Our expert's Monday NHL bet: Rangers to win

We're back from the NHL All-Star break and even though there are only two games on Monday night, I wanted to let you know which team I'm most confident in betting on in our NHL bet.

Central Division leaders the Colorado Avalanche travel to New York to take on the metro's best team, the New York Rangers.

These two teams should put on quite a show if both powerhouses make the playoffs.

The Avalanche enter this contest with a season record of 32-14-3. On the other hand, the Rangers also have an impressive record on the season, which is 30-16-3. Today's top picks are powered by one of my NHL betting systems called The Hot Scorers.

Using these rules, the New York Rangers are my best bet at odds of around 1.87.

Good profits

Please allow me to take a minute to explain the rules of the Hot Scorers betting angle. If the away team has scored four or more goals in each of their last three games without necessarily winning, then bet against them. That's it! Compliance with these rules has led to good profits for many years.

The Avalanche have won their last three games in very convincing fashion, scoring more than four goals in each. On January 20, they won 7-4 in Philadelphia before picking up two home wins against the Capitals and Kings, 6-2 and 5-1, respectively. According to the rules we have to make them disappear in today's game.

The Rangers are coming off a huge 7-2 win over the Senators. Both teams go into this competition very rested. The Avalanche last played on January 26th and the Rangers last played on January 27th.

Hard at Madison Square Garden

Madison Square Garden is a difficult venue for many teams, and the Rangers elevate their game when they play in front of their fans. The Rangers have a 15-7 record at home this season, while Colorado has a 12-9-3 record on the road. As a result, the Avalanche are not as impressive on the road as they are at home.

The Rangers didn't have a particularly good January. However, the rest and the playoff race should present a very different Rangers team in February as they look to stay at the top of the Metropolitan Division. The last time the Rangers faced the Avalanche was last season when they earned a very narrow and hard-fought 2-1 victory.

The Rangers may also be motivated by the news that key defender Ryan Lindgren is returning from injury. However, Jacob Trouba will not be in the squad due to a suspension.

There is no doubt that this will be a great game. This is a match that will showcase the great skills of some of the NHL's elite players. The home arena should be enough to get the Rangers past the Avalanche in this game. The Rangers should win this game.
