The Rangers are 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games and 7-2 in their last 9 games following a win. The Sabres are 2-6 in their last 8 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Rangers last 6 overall. The over is 10-4 in Sabres last 14 overall. The Rangers are 11-4 in the last 15 meetings in Buffalo and 37-17 in the last 54 meetings. The favorite is 44-17 in the last 61 meetings. The home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The New York Rangers continue to string together wins, and they should like their chances against a Sabres team that can't get out of their own way. Playing at home hasn't helped the Sabres much these days, either. The Rangers also have beat up on the Sabres over the years, which includes a great deal of success in Buffalo. I'll lay the reasonable juice with the Rangers on the road.
