Predators vs. Islanders Pick

NHL Predictions: Will the Islanders win at home vs. the Predators? 3/27/17

Can the Nashville Predators pick up an important road win when they take on the New York Islanders tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Predators are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -120 to prevail, while the Islanders are listed with odds of +100 to win. The over/under total for the game is listed at 5.5 goals. These two are meeting for the first time this season, but the Islanders have won four of their last five against the Predators.

Nashville is currently 38-25-11 on the season and have 87 points. They are third in the Central Division, but seventh in the Western Conference and only 1 point ahead of eighth-place St. Louis. The Preds haven’t been a great road team this season, going 15-17-4. They have won three straight coming into today, but all were at home. Still, they have won six of their last seven and scored at least three goals in five of their last seven.

The Islanders are 35-27-12 on the season and they have 82 points right now. They sit fifth in the Metropolitan Division, but are just two points back of a Wild Card spot in the Easter Conference. The Islanders have been tough at home, going 20-11-7 this season. They are coming off a 2-1 loss at home to the Bruins, but had won two straight prior to that.

Bet on Predators vs. Islanders

The Islanders may need this win more than the Predators. Nashville is comfortably in a playoff spot right now and would need a big letdown to fall out over these last few weeks. The Islanders are on the outside looking in in the East and must get this win at home tonight. The Preds haven’t been a team you can trust on the road and I don’t like them as a road favorite. Take the home dog with their 20 home wins.
