Rangers vs. Stars Prediction: In Igor I Trust (10/29)

Sweatpants Jesus

The 3-3-2 New York Rangers travel to Dallas to take on the 5-2-1 Stars in a Saturday midday battle.

The Stars have been great to start the season, and are looking to continue their good form against the Rangers.

Joe Pavelski has been awesome for the Stars, Jamie Benn has been consistent and has been great as well.

Goalie Jake Oettinger blossomed into a star in the playoffs last year and has continued his excellent form to start the season.

The Rangers have been very good as well, with Mika Zibanejad playing some of the best hockey of his career and G Igor Shesterkin has been great as well to start the year.

In a midday clash, who will come out on top on Saturday in Dallas?

Prediction

The Stars have been fantastic to start the season and they are great at home. But the Rangers have been equally as good, even if their record isn’t quite as good.

I love the value on the Rangers in this game and am willing to ride with the visitors and the value.

Best Bet

Ranger ML (-102)


Props

Mika Zibanejad o3.5 SOGs (+120)

I think Mika Zibanejad is my favorite hockey player that isn’t a Nashville Predator.

And this season, he has started on absolute fire.

He has hit his shots in 5 of 8 to start the season and in 3 straight games. He is matchup proof at this point and at +120 value, this is a no brainer, easy bet.

1st period under 1.5 goals (+100)

I am not sure why this is plus money with 2 of the best netminders in the league going toe-to-toe today.

Especially in a early day game, I could see both these offenses needing a period to get going.

For plus money, I am going to trust Oettinger and Shesterkin to come out strong and hold the lines for a period.

Enjoy your Saturday and this game!
