They are favored in this Wednesday game against the Islanders and will likely be the choice for gamblers making an NHL bet at Sbgglobal.
New York Road Trip
The Islanders are beginning a five-day, three-game road trip in Anaheim. The Islanders will also face the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings. The Islanders are not likely to win every game on the road trip but if they are to steal a game it could be the first one. They have been competitive in this series against the Ducks so the Islanders might be worth a shot at plus money on Wednesday.
The Ducks and Islanders play some close games. They have split the last four games and three of those four have been one goal games. The last time they played in Anaheim it was last season when the Ducks pulled out a 5-4 win. That is the only meeting in Anaheim between the two teams in the past few years.
Anaheim at Home
The Ducks have been great at home this season with five wins so they are going to be favored against the Islanders. The only concern in this game is that the Ducks had to play last night in San Jose while the Islanders were sitting and waiting in Anaheim. Playing on back-to-back nights is not always easy so even with the Ducks at home this is not a guaranteed win.
There is not much to like about the Islanders. They are 17-64 in their last 81 road games and they are 1-6 in their last 7 vs. the Pacific. The Islanders are 0-7 in their last 7 overall.
