Hurricanes vs Rangers Prediction

For a moneyline pick, I’m taking the Hurricanes to pick up on a win over the Rangers and the road. With the moneyline sitting at -114, I’ll be locking in a bet on the Hurricanes straight-up.

For my recommended choice in the puck line, I’m leaning towards the Rangers to cover. Even if the Hurricanes secure a straight-up win, this game is expected to be tightly contested, and the Rangers should cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 5.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
