Hockey bet losses on the Rangers were halted recently but New York has been a weak hockey wagering commodity for most of the season’s second half. Despite a strong first half to the season and ranking near the top of the eastern conference for much of that initial span the Rangers have been one of the worst values to make a hockey bet on this season.
New York had a hockey wagering mark of 40-29-3-6 straight up but was just 33-44 against the hockey gambling lines. Offense has been the reason for New York’s lack of hockey bet profits this year as the Broadway Blue Shirts ranked a dismal 29th overall in the league.
Defense is what has saved the Rangers as they ranked 7th overall. In full desperation mode to save their season the Rangers had a bit of a rally since the end of February.
From February 28 through April 2 New York paid off those who made a hockey bet on them 9 out of 15 times, but even then caution should be noted as the Rangers were 1-3 at the tail end of that stretch. Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was literally trying to carry the Rangers all by himself with a .914 save percentage and a 2.48 goals against average.
Centers Scott Gomez and Chris Drury along with right wing Nikolai Zherdev supplied what little offense the Rangers offered to those making a hockey bet on them. The Philadelphia Flyers have been a profitable team to make a hockey bet with this season.
The Flyers had a record of 42-25-5-5 straight up and 42-35 against the hockey gambling lines. The Flyers have been a strong hockey bet as an over team at home this year as just 11 out of their 39 home games went under the total.
Philadelphia continued to be a good hockey bet as an over from March 23 through April 3 as they went under the total just 1 out of 6 games during that stretch.
