Panthers-Islanders Trading Wins

John Tavares New York Islanders NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

The only series that does not have a chance of ending Friday night is out East as the Florida Panthers host the New York Islanders in Game 5. The two teams have exchanged wins through four games and if that trend continues Friday in Sunrise, the Islanders will hold a 3-2 edge when the final horn blows.

Shark Bites
  • OVER has cashed in eight of the Panthers’ last 10 home games.
  • The Panthers are 5-2 SU in their last seven games with one day off in between games.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Islanders’ last five games after a loss.

Online shop Bovada is currently offering the Panthers at -160 in moneyline markets while the Islanders can be had at +140. The total is tabbed at 5 with OVER priced at -120 and UNDER at EVEN odds.

The Islanders, who have won games two and four after losing games one and three, had rebounded from losses quite well even prior to the postseason. They have gone 5-1 SU in their last six games in that spot but there is more on the line in Sunrise Friday as they can head back to Brooklyn with the series lead.

The Panthers have been absolutely pelting Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss with rubber so far this series. The Panthers are second in the playoffs with 36.3 shots per game, but Greiss has been up to the challenge, stopping 133 of 144 for a save percentage of .924.

OVER had been a hot trend when these two teams meet entering this series, but, much like the teams exchanging wins, the totals have rotated as games one and three have eclipsed the closing number, but games two and four remained UNDER. In the last 14 meetings between the Isles and Panthers, OVER has gone 10-4.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick
