|Under 6 (-115) @ williamhill|
This is a 10* TOTAL OF THE WEEK on the UNDER Rangers/Devils.
New York is 19-16-6, while New Jersey is 14-20-6. These rivals have faced each other four times this year, and they've split out.
New York is coming off a 3-2 OT loss to the Islanders. The Rangers had to go through some transition at the start of the year, but overall they've been better than most thought. Note that they've conceded three goals or less in seven of their last ten games.
New Jersey has lost eight of its last ten, most recently a 5-2 setback vs. Pittsburgh. The Devils' offense has been an issue all year, and they come in now having scored three goals or less in six of their last ten games.
I think the home side slows the pace of this one down to try and grind out a victory. Expect this slower-tempo affair to produce a solid UNDER once the final horn sounds.
Good luck, NP
