New York is 22-8 in their last 30 games overall and 5-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. Boston is 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-10 in their last 12 games following a win while the under is 14-4-1 in their last 19 games as a favorite. The under is 10-4-2 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams.

I get the case that can be made both ways here, as the Bruins have historically been really good at home, but they’re struggling right now, while the Islanders have been picking up steam again, butt hey’re also usually their most vulnerable on the road. Instead, I’m going to side with the under, as the Islanders have played in a bunch of low-scoring battles lately, and the Bruins just don’t look 100% right still and a game where we may see 4 goals if we are lucky, seems to be on the cards here so give me the under in this spot.
