All eyes will be on the NFL draft Thursday night, but bettors shouldn’t pass up value with 10 games on the NHL schedule. If you choose to follow along, compare the projected line to the odds the sportsbook is offering, and if you see a significant difference, ensure that there are no surprises and bet accordingly. Here are some tips.
New York Islanders at New York Rangers
The Rangers still have a chance to make the playoffs, and at the very least, this is a team looking to play meaningful games until the end of the regular reason. The Islanders will have home ice when the teams meet again Saturday, but the Rangers have the edge here. Goaltender Igor Shesterkin will start every Rangers game that’s not a back-to-back, and that’s a positive.
Projected line: Rangers -122
