The Rangers are 8-19 in their last 27 games as an underdog and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The Islanders are 43-21 in their last 64 home games and 20-8 in their last 28 overall. The under is 18-7-2 in Rangers last 27 road games. The under is 7-0-1 in Islanders last 8 overall. The Rangers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in New York and 8-17 in the last 25 meetings. The underdog is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings. The road team is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The New York Rangers continue to surprise folks with their play, and they're playing well enough lately to be given a look in the underdog role here. The Rangers have also won three of the five meetings against the Islanders this season. However, as I've said many times in the past, the Islanders are a team I blindly back a lot and it's going to take a really poor stretch for me to get off the bandwagon. At home, in a rivalry game, give me the Islanders and the reasonable juice.
