Market Report for Wednesday, March 30th
There are just six games on Wednesday, and I have one small early bet.
Let’s look at things from a betting perspective:
New York Rangers (-155) at Detroit Red Wings (+ 135)
New York picked up a 3-2 win in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, and now they’ll face the team the Penguins just defeated 11-2 on Wednesday. The Red Wings are arguably the worst team in the Eastern Conference right now, having lost 13 of their last 17 games, and the Rangers are almost certainly going to go with Alex Georgiev in goal since the team is probably not looking to run Igor Shesterkin into the ground before the playoffs. Some shops (like Circa) are hanging as low as -140, and I’m curious how low it’s going to go. Georgiev has posted a .896 save percentage and has cost the team approximately 5.4 goals above expected (according to Evolving Hockey) since the start of the season. The Red Wings are a bad hockey team, but the Rangers’ biggest strength has been Shesterkin’s play in the crease, and when you take that away, they’re not a very good hockey team either.
Notes: Rangers’ forward Ryan Strome was not in the lineup on Tuesday. He is regarded as day-to-day after leaving Sunday’s game with an injury.
