NHL wagering fans have seen the Isles have one of the league’s worst straight up records at 16-31-3-2 but that is contrasted by the Islanders record of 34-18 against the hockey lines. Because the Islanders are such a bad team they have virtually no NHL wagering appeal with the general betting public.
In order to attract money their direction the line makers have to boost up the hockey lines with extra add-on value for the Islanders which has ended up having the effect of making them one of the best bargains available in NHL wagering.
The Islanders simply are getting a better NHL wagering price than what is actually merited because so few gamblers want to take them. Those that have had the nerve to do so, however, have made a nice NHL wagering profit as one win on the Islanders can make up for many losses.
The Isles have also played better as of late. From January 21 through February 7 they went on a NHL wagering run in which they got the cash in four out of six games with five of those six games having gone under the total.
The road has not been a good NHL wagering spot for the Isles, however, as they had a record of 6-19-1-1 as a visitor with a road over/under mark of 15-11-1 over the total. The New Jersey Devils have had another textbook season against the hockey lines.
The Devils had an overall NHL wagering mark of 33-17-1-2 straight up and were a profitable 30-23 against the board. The Devils have long been one of the most consistent teams in NHL wagering and are strong on both ends of the ice. The Devils ranked 8th overall on offense while ranking 4th overall on defense.
A major NHL wagering asset has been goaltender Scott Clemmensen who had a goals against average of 2.36 and a save percentage of .918. Zach Parise led the team in scoring with 30 goals and 31 assists.
