OVER Trend Cashing in FLA-NYI Matchup

Florida Panthers New York Islanders NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Offense was never an issue in contests between the New York Islanders and Florida Panthers and that has certainly continued into their first round series in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Panthers will look to draw even at the Barclays Center in Game 4 Wednesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in the Islanders' last four home games.
  • The Panthers are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Panthers are 4-0 SU in their last four games after a loss.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering both the Panthers and Islanders at -110 in moneyline markets for Wednesday’s Game 4 tilt in Brooklyn. As far as the total is concerned OVER 5 goals is -130 while UNDER 5 goals is +110.

OVER bets have gone 2-1 through the opening three games of the series but that has been a long-standing trend when these two meet. The total has gone 10-3 OVER/UNDER in the previous 13 meetings between the Panthers and Islanders, including the opening three games here.

Through three games, there has been an average of 6.67 goals scored per game. Panthers winger Reilly Smith has been a revelation in the opening round. Smith scored 50 points in 82 games during the regular season, but has paced the Panthers with eight points (four goals, four assists) through three games versus the Isles.

The Isles skated to a 4-3 overtime win in Game 3 thanks to a Thomas Hickey goal in the extra frame, taking a 2-1 series lead into Wednesday’s Game 4. The Isles haven’t won a postseason series since 1993, but a victory in front of the home fans would give them a commanding 3-1 series lead and all the momentum to buck that trend.

If you're going with the New York Islanders in this one, they were listed as moneyline of -105 on most NHL hockey betting menus (such as Bovada) early today for Wednesday's contest. The over-under total was at 5 earlier at Bet365.
