St. Louis vs. NY Rangers, 03/03/2020 19:00 EDT, Score: 3 - 1

Money Line: +127 NY Rangers

Sportsbook: SportsBetting

Result: Loss

The set-up: After winning seven straight and opening up a three-game road trip here, I believe the defending champs finally have a letdown in the Big Apple tonight. New York plays with revenge here after it fell 5-2 in St. Louis earlier in the season. New York had won five in a row, before back-to-back losses to the Flyers in a home and home set. The Rangers still have a shot at the playoffs, but they no longer have the luxury to look past anyone in the jam-packed Metropolitan. After a 4-3 shootout win over the Stars last time out though, I think the Blues do indeed finally have a letdown here vs. this desperate home side. Situationally everything sets up beautifully for the home side here.

The pick: The Rangers are only six points behind third place Pittsburgh and note that they're 11-7 (+6.7 units) after a loss by two goals or more in their previous game. The stage is set for the minor upset in this one.

10* ULTIMATE SHOCKER on the New York Rangers.
