What is the angle that will make the New York Rangers a solid bet at Colorado on Friday night despite being huge underdogs? Perhaps it’s not what the Rangers can provide, but what the Avalanche cannot as they come into the game in a free fall having dropped 6 in a row.
New York Rangers
The Rangers aren’t a total lost cause on the road and their record of 6-10-2 away from the Big Apple isn’t great – but it’s not preposterous either. In the last week alone New York has scored a 2-1 win in St. Louis (at +152) and an OT win in Nashville that paid out at a hefty +196.
On Friday night the odds are stacked against NYR again as +185 ‘dogs. That might not seem like a horrible wager with Henrik Lundqvist in net. The veteran goaltender needs a bounce back after allowing 6 goals on just 18 shots two days ago vs. Pittsburgh.
Colorado has one of the most talented offenses in the league and they should be able to slip at least 2-3 past Lundqvist on Friday. Then again the Avalanche have been held to 2 goals or less in 4 of the last 6 games. Friday’s O/U is set at 6.
Colorado will try to end their six game skid behind Philipp Grubauer between the pipes. He’s gone 1-3-1 his last 4 decisions but also has some work to do after giving up 4 goals on 14 shots January 2nd to San Jose. He also allowed 4 goals on just 16 shots to Arizona on 12/22 so when Grubauer is bad – he’s really bad.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Rangers are 7-3 last 10 vs. Western Conference
- Avalanche are 0-6 the last six overall
- Avalanche are 0-4 their last four home games
Free New York Rangers vs. Colorado Avalanche NHL Prediction:
The Rangers play pretty well vs. the West having won 7 of their last 10. Is that because teams from the other conference overlook New York in what is seemingly a highly winnable game? Colorado should by no means get complacent in this game after dropping 6 of their last 7. They’ll score – but can their goaltender stop anybody?
