Sabres vs Rangers Prediction, Picks and NHL Betting Odds

Sunday afternoon in the NHL features a Sabres vs Rangers matchup that should have a very obvious ending. There is not one single reason as to why the Sabres should beat the Rangers in Madison Square Garden today. Beyond the fact the Rangers are the far superior team, and have this season’s Vezina Trophy lock between the pipes, is the fact that Buffalo has now played in four straight overtime games, with the most recent being decided in a shootout.

Let’s take a look at the betting odds, trends and picks for the game and give our Sabres vs Rangers prediction.

Sabres vs Rangers NHL Betting Preview and Prediction

NHL Regular Season
Buffalo Sabres (23-33-9, 11-17-4 Away) vs. New York Rangers (41-19-5, 21-6-3 Home)
Date: Sunday, March 27, 2022
Time: 5:00 p.m. EST
Venue: Madison Square Garden – New York, NY
Coverage: ESPN+

Goaltending: BUF: Craig Anderson (3.04/.904 – Expected) | NYR: Igor Shesterkin (2.32/.921 – Expected)

There are a few ways to look at and interpret the current OT streak that Buffalo is on. One way to look at it is to say the Sabres have been playing good hockey. Keeping games close, battling until the end and even winning three of four. While that is certainly true, all that extra hockey in such a short amount of time has to catch up with you at some point.

The Rangers have only played one game in the last five days. They will come into this game energized and confident off a 5-1 victory over the Penguins. The goaltending battle may be the largest deficit in the game, as the bottom-five scoring Sabres face a man in Shesterkin who has allowed just two goals or less in 12 of his last 15 starts. Buffalo will counter with the 40-year-old Craig Anderson, who has been serviceable but will likely not be able to keep up with New York’s offensive firepower.
