The Lightning Have the Islanders Figured out

The Tampa Bay Lightning can make it seven wins in a row in their head-to-head matchup with the New York Islanders when they stop in Brooklyn for the first of their five straight road games. The Isles have lost seven of their last nine and things won’t get much easier as they play the Penguins, Ducks, Sharks and Kings in their next four after tonight.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the Islanders' last 5 games as home underdogs.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Lightning's last 4 games as a moneyline favorite of -137 or less.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 3 of the Lightning's last 4 games against the Islanders.

Tampa has not posted a consecutive win or loss in its last six games but has three straight UNDERs if you’re looking for a solid trend. The Islanders, however, have been getting wildly inconsistent performances from their goaltenders and the total has stayed UNDER in just two of their last 10 games.

This is the first matchup in these teams’ last 10 games where the road team has been the favorite, showing how confident bookmakers are in the Lightning tonight. If you bet pucklines, this may be a good opportunity to get some value on an away line.

In the last six games between these teams, which have all been Lightning wins, the average score is 4.17 for TB and just 1.33 for NYI.
