Blue Jackets vs. Rangers Pick

NHL Predictions: Columbus Blue Jackets vs. New York Rangers 11/6/17

Will the New York Rangers be able to fend off the Columbus Blue Jackets when the two meet up tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, this game is considered even, as both the Rangers and Blue Jackets are getting odds of -110 to win tonight. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 6 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York.

Columbus is coming off a 5-4 shootout loss at Tampa Bay on Saturday night for just its second loss in six games. The Blue Jackets are 9-4-1 overall and 4-2-1 on the road. Columbus is averaging 3.36 goals per game while holding opponents to just 2.64 goals per contest. The Jackets are being led by Seth Jones and Artemi Panarin, who each have 11 points. Josh Anderson and Sonny Milano are the top goal-scorers with five each. Sergei Bobrovsky is expected in net tonight. He has an 8-2-1 record with a 2.23 GAA and a .927 save percentage.

The Rangers are on a three-game winning streak right now following a 5-4 OT win at Florida on Saturday. New York is now 6-7-2 on the season and 4-4-2 at home. New York is putting up 3.13 goals per game this season while allowing 3.40 per contest. The Rangers are being led by Mika Zibanejad, who has eight goals and six assists. J.T. Miller also has 14 points on 11 assists and three goals. Henrik Lundqvist is 5-4-2 in net and has a 3.08 GAA and a .902 save percentage.

Bet on Blue Jackets vs. Rangers

Columbus has two straight meetings the Rangers and their last two trips to New York. The Rangers are just 3-8 in their last 11 conference games and 0-4 in their last four games against Metropolitan opponents. While the Rangers are on a nice win streak, I don’t think it will continue tonight. The Rangers don’t have the balance of scoring and defense to sustain a long win streak. Columbus is 4-1-1 in its last six and playing very well. The public betting is backing the Blue Jackets on the road and I agree with them.
