N.Y. Islanders +170 over BOSTON

6:38 PM EST. OT Included. Although we have the Islanders in the series, it’s not going to deter us from coming back on them here with this absurd take-back. We’re not sure why the market is so unimpressed by the Isles or so impressed by the Bruins but whatever the case, we’re the beneficiary of a price that is out of whack. 

After Game 1 it looked like the market was correct, as the Bruins dominated play en route to a 5-2 win. However, in true Islander fashion, they bounced back with an impressive overtime victory in Game 2 and then they followed that up with a hard-luck overtime loss in Game 3 on a fluke goal by Brad Marchand. The Islanders would bounce back with a near flawless third period in Game 4 en route to a 4-1 win. It is the Islanders and not the Bruins that are gaining momentum and that won’t go away.  

The Islanders and Bruins have been neck-and-neck over the past three contests. Even if the B’s are better on paper, the Islanders have, time and again, proven to be one of the best teams in the NHL at turning games against better opposition into coin flips. We have to trust that the B’s are a lot more nervous than the Isles but most importantly, it is the price that convinces us we have to play the Isles. Boston cannot be a 2-1 favorite against a team that has been just as good as them the entire season and well into the second round. Big overlay.
