Pick
NYI (-120) @ pinnacle

The New York Islanders could advance to their first conference finals since the 1992-93 season with a win today over Philadelphia. The Isles offense is led by Anthony Beauvillier with seven goals while Josh Bailey has added 11 helpers. As a team, the Islanders are putting up 3.31 goals a game on the offensive end, and on the defensive end, they are giving up just 1.69 goals. On special teams, the are scoring on 17.8 percent of their power plays and they are killing off 78.4 percent of their penalties. 

 

The Philadelphia Flyers are in a must-win situation or the season is over. As a team, they are putting up 2.23 goals a game and on the defensive end, they are giving up 2.23. On special teams, they are scoring on 9.1 percent of their power plays and are killing off 79 percent of their penalties. The offense is led by Jakub Voracek with four goals while Kevin Hayes has added seven helpers. 

 

The Islanders are 7-1 in the last 8 meetings. The favorite is 53-19 in the last 72 meetings. 

 

The New York Islanders have been tough on the defensive end. They have been one of the best teams in the bubble and have dominated the Flyers as of late. The Flyers could come out and take this game but I don't see it. I look for the Isles to advance after today's game.

 

Play on the New York Islanders. This is a 7* play.

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.
