BETTING TRENDS

NY Rangers are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

NY Rangers are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Carolina.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Carolina's last 6 games against NY Rangers.

Carolina are 9-0 SU in their last 9 games at home.

Prediction

The Rangers won both games at home but they have been dominated in Carolina as they've lost 6 of the last 7 games there. However, in a must win situation the Rangers are capable of win this game but the Canes play better defense at home so I expect another close game and with the under cashing in 5 of the 6 games this series I'll play the under again.

PICK: Under 5.5 (-110)
