PICK: williamhill @ NYI (-149)

DATE: March 5, 2020 - 7:30 PM



EXPERT: Matt Fargo

EVALUATION: Loss (-1341)


This is a play on the NEW YORK ISLANDERS as part of our NHL Thursday Hat Trick. The Islanders are reeling with four straight losses and they now sit into a tie for fifth place in the Eastern Conference with 78 points and they are just three points out of nine place. New York is 15-13-3 on the road which is nothing special but this is the fist game over the last six where it finally gets to face a non-playoff contender. The Islanders are 5-2 in their last seven games following a loss of three or more goals. Ottawa had a two-game winning streak snapped with a 7-3 loss in Pittsburgh and while the Senators have been decent at home, there is much more on the line on the other side. The Senators are 0-8 in their last eight games  after allowing five goals or more in their previous game. Here, we play against home underdogs of +100 to +150 in the second half of the season allowing 2.85+ gpg on the season, after scoring three goals or more in three straight games. This situation is 49-14 (77.8 percent) over the last five seasons. 9* (55) New York Islanders
