Buffalo is 14-41 in their last 55 games overall and 12-39 in their last 51 games as an underdog while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games. The Rangers ate 5-2 in their last 7 games overall and 7-2 in their last 9 home games while the under is 5-2-1 in their last 8 Sunday games. Buffalo is 7-20 in the last 27 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that could be made for either side, but realistically, I’m not laying this juice with the Rangers and the uck line is dicey against a team with nothing to lose like Buffalo. On the other hand, the Sabres are hard to trust, but realistically, I think the plus money is worth taking a shot on here. The Sabres aren’t going to win many games back-to-back, but they looked good against Boston and I think they could pull it off again here.
