The Buffalo Sabres have been one of the worst road teams in the league dating back to last season and they've had almost no success agains the Islanders lately. The New York Islanders are also a team I've blindly backed a lot over these last several months. With all that said, the Sabres are as talented of a team as they've been in years, and the Islanders don't look good right now to say the least. I want the plus money with the Sabres.
