New York Islanders

Nashville Predators


NY Islanders Point Spread

Over 6.0 Game Totals

Money Line Pick

Both sides are having winning seasons, but Nashville is in a dog fight just to make the playoffs, while the Islanders are currently the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference. As of Wednesday night, Nashville are 5 points behind Arizona for the last spot in the Western Conference. Remember, there are still a handful of months to play, but the Predators need the wins now to help their position. They have lost two games in a row, but now returning home should give them confidence to turn things around. Although, Nashville is only 11-11-4 at home this season, while the Islanders are 15-9-2 on the road. With the Predators struggling, I would still lean to the better team catching plus money.

Over Under Pick

We have two pretty good offenses here, which has me looking to the over. The Predators average 3.2 goals per game, while New York averages 3 goals. However, Nashville’s defense has really let them down, allowing 3.27 goals per game. As of late, both defenses are allowing an average of 3 goals per game (last 5 games), so I look for the offense to be heavy here. The over is 5-0 in the last five head to head meetings as well. I would not really be looking to bet this, but the over is the way I would look.
