My last dice roll went 0-1
Season record 17-11, +8.43 units.
Let's look at who I like from tonight's NHL slate:
(all lines shown are from DraftKings Sportsbook)
New York Islanders ML (-140)/Play 2.8 units to win 2 units
The Islanders are playing their best hockey of the season, going 3-0-1 in their last four. Two of these wins were dominant performances over Boston and Pittsburgh. The Islanders have put themselves within two points of first place in the Eastern division with a strong power play that scores 25% of the time. New Jersey is the worst team in the NHL, killing off just 62% when in man-down situations. Another key advantage New York has is puck possession. The Islanders win faceoffs at the fifth best rate in the league, while the Devils rank last in this category. I see the dice roll getting back on track with an Islanders win tonight.
Best of luck and enjoy the NHL schedule today.
