New York Islanders
The Islanders failed in the first half of the current regular season for a variety of reasons. Now, the success of one of the main contenders for the title is not believable at all, and in the last three meetings, they got only one win. The Islanders are currently sitting in tenth place in the Eastern Conference standings, already 17 points behind the top-8.
Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus isn't exactly the favourite of the season, as the team has a very average squad, and in the offseason they changed their head coach, who needs time to build a new team. The Jackets are not failing and are playing a very entertaining game. In their previous six meetings, they managed only one win and five losses, which did not prevent them from remaining in ninth place in the Eastern Conference standings, but they are still a long way from the playoffs.
Expert Betting Tips
The Islanders and Columbus are neighbours in the Eastern Conference standings, unlikely to qualify for the playoffs. While the Islanders dropped the first half of the regular season but are now performing relatively well, the Jackets have slowed down recently, losing four games in a row. The New York club won the last two head-to-head encounters. Therefore, we suggest betting on the Islanders' victory for 1.595.
The Islanders and Columbus are neighbours in the Eastern Conference standings, but they play differently. While the Islanders are more focused on defence, with only 359 goals (5.52 goals per game average) in 65 games, the Jackets are more focused on offence, with 469 goals (7.00 goals per game average) in 67 games. Therefore, we suggest betting on a total over 6.5 for 2.216.
Brock Nelson continues to fight for the title of the Islanders' most effective player. The 30-year-old American has played in a total of 56 games this season, scoring 48 points (32 goals + 16 assists). Now the hockey player is in great shape, so it is worth considering the bet on Brock Nelson total over 0.5 for 1.55.
