The Carolina Hurricanes are travelling to New York on Friday to take on the rested New York Rangers.
The Hurricanes coming off a big win over the Sabres Yesterday scoring a bunch of goals to win 6-5. The Hurricanes are 4-1 to the over in their last 5, and scoring 23 goals in the process. If we go back 10 games, The Hurricanes are 7-3 to the over and doing very well offensively.
The New York Rangers are 3-2 to the over in their last 5, going back 10 games they are 6-4 to the over. More interestingly, the Rangers are 5-2 to the over in their last 7 HOME games.
The New York Rangers are coming into this game fresh off a 1 day break and will be fired up for the win here. The Rangers have been scoring well at home, and the Hurricanes have been allowing quite a few goals in their recent games.
Both teams are trending well to the OVER in their last 10 games, and head to head in their last 2 games (most recent January 14 2019) they have gone well over the total line. In the last meeting in New york The Rangers won 6-2. In October 2018, the Hurricanes won a 8-5 a slug fest in New York also.
I think you know where this is heading. I think the trend is set to continue here. Based on all the information we have to work with, Im backing the OVER. Plus, the line is at 6.0. Capable of scoring at least 3 each here ? I think so.
