The Sabres are 18-54 in their last 72 road games and 7-21 in their last 28 overall. The Islanders are 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 20-6 in their last 26 games playing on 0 days rest. The under is 8-2-1 in Sabres last 11 overall. The over is 6-1-1 in Islanders last 8 home games. The Sabres are 0-7 in the last 7 meetings in New York and 2-12 in the last 14 meetings.

The Buffalo Sabres continue to be one of the most disappointing teams in the league with an offense that's doing nothing, and them being on the end of a back to back doesn't help matters. The New York Islanders are starting to heat up and they've been absolute money playing on the end of back to backs dating back to last season. I have zero confidence in the Sabres these days. Give me the Islanders and the PL for max betting value.
