New York Islanders
For the Islanders, the current regular season is proving to be a failure. Despite all the difficulties, they tried to get back into playoff contention, and in mid-March they had a six-game winning streak, but the day before they had lost to a hopeless Philadelphia with a score of 1:2. The Islanders now sit just tenth in the Eastern Conference standings.
Ottawa is another team for whom the current regular season has been extremely disappointing. The Red and Black have occasionally struggled to keep up, but then they have suffered massive losses, making it impossible for them to put up any kind of fight for the playoffs. They've managed just two points in the last five meetings, beating Philadelphia with a score of 3:1, and they've lost the remaining four games in regulation time. Ottawa sits just 14th in the Eastern Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
The Islanders and Ottawa are completely different teams in terms of their capabilities. The Islanders are a much more experienced and skilled team, but they have failed in the regular season, making them unlikely to make the playoffs. In their encounter with the Senators, however, they need to take two points to recover from their defeat by Philadelphia the day before. This season, the New York team beat the Red and Black both times, so now we have to bet on the Islanders' victory with a handicap (-1.5) for 1.87.
In the previous ten head-to-head encounters, the opponents have scored 73 goals (7.30 on average per game). With this in mind, we suggest betting on a total over 5.5 for 1.90.
Mathew Barzal is a key player for the Islanders. The Canadian forward is in his sixth consecutive season with the Islanders, always showing good personal stats. In 51 meetings he scored 40 points (12 goals + 28 assists), making him the 24-year-old top scorer for the Blues and Oranges. Therefore, we suggest betting on Mathew Barzal Total Over 0.5 for 1.75.
