In their last 10 games the Hurricanes are 7-3, averaging 3.4 goals, 5.8 assists, 4.3 penalties and nine penalty minutes while giving up 2.2 goals per game.

BETTING TRENDS

Carolina are 12-3 SU in their last 15 games.

Carolina are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games against NY Rangers.

The total has gone UNDER in 10 of NY Rangers' last 15 games against Carolina.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of NY Rangers' last 7 games at home

Prediction

The Rangers struggled to score in the first 2 games of the series as they've only scored 1 goal so far but they'll play at least 2 games at home where they win the 66% of the time. The Hurricanes are playing great defense allowing only 2.2 goals per game in their last 10 games. I think the Canes will continue to dominate on this series but I'll play the under.

PICK: Under 5.5 (-110)
