New York Islanders at Dallas Stars Betting Preview

The New York Islanders (32, 27, 9) face off against the Dallas Stars (39, 26, 3) Tuesday night in New York for the final game of the series. The two clubs faced off early in the season, where the Islanders defeated the Stars 4-2 while getting outshot 39-25.

The Islanders are playing their best hockey right now, and after a 4-3 win over the New Jersey Devils, they are now on a four-game winning streak.

The Stars have been playing good as well but need a bounce-back win Tuesday night after a 4-1 loss against the Seattle Kraken.

The Stars are favored in this contest with -135 odds to win, while the Islanders have +115 odds to win.

The puck line is set at -1.5 with +185 odds for the Stars and 1.5 with -225 odds for the Islanders. The under/over is set at 5.5; the under is set at -115, while the over is -105. Both teams are looking for a crucial win Tuesday night in New York.

New York Islanders Betting Preview

The New York Islanders are red hot and are currently on a four-game winning streak. The Islanders currently sit in fifth place in the Metropolitan Division and sit nine points behind the Washington Capitals. The Islanders still have very, very slim playoff hopes alive, but they need all the wins they can get in the last month of the season.

The Islanders have been playing phenomenal defense this season as they currently sit in the top three in the league for goals against average per game with a low 2.47 goals against.

The Islanders’ offense has been their weakest asset this season as they have only averaged 2.8 goals per game. However, the offense has been hot during their four-game winning streak scoring 16 goals and averaging four goals a game.

Dallas Stars Betting Preview

The Dallas Stars are going to need all the points they can possibly get during the final stretch of the season to earn a playoff spot. The Stars currently sit in fifth place in the very tight Central Division and are currently only one point behind the Nashville Predators.

The Stars have been playing well as they are (3-1) in their last four games, but they need to play their best if they want to beat a hot Islanders team Tuesday night.

The Stars overall have been mediocre in all rankings this season, ranking in the middle of the league in goals for and goal against. The Stars’ offense has been rolling their last four games with 12 goals, and their defense (besides the Seattle game) has also been solid.

The Stars need a crucial win Tuesday night against a hot Islanders team to catch the Predators in the standings.

Betting Prediction

I believe that the New York Islanders will beat the Dallas Stars Tuesday night in New York. A huge factor in this decision has to come down to home-ice advantage for the Islanders. The Islanders have also been very hot during their recent stretch, and winning four games in a row gives them huge momentum.

The Islanders also have had no issue putting the puck in the net, scoring 16 goals in their last four games, and their team defense has also been very solid. I know that the Stars are in a very tight battle with the Predators for a playoff spot, but I think the Islanders have way too much momentum coming into this matchup.

If you want to play this very safe, you could choose the Islanders to cover the puck line at -225, but I believe that the Islanders moneyline at +115 is the pick of the night.

Betting Pick: Islanders moneyline at +115
