The New York Islanders and Detroit Red Wings face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at Little Caesars Arena. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Islanders vs Red Wings prediction.

Islanders Look to Build on Last Game

The Islanders faced off against the Dallas Stars in the last game and it took overtime and they were able to secure the 3-2. Ryan Pulock had a strong game scoring one goal and adding an assist. The Islanders are averaging 2.91 goals while their defense is giving up 3.33 goals per game. The offense is ranked 23rd while the defense is ranked 24th in the league. Mathew Barzal has scored 17 goals and added 44 assists so far this season. 

Red Wings Look to Build on Last game

The Red Wings in the last game faced off against the Washington Capitals and they were able to secure the 8-3 victory. Lucas Raymond had a strong game putting up one goal and two assists. The Red Wings are averaging 3.57 goals while their defense is giving up 3.15 goals per game. The offense is ranked 4th while the defense is ranked 20th. In the last game the offense overcame the defense, and the defense is going to need to be a whole lot better here. The Red Wings will meet the Panthers after this one.

Islanders vs Red Wings Betting Prediction

The Islanders are averaging only 2.91 goals per game and their offense isn’t good enough to keep up. The Red Wings scored eight goals in the last game and they going to have no issue running up the score here. I expect the Red Wings are going to score at least five goals and that will be enough fro Detroit to get the job done. Back the Red Wings to win this game on the puck line.
