The under is 18-8-1 in Rangers last 27 overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Penguins last 4 overall. The Rangers are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Pittsburgh and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The New York Rangers aren't the sexiest team in the world, but they continue to find ways to win and have played some of their better hockey on the road. With that said, the Pittsburgh Penguins are the better team, they're playing the better hockey right now and you usually don't get these sort of prices with them at home. Usually you have to lay a bit more juice with the Penguins on their home ice. Give me the Penguins and the reasonable price.
