BETTING TRENDS

NY Rangers are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against Carolina.

NY Rangers are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Carolina's last 5 games against NY Rangers.

Carolina are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Prediction

The Rangers won both games at home but they will play the game 5 in Carolina where they lost the first 2 games of the series. The Hurricanes play better defense at home so expect we should see a low scoring game again. The Under has cashed in all games this series so I'll take it.

PICK: Under 5.5 (-110)
