The Wild are 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 in their last 5 Thursday games. The Islanders are 1-4 in their last 5 Thursday games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Wild last 5 road games. The over is 3-1-1 in Wild last 5 overall. The under is 3-0-2 in Islanders last 5 home games. The under is 5-1-2 in Islanders last 8 overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in New York.

Neither of these teams are playing well, so I'm not running to the window to back either side. With that said, the New York Islanders are a team we've backed a lot over the years, and despite their struggles they're still good defensively. At home, I don't expect the Islanders to continue piling up the losses. A win has to take place eventually. Give me the Islanders and the cheap price if forced to pick.
