Pick
Under 5.5 (-140) @ bet365

This is a 10* on UNDER

Tampa Bay missed out on its first try to finish the Islanders, so here goes “round two.” It was a 2-1 win for the Islanders in Game 5, the kind of final score we’ve become much more accustomed to seeing from them this postseason. After all, NY came into the series having given up the fewest number of goals per game (1.94) the first two rounds. In the two games where they have faced elimination in the playoffs, the Islanders have given up a total of one goal. Remember they shut out the Flyers 4-0 in Game 7 of the semifinal round. The bad news though is they only got off 24 shots Tuesday in a game that went to two overtimes. That probably won’t cut it again. In four of the five games in this series, the Islanders have been held to two goals or fewer. They are 48-21-5 the L74 games as an underdog. The Lightning are 11-5-3 Under the L18 games overall. You can’t discount the injury to Brayden Point. TB’s two lowest scoring games of the series have come with him out of the lineup. His status is questionable for Game 6. Play on UNDER

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
