-1.5 TB (170) @ Fanduel

 

The New York Islanders had everything against them in Game One of their Eastern Conference Finals and it showed. First, they were coming off a tough game seven. Second, they had to travel on their day off to the bubble in Edmonton from the bubble in Toronto. Finally, they had to play a well rested Tampa Bay Lightning team. All three things came together for an 8-2 loss for the Islanders. Brayden Point opened the scoring just 1:14 into the game for Tampa Bay but the Isles got that one back when Jordan Eberle scored 3:19 later. From there it was all downhill for the Islanders. Andrei Vasilevskiy got the win in goal for Tampa Bay after stopping 22 of 24 shots while his counterpart, Thomas Greiss gave up 3 goals on 9 shots before being pulled.

New York is 4-13 in their last 17 games as an underdog. Tampa Bay is 37-14 in their last 51 games overall. New York is 4-13 in the last 17 meetings between these two teams. Everything lined up against the Islanders and they were blasted. They should play better in this game but Tampa Bay seems to have gotten things going since their first-round series. Tampa Bay has that look of a team that will win it all. Take Tampa on the puck-line to maximize value.

Play on Tampa Bay.on the puck-line Minus 1.5 goals. This is a 7* play.

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.
