Let’s look at some betting trends for this match-up. NY Islanders are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games and 6-3 SU in their last 9 games on the road. NY Islanders are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing Anaheim and 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Anaheim. However, Anaheim is 10-2 SU in its last 12 games and 4-1 SU in its last 5 games at home. New York has the third worst defense in the league, allowing 3.5 goals per game. Also, New York allows the third most power play goals in the league with 1.1 per game. Anaheim has the third most power play chances in the league at 4.1 per game. Anaheim has the second stingiest defense in the league at 1.8 goals per game.
No question that the Ducks are one of the better teams in the NHL. They have looked really good so far this season. However, tonight I don’t believe they will be one of the best teams in the league. No official word has came out just yet, but Anaheim could be down to their third different goalie this season. Not to mention Anaheim will be without three other defense men. As the trends showed Anaheim has been great this season defending their opponents. However, with the key injuries I believe the Islanders will get their scoring chances tonight. 68% of all Off-Shore bettors are siding with the Ducks tonight. Yet the line has moved from 1.57 to 1.67. Sharp money is on the Islanders and that is who we will back tonight.
