With a history dating back nearly 100 years, the New York Rangers are one of America’s oldest professional sports teams. Dating back to the 2004-05 NHL lockout, the New York Rangers have failed to make the postseason only three times, making one of the most successful franchises in recent NHL history.

In the 2022-23 NHL season, the Rangers finished the regular season with a record of 82-84, good enough to clinch the #3 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Unfortunately for Rangers’ fans, the appearance was brief, losing to the rival New Jersey Devils in seven games.

The 2023-24 regular season has picked up just where the last one left off, as they remain one of the best teams in the NHL. Led by left-winger Artemi Panarin who is one of the most prolific scorers in the league today, the Rangers’ are boosted by a strong scoring presence that includes Vincent Trocheck (C), Chris Kreider (LW), and Mika Zibanejad (C). In the net, Igor Shesterkin is the Rangers starting goalie and is one of the best in the Metropolitan division.

Bet types that are available for the New York Rangers

New sports bettors might think there is only one way to bet on NHL hockey, but the factor of the matter is there are more than a few. Below is a quick example of just a few of the bet types that are available for the New York Rangers when it comes to wagering.

  • Puck Line: Another way to say the “Point Spread” in other sports, a Puck Line refers to how many goals oddsmakers in NJ expect a team to win (or lose) by. If a team has a positive sign (+) next to their odds, they’re expected to lose the game (underdogs) while the negative sign (-) represents the team expected to win the game (favorites).

Example: New York Rangers (-1.5) vs. Seattle Kraken (+1.5). In this scenario, the Rangers have to beat the Western Conference’s Kraken by at least two goals for Rangers’ Puck Line wagers to be considered winners. A score of Rangers 4-2 would make the final score, for betting purposes, Rangers 4 Kraken 3.5, thus making the Rangers winners against the spread (Puck Line).

  • Moneyline: Betting on a moneyline is simply betting on which team will win the game, at the given odds. If a team has a negative number (favorite) listed next to their odds, you’ll have to risk more to win less, versus a positive number (underdog) representing you’ll have to bet less to win more.

Example: New York Rangers (-165) vs. New York Islanders (+150). In this scenario, the Rangers are favorites against their cross-town rivals Islanders, with a bettor having to lay $165 to win $100 on the Rangers. In this example, the better would have $265 returned to their account ($165 risked + $100 won).

  • Total: This is the total number of goals expected by oddsmakers scored in a game, no matter which team is the winner. Said another way, the total is arrived at by combining the number of goals each team in a given game scores.

Example: New York Rangers vs. Boston Bruins (O/U 6). In this scenario, there would have to be more than six total goals scored between the Rangers and Bruins for the “Over” to be graded a winner. If there were less than six goals scored (i.e. Rangers 4 Bruins 1, Rangers 2 Bruins 0, etc.), the “Under” would be graded a winner. If there were exactly six goals scored, the bet would be graded a “Push” and your risked funds would be returned.

  • Futures: A bet on a “Futures” market is betting on the outcome of a season-long wager such as who will win a certain NHL Award, the Stanley Cup, Conference, Division, Regular Season wins, and more. A futures wager that can be made before the NHL season starts, as well as throughout the season when the teams are not on the ice.

Example: New York Rangers to Win the Eastern Conference (+900). In this scenario, you are making a bet on the Rangers to win the Eastern Conference and head to the Stanley Cup Finals. If you make a $100 wager at these odds, you’ll win $1,000 if the Rangers win the Eastern Conference ($100 risked + $900 won).
