NHL picks

Your best bet : moneyline rangers (-114)

New York enters this competition playing a much more extensive game than Los Angeles, which is why we’re betting on them to win.

The Rangers are a top 10 team in high-risk chances (4th) and high-risk chances for (9) in 60 over the past two weeks, according to Natural Stat Trick. This is why they are third in high-risk opportunities by percentage (56.16%) during this period.

Although the Kings are going strong defensively, they struggle to make a lot of offense. They are 21st in high-risk chances per 60 (11.23) over the past two weeks and have scored just three goals in their last two games.

Goaltending also favors New York in this, as its team’s save percentage (. 914) is greater than Los Angeles’s (. 901) over the last 14 days. A big reason for this, of course, is Igor Shesterkin. 917 save percentage this season isn’t equal to his level last year, but he’s starting to turn the corner as he has a . 943 save percentage over his last three starts.

Bet on Rangers to win this competition on the road.

Basic stats: The Kings have lost three of their last four games.

Quick picks

Rangers vs Kings Under 6 goals (-120): It is wise to take bottom in this game given how strong each team is defensively.

New York only allows 10.56 high-risk chances per 60, the ninth-lowest number of the last two weeks. Meanwhile, Los Angeles dropped to third place (10.11) in the league during the same time frame.

He has achieved less than that total in four consecutive Rangers and three consecutive Kings contests. Expect these two trends to continue.

Canadian Money Line (-120): Buffalo is in free fall mode, making Montreal the obvious play on the money line.

The Sabers have lost eight straight games and are 27th in high risk percentage (44.22%) over the last 14 days. They also receive the worst goal-scoring (. 850 SV%) of any team in the league over this period.

Meanwhile, the Canadians are playing some pretty decent hockey. They have been ranked 12th in High Hazard Odds Percentage (52.17%) over the past two weeks and have won four of their last six.
