2024 NHL playoffs: Rangers-Panthers Game 4 betting tips

P.K. Subban: 'No question' Jacob Trouba should have received major (0:43)

P.K. Subban reacts to Jacob Trouba's elbowing penalty in the second period vs. the Rangers. (0:43)

We finally saw some offense break out in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. Hidden just below the surface of the final score was a dominant performance by the Florida Panthers offense, with the New York Rangers more or less stealing a game thanks to some timely scoring and an all-world performance from Igor Shesterkin. Should we expect more of this in Game 4?

With the Panthers at home and with some time to chew on the disappointment of Game 3, I want to lean yes, but the odds are still suggesting a tighter affair. Opening lines have the Panthers favored and an under of 5.5 as the better bet.

That said, after what Florida did in the third period Sunday, I like some of the Panthers-heavy odds on offer.

New York Rangers at Florida Panthers

Amerant Bank Arena, Sunrise, Florida; Tuesday, 8 p.m. ET Watch live

  • Game 4 Puck line: Panthers -1.5 (+150); Rangers +1.5 (-180)

  • Game 4 Over/Under: 5.5 (Even/-120)

  • Game 4 Moneyline: Panthers (-175); Rangers (+150)

Sergei Bobrovsky to record a shutout (+900). A Panther shutout isn't my expected version of the Game 4 script, but these are nice odds for a shutout, and there is a world where Florida dominates this game. With the way the Panthers have shut down the elite Rangers such as Artemi Panarin, Mika Zibanejad, Chris Kreider and Adam Fox (zero goals and two assists between them), a shutout isn't out of the question here. There is also a Panthers To Win By Shutout at +750 among the Game Specials; obviously, this Bobrovsky bet is the one to take.

Artemi Panarin to record over 1.5 points and Igor Shesterkin to record over 29.5 saves and Rangers to win (+670). If you prefer the Rangers side, don't do this odds boost. Instead, take the suggestions here and build out your own parlay. The individual elements of the bet come with +180 odds for Panarin to go over 1.5 points, -115 for Shesterkin to top 29.5 saves and +150 for the Rangers moneyline. Doing those as a custom parlay would net +714 odds. The fact that Shesterkin has looked otherworldly -- and Panarin is due -- make it an appealing combo of bets if you don't buy into the Panthers revenge narrative. If the first two hit, a Rangers win is all but assured to complete the bet.

Evan Rodrigues total points over 0.5 (+170). With Rodrigues and Sam Bennett elevated to Matthew Tkachuk's line late in the game, and the way they were buzzing, it would not be a shock to see them back together for this one. I'll take Rodrigues sneaking in a point.

Florida Panthers vs. New York Rangers series winner: Florida Panthers (+140). If you picked the Panthers to win this series, the 2-1 series deficit going into a Game 4 at home should not concern you -- especially after watching the offense go like it did Sunday (83 to 36 in shot attempts; the Rangers had to block 37 shots!) in a loss. This doesn't feel like taking any bigger risk on the Panthers than you would have before Game 1, but at the moment there are favorable rewards on that same bet.
