Pick Details

(65) NY Islanders vs. Boston (66) 7:00 PM | Fri, Apr 16 2021
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1330) - Final Total 3
Over 5 (-133) @ Betvictor


Fatigue is an interesting "situational" factor that handicappers almost always take into account.

We're closing in on the final stages of the regular season and each of these team's is coming off a game just last night, as the Bruins rolled over the Islanders 4-1.

That game went UNDER the total. So why will tonight's game lead to a higher-scoring contest?

Both teams struggle with offensive consistency this year and each rank among the best defensively.

However note that the Isles have seen the total go OVER the number in seven of their last 11 in trying to revenge a road loss vs. an opponent in which they were held to one or less goals in.

Boston is desperate to make up ground against the Islanders and everything points to a much more wide-open offensive contest in the rematch in Boston on Friday night.

The play is the OVER.

Good luck, NP


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.
We are constantly evaluating online sportsbooks and line feeds to ensure accuracy with our Expert picks. We typically have between 5-10 legal and reputable sportsbooks for our handicappers to select lines from. They are required to select the current line from these featured books so authenticity can always be confirmed – no stale lines!
