their last five games as a home favorite and 4-1 in their last five home games total. Take New York.
