How did the Rangers do last season?

The Rangers finished last season with a 37-28-5 record, which was good for 7th place in the Metropolitan division. They were invited to the NHL return-to-play tournament as the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Rangers were eliminated in the qualifying round by the Carolina Hurricanes in a three-game sweep. After being eliminated, the Rangers won the draft lottery and were awarded the first overall pick.

The second half of the Rangers season was a marked improvement over their first half. The Rangers were surging and making a playoff push before the regular season was suspended due to the pandemic.

The turn-around coincided with the promotion of goaltender Igor Shesterkin to the active roster. Shesterkin is a highly regarded goaltending prospect who posted a .932 save percentage in his 12 games.

Offensively, New York was led by Artemi Panarin who was a contender for the Hart Trophy as league’s MVP. Mika Zibanejad also had a career year.

Rangers betting lines explained

Below is an example of a typical betting line for a hockey game:

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 New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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 in New Jersey 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 pregame 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, or which team will score the next goal. The easiest way to place a live bet is through an app. You can bet while running errands or sitting on your couch, as long as you are in New Jersey.

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.
