New York Rangers vs. Vegas Golden Knights

Rangers / Golden Knights Under 6.5

The total in this game is 6.5 and the under is where I will be looking to play it. The Golden Knights are averaging 2.9 goals per game, while the Rangers are scoring 3.1. The defenses for both sides have held their opponents to an average of 2.2 goals per game over their last five. In fact, the under is 7-3 in Vegas’ last ten games overall, and for the Rangers, the under is 13-3 in their last sixteen games as an underdog. The under is also 15-5-2 in the Rangers’ last twenty-two games against an opponent from the Pacific division. I like the defenses to play moderately well here and I look for a 4-2 kind of score. That being said, I like the under in this game as a strong lean.
