The New York Rangers are the better team and should be favored at home, but they’ve also been a bit disappointing up to this point and their defensive effort has come and gone. The Arizona Coyotes aren’t a team I’m willing to get behind with much confidence, especially on the road, but we’re getting nearly 3 times our money here. The Rangers should be favored, but not by this much given their current from. Give me the plus money.
