Buffalo is 7-19 in their last 26 games overall and 18-62 in their last 70 road games while the under is 7-1-1 in their last 9 games overall. Bew York is 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 7-16 in their last 23 games overall while the under is 10-3 in their last 13 games as a favorite. Buffalo is 8-21 in the last 29 meetings between these two teams.
The Buffalo Sabres would be a bit easier to make a case for if the game was in Buffalo, but the Sabres have been a profitable road fade for a while now and it’s just not looking like it’s going to change any time soon. New York has been inconsistent in their own right, but they usually play better at home like a lot of teams to and Buffalo like I said isn’t an option on the road, so I’ll lay it and play it with the New York Rangers in this one.
