NHL Betting Pick #4:
The home team New York Rangers are 2-4 even after adding Artemi Panarin in the offseason. They face the defensive-minded Arizona Coyotes who might be one of the most underrated teams in hockey right now. Head-to-head New York holds a 8-1-1 record against Arizona in the last ten.
In their last three the Rangers are winless while Arizona is 3-0. Arizona has beaten Ottawa, Nashville and Winnipeg. New York has lost to Vancouver, Washington and New Jersey. Two teams going in different directions lately.
Recent trends show the Rangers are 1-4 in their last five. But, 9-1 at home against Arizona. They’re also 2-4 in their last six. As for Arizona, they are 4-1 in the last five, 2-9 in the last 11 against New York, and 1-9 on the road against the Rangers in their last ten.
The model likes Arizona with a 50.25% chance. I like this pick, Coyotes -110. They keep the Rangers from scoring too much.
