New York Rangers vs. Carolina Hurricanes

Thursday, May 09, 2024 – 07:00 PM ET at PNC Arena

Third Time Lucky

The first two games of this series ended 4-3 and the total went over on both occasions, although it’s possible we’ll see 7+ goals tonight, we are hoping it’s going to be 3rd time lucky for under bettors in this series, but we are playing with caution.

The Carolina Hurricanes are a strong under team, and both teams have combined to be two of the top 8 defenses in the league. The previous two meetings between these teams at the PNC Arena produced 1 and 3 goals respectively.

In Stanley Cup futures, we look at the odds for teams as top contenders vie for hockey glory.

The Pick

Now that the Hurricanes are back on home ice, let’s hope they can keep the scoring down like they did in the regular season having seen the 2nd most amount of home games go under the total.

However, we are playing with caution, we’ll take the Under 6 goals line just in case we get another goal feast between these two teams. We like the current juice at -135 but wouldn’t lay any more than -140.
