NHL Betting Trends

New York

The Rangers are 25-52 in their last 77 games as a road underdog. New York is 2-5 in its last seven games played on one day of rest.

Las Vegas

The Golden Knights are 4-1 in their last five games overall. Las Vegas is 5-2 in its last seven games as a favoirite.

Prediction:

Las Vegas was playing well prior to the loss in the last game and a 3-2 OT defeat at an Islanders squad that plays fantastic defense is not exactly anything to hang its hats about. The Golden Knights have a prime opportunity to bounce back here against an inconsistent Rangers squad. Expect another strong performance out of Las Vegas with No. 1 goalie Marc-Andre Fleury back between the pipes.
