BETTING TRENDS

Carolina are 12-4 SU in their last 16 games.

Carolina are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games against NY Rangers.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of NY Rangers' last 10 games against Carolina.

NY Rangers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 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 bounced back at home and got their first win on the series. Both teams are playing great defense, the Canes are allowing only 2.1 goals and the Rangers 3.1 goals per game in their last 10 games. I think the Canes will win this game but I'll play the under again.

PICK: Under 5.5 (-110)
