New York Rangers Odds

New York sports betting handle lags

The New York Rangers have gone through a rebuild the last few seasons, but the outlook is beginning to look clearer. Especially now.

With Alexis Lafreniere, the first overall pick in the 2020 draft, joining a young core that includes Artemi Panarin, Mika Zibanejad, Igor Shesterkin, and Adam Fox, the Rangers advanced to the Eastern Conference Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning before falling in six games. As a result, New York missed out on advancing to the franchise’s first Stanley Cup since 2014 for a shot at winning their first championship — and fifth overall — since 1994.

Rangers betting lines explained

Below is an example of a typical betting line for a hockey game you could expect to see online, such as at PointsBet online sportsbook:

TeamMoneylinePuck lineTotal
NY Rangers+100+1.5 (-250)Over 5.5 (-110)
NY Islanders-120-1.5 (+220)Under 5.5 (-110)
  • Moneyline: When you bet a team on the moneyline, you are simply betting on them to win the game. The odds on the moneyline are set based on the probability of the team winning that game. Margin of victory doesn’t matter. In the above example, if you bet $100 on the Rangers then you would win a profit of $100. To win a profit of $100 on the Islanders, you’d need to bet $120.
  • Puck line: The puck line is hockey’s version of point spread betting. It closely resembles run-line betting in baseball. In sports like football and basketball, the spread varies based on the skill level of the teams. In hockey, the puck line is almost always 1.5 because of the lower-scoring games and the variance present in the sport. Usually, betting the favorite to cover the puck line is a plus-money payout.
  • Total: Similar to other sports, betting over or under on the total is a popular way to bet on hockey games. You simply decide whether the teams will combine to score more or fewer goals than the listed number. Most hockey totals fall in the range between 5.5 goals and 6.5 goals.

Rangers Vegas odds vs. online odds

The sportsbooks in Las Vegas have been setting lines for a long time. Only recently have other states been legally allowed to join them. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that online sportsbook odds found in NY very closely mirror the odds we see in Vegas.

Vegas has mastered the art of setting balanced lines. They use computer models and analytics to set their lines and then adjust them slightly based on news and public perception.

Online sportsbooks in NY use similar models and calculations to set their lines.

The main difference comes in public perception. If the Rangers are playing a game, the perception here at home will be different than the perception in Las Vegas. This might lead to small line adjustments at times.

Hometown teams might have their odds adjusted as they are likely going to be a popular team to bet on. Sportsbooks might shade a line to avoid having too much liability on one side of the action.

Rangers live betting

Live betting is a section of the market that both sportsbooks and bettors love. Live betting means betting on a game after it has already started with the odds adjusted for what has already happened.

If the first period has no goals but you expect the scoring to pick up, you can bet the live over. The total might have dropped from 6.5 pre-game to a new total of 5, meaning you’d get a better line.

You can also bet on:

  • Which team you think will end up winning the game
  • Which team will win the next period
  • Which team will score the next goal
  • etc.

The easiest way to place a live bet is through a NY sportsbook app. You can bet while out running errands or simply sitting on your couch and enjoying the game.

Rangers prop betting

Prop betting is betting on certain things to happen within the game. Some examples of props include:

  • Period bets: Bet on which team will win the period you bet on. You can also bet over/under the total for that period. If you can only watch one period of a game, this is a good way to get in on the action.
  • First player to score: Bet on which player you think will score the first goal of the game. The payouts are great on this bet, with even the best scorers in the game going off at odds of +500 or better. Some defensemen or bottom line forwards can go off near 30/1.
  • Over/Under points: Bet on how many points (goals and assists) a player will score in a game. Oftentimes, lines are set at 0.5 points, but some star players line is set at 1.5.
