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

Will the Columbus Blue Jackets take care of business at home when they host the New York Rangers tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Columbus is favored at home, as the Blue Jackets are getting odds of -145 to win, while the Rangers are getting odds of +125 to prevail. The over/under total for the contest has been set at just 6 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

The Rangers had a six-game win streak snapped at Chicago on Wednesday night. New York is now 9-8-2 on the season and 2-4 on the road. The Rangers are averaging 3.32 goals per game while allowing 3.37 per contest. New York is being led by Mika Zibanejad, who has nine goals with 10 assists while Pavel Buchnevich has eight goals and eight assists. Henrik Lundqvist has a 8-5-2 record in net with a 3.04 GAA and a .904 save percentage.

Sergei Bobrovsky has a 10-4-1 record in net for the Jackets, including a 2.16 GAA and a .928 save percentage.

Bet on Rangers vs. Blue Jackets

The road team has won four of the last six meetings in this series. While the Rangers have the stronger scoring, Columbus has the better net play and defense. The Blue Jackets have won 34 of their last 50 at home and 20 of their last 27 when on two days of rest. New York has lost six straight Friday games and had their momentum taken away in Wednesday’s loss. The public betting is slight with Columbus tonight and I agree with them.
