Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

There are 3 teams who have 30/1, 3.2% odds to win the Stanley Cup. They do not have any real chance to win the championship. In simulations, they win the East 0.1% of the time and are not a good value at 15/1, 6.2%. The Rangers are averaging 84.3 points per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 88.5. At +130 the Rangers are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 21.3% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 8/1, 11.1%. They win the division in 1.6% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #12 in the East.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

They were expected to win 42% of their games last season so their 32-36-14 met expectations. Against the money line they lost -600 units. They went 47-35 on puck lines (-56 loss). They went over 40 times and came in under 38 times. Their next game vs the Jets should be close. The Rangers are winning 50 percent of computer simulations. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be slightly better. Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is -0.56 (includes playoff games) which ranks #25 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #26. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #21 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #29 in road games.
