The New York Rangers have fallen off a cliff over the last week or so and while they should turn things around eventually, I’m not eager to back them in the favorite role on the road. The Detroit Red Wings have been competitive in nearly every game this season, and their defensive effort has been impressive. I’m not laying juice with the Rangers in their current form. Give me the Red Wings and the plus money.
