NHL Picks: New York Rangers

NHL Picks: New York Rangers

Pick Sixty staff writer ‘JD 66’ runs through the teams ahead of the 2014-15 regular season with a look at player moves, coaching changes and sports betting hot spots backed by SDQL database codes

The 2013/14 campaign for the Rangers ended on a bittersweet note; three games they held early leads in the Stanley Cup final only to lose each one in OT, eventually going down 4-1 to the Kings. NHL oddsmakers have listed the Blueshirts at +426 to win the Metropolitan division this year, second behind the Pittsburgh Penguins.

NY Rangers 2014 Preview

Projected Season Win Total: 42 (Pinnacle Sports)

New York just didn’t get the goal support they needed from their high paid stars last season to close out games and the result was an off-season buy out. Brad Richards will see if he can regroup in Chicago this year.

 

Marty St. Louis was everything the Rangers bargained for at the trade deadline, but will the aging vet be able to push through another long season where he will be expected to be the spark to an otherwise hard working, but lackluster offense?

 

From the blue line back the Rangers are as steady as they come. Bringing yet another former Lightning Cup winner in Dan Boyle gives NY three solid defensive pairings. He should also add some much needed help on the power play. In goal Henrik Lundqvist will be one of the best again this year, but we question whether the King will have enough will to drag his merry men all the way back to the Finals without the goal support.

Pick Sixty Betting Tip: Unders, baby

Whether its first period, team totals or full game totals in the right spots, the Rangers were an “Under” machine in 2013 (30-41-11 O/U) and they’ve been a strong under bet in seven of the past eight seasons. During last year’s regular season games, when the total was 5.5, New York played under 20 of 27 times (74-percent) — Check the Rangers betting trends now at SportsDatabase.com!

These guys won’t allow much but barring break-out years from the likes of Carl Hagelin and Chris Kreider, they won’t score many most nights either.
