NHL Predictions March 19: Back Rangers To Clip Jets

The New York Rangers are ready to expose the Winnipeg Jets again as they meet for the final time this regular season. The Rangers edged Winnipeg 3-2 back in October and are favored by the odds to do so again. We agree and recommend them on the moneyline along with a bet on the ‘under’ as an NHL over-under pick. Despite the tight odds, the Rangers are a tier ahead of Winnipeg.

Jets vs Rangers ML Pick: New York Rangers (-120)

The Rangers have several advantages over the Jets. On top of playing at home, the Rangers have also fared better against playoff-caliber opponents. Meanwhile, Winnipeg has lost eight of its last 10 games against similar teams. The Jets are also without Gabriel Vilardi and the team is barely a playoff team when playing without him.

New York has also won five of its last seven meetings versus Winnipeg. Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin is red-hot against the Jets with a 4-1-0 record and a whopping 95.3% save percentage. And in their last 10 meetings, the Rangers have the edge in special teams.

Add this all up and the Rangers are the logical NHL prediction tonight. They should be able to assert their style of play versus the Jets and win a low-scoring game.



Jets vs Rangers Over/Under Pick: Under 5½

The Jets have scored six goals in their last two games against bad teams. But this team was held to two goals versus Nashville, none against Vancouver, and one against Dallas. It’s unlikely for Winnipeg to score plenty here as it also holds the Rangers to under four goals. Bet online on the ‘under’.



Jets vs Rangers Player Prop Pick: Mark Scheifele Under ½ Point (+106)

Without Vilardi, the onus is on Jets center Mark Scheifele to produce even more. But that type of pressure tends to get to his head. So our NHL pick is for the Rangers to keep Scheifele at bay and to neutralize most of what the Jets will do on offense.
