The New York Rangers hit the road and will visit the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. This is the fourth time these teams face off this season, the Rangers have won 2 of the last 3 head to head but the Devils scored 7 goals against them in the last meet.

The Rangers are 11-7-1 against opponents in the Metropolitan. New York has scored 210 goals and is 10th in the Eastern Conference averaging 3.0 goals per game. Chris Kreider leads the team with 46.

The Devils have lost 4 of their last 5 games and are 16-19 at home so far this season. They have a 24-39-6 record overall ranking 8th in the Metropolitan division. The Devils are 15-23-4 in Eastern Conference games. New Jersey ranks ninth in the Eastern Conference recording 8.1 points per game, averaging 3.0 goals and 5.1 assists.

BETTING TRENDS

NY Rangers are 8-4 SU in their last 12 games.

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

New Jersey are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.

New Jersey are 6-3 SU in their last 9 games at home.

Prediction

The Rangers will try to avoid a 3 straight loss as they lost their last 2 games at home. New York have been good at home lately, winning 5 of their last 6 games and are 2-1 against the Devils this season. New Jersey are one of the worst teams in the NHL and have a terrible defense, allowing 4.8 gpg in their last 10 games. I like the Rangers to bounce back and get the win on the road.
