Rangers vs Avalanche Over/Under Pick: Under 6½ (-115)

After back-to-back 2-1 games between the teams, expect more offense in this matchup as the Rangers have 14 goals in its last three games while Colorado scored at least four goals a total of four times in a recent six-game stretch. That is something to consider for NHL over/under predictions.



Rangers vs Avalanche ATS Pick: Rangers +1½ (-175)

Something will have to give as Colorado’s 28 home wins are the most in the NHL while the Rangers are second among Eastern Conference teams with 22 road wins.

The Avalanche had its nine-game winning streak snapped by a loss to a Montreal team sitting in last place in the Atlantic Division. The Rangers have won five of their last six games.

Look for Colorado to return to its winning ways but the Rangers could cover as the 1½-goal underdog.

Stopping Colorado is never easy but the Rangers need to do it without injured defensemen Jacob Trouba and Ryan Lindgren. Forward Alex Wennberg and defenseman Erik Gustafsson are questionable.

Defenseman Samuel Girard and forwards Valri Nichushkin and Joel Kiviranta are questionable for Colorado while winger Logan O’Connor is out.



Rangers vs Avalanche Player Prop Pick: Nathan MacKinnon 2+ Points (-124)

Nathan MacKinnon has at least one point in each of his home games this season and 17 multi-point games at home so take a look at the odds for MacKinnon to have at least two points for your player prop bets.
