NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning at New York Islanders

Tampa Bay at NY Islanders -110 O/U 5 
Recommendation: New York

The New York Islanders head back home to Brooklyn for Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Isles picked up a 5-3 road win in Game 1, chasing Lightning goalie Ben Bishop out of the contest as he allowed four goals on just 13 shots. Tampa rallied back to win Game 2 by a score of 4-1. Both contests have been very physical at both ends of the ice and the Islanders have done well to draw penalties and score on the power play this postseason. New York has scored at least one goal on the man-advantage in both games of this series and in five of its last six games overall. They’ve also gone 12-6 in their last 18 games at the Barclays Center and have won five of their last eight games overall while Tampa Bay has lost eight of their last nine road meetings against the Isles and four of their last six games overall as a visitor. The Lightning went off around -160 series favorites but it’s clear this is a far more even matchup. To get the Islanders at a pick ‘em on their home ice offers solid betting value.
