(37) NY Islanders vs. Tampa Bay (38) 8:00 PM | Wed, Sep 09 2020
Sport: NHL | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Win (800) - Final Score TB 2 at NYI 1
Pick
1.5 NYI (-170) @ bet365

The set-up: I had a play on the Lightning in Game 1 and while I obviously didn't predict such a massive beatdown, obviously I'm going to take it! That said, the playoffs are all about making adjustments and I think that the Isles will calmly turn the page on that awful effort and return to their recent dominant form. Tampa is poised for a mental letdown here and I think the Isles can take advantage.

The pick: Note as well that the Islanders are 8-3 in their last 11 after allowing eight or more goals in a loss to an opponent in their last outing. Outright win?! Of course. But in a game which I see being decided late or even in extra time, I'm going to lay the price for the extra 1.5 goals of insurance.

The is an 8* COACH'S CORNER on the ISLANDERS on the PUCK LINE.

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.
