NEW YORK RANGERS vs. PITTSBURGH PENGUINS PREDICTIONS

The Rangers registered a 5-1 victory over the Penguins at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan on Friday, and they kept it rolling with a 5-4 overtime win over the visiting Buffalo Sabres on Sunday. New York is now just a game back of Pittsburgh for second place in the Metropolitan Division with 89 points, to 90 for the homestanding Pens.

The Penguins, apparently angry from that loss at MSG, took it out on the lowly Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. Pittsburgh piled up the goals in an 11-2 victory over Detroit. Evgeni Malkin picked up his 15th-career hat trick in the rout, while Tristan Jarry registered his sixth win in the past seven games, making 33 saves in the process. It was the first 11-goal explosion for the Pens dating back to Nov. 16, 1993, a six-goal win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

NEW YORK RANGERS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 42-19-5
  • ATS: 33-33
  • O/U: 26-38-2

The Rangers have lit the lamp five times in each of the past two games, while scoring four or more in each of the past three outings. It's no surprise that the OVER has cashed in all three games after a 3-0 UNDER run.

New York has won four of the past five games overall, while going 4-0 in the past four against teams with a winning overall record. The Rangers are 4-0 in the past four as an underdog, too.

The OVER has hit in seven of the past 10 games overall for the Blueshirts, while going 5-2 in the past seven against teams with a winning overall mark. The UNDER is 5-2 in the past seven inside the Metropolitan Division, however, while going 9-3 in the past 12 against Eastern Conference foes.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 40-17-10
  • ATS: 33-34
  • O/U: 33-31-3

The Penguins rolled up the 11 goals, snapping a mini two-game skid in the process. They're still a very impressive 4-1-1 across the past six games overall, but that lone regulation loss was in the most recent meeting to the Rangers.

Pittsburgh has won 35 of the past 52 games overall, while going 11-5 in the past 16 games inside the Metropolitan Division. The Pens have posted five wins in the past seven outings when playing on a day of rest, too.

For totals, the OVER is 8-2-1 in the past 11 games at home for the Pens, while going 4-1-1 in the past six against Eastern Conference foes. The OVER is 7-2-1 in the past 10 as a home favorite, too.

NEW YORK RANGERS vs. PITTSBURGH PENGUINS BETTING CONCLUSION

The Rangers might have dominated the most recent meeting, but they're still just 3-7 in the past 10 meetings overall in this series. In addition, Pittsburgh has won five straight at home against New York, while the favorite is 7-2 in the past nine meetings and the home team has cashed in six of the past seven outings. That makes the revenge factor look like a mighty good play here.

In addition, the OVER is an impressive 18-5-3 in the past 26 in this series, while the Rangers have hit the OVER in three straight, and the Pens have cashed the OVER in three in a row as well. You can expect some firewagon hockey in the Steel City, with the Pens likely holding off the Blueshirts in the end.
