Hockey Wagering: New York Rangers vs. Dallas Stars

Hockey wagering Friday features an inter-conference matchup of the Rangers and Stars in hockey betting action from Dallas.

Hockey wagering on either one of these teams has been a bankroll buster so far this season but there are great hockey betting angles to this one.  The New York Rangers are a hockey wagering enigma.

New York had an overall hockey betting record of 29-17-2-2 straight up but was just 20-30 against the hockey lines.  The Rangers did pick up the pace somewhat in January; however, as from January 10 through January 28 they went on a hockey wagering run by going 5-2.

The Rangers have been one of the strongest “under” hockey wagering teams this season as just 17 of their first 50 games went over the total.  From January 9 through January 28 the Rangers went on a hockey wagering run of 6 unders in 8 games.

A big reason for the Rangers being such an under team is that they are amongst the best defensive teams in hockey wagering with an overall ranking of 6th in the National Hockey League.  New York’s hockey betting weakness has been their 27th ranked offense.

Markus Naslund and Nikolai Zherdev were the top offensive players for the Rangers.  Henrik Lundqvist was stellar in goal.  The Dallas Stars hockey wagering numbers more closely reflect their disappointing straight up record.

Dallas had an overall hockey wagering record of 22-18-3-4 straight up but was just 20-27 against the hockey lines.  Part of the problem for Dallas and their hockey wagering value is that they had such a good season last year that fans consider them an upper echelon team, which comes with it an inflated price against the hockey wagering board.

Dallas was 12-6-2-2 at home and went over the total in 14 out of 22 home games, providing a stark contrast to the Rangers.  Dallas perked up somewhat in the second half of January as from January 17 through January 29 they went 4-1.  Dallas ranked just 17th overall on offense but defense was their biggest weakness as they ranked a poor 26th.
