Nashville vs. NY Islanders,
12/17/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 8 - 3
Money Line: -140 NY Islanders
The set-up: The Predators come in off a 5-2 win over the Rangers last night and I think they'll have a hard time mustering up the same energy here vs. this stingy home side. New York has won three in a row and four of five, while last night's victory snapped a two-game slide for Nashville. The Isles only concede 2.32 GPG and I like them to take advantage of this content and now tired Predators side. Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne has lost two of his last three outings and in his last two trips to the next he's given up four goals in each.
The pick: The Isles beat the Sabres 3-2 in OT in their last outing. Goaltender Semyon Varlamov is 11-3-2 with a 2.24 GAA. Notd as well that the Predators are just 2-7 in their last nine in the second game of a back-to-back after winning the first one by two goals or more, while New York is 6-1 (+5.3 units) this year when playing on two days rest. Considering the situation and these trends, I believe we're getting super value on the home side in this one.
