Montreal Canadiens vs. New York Islanders - 12/3/19 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction
New York Islanders at Montreal Canadiens
Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 7:00 PM (Bell Centre )
MON -125 O/U 5.5
The New York Islanders go to Montreal to take on the Montreal Canadians on Tuesday at the Bell Centre. The Islanders are coming off a back to back, facing Detroit on Monday and then having to travel to Montreal to play the Canadians on Tuesday, it will be a rough back to back travel session for one of the best teams in hockey.
The Islanders have been phenomenal this season as they are 17-5-2 on the season so far and are just shaking off a three-game losing streak that gave them most of their losses after an insanely impressive run.
Nothing is going right for the Canadians at the moment as they are on an eight-game losing streak at the moment. The Canadians have been outscored by 17 goals so far on their skid. The last loss was to the very good Boston Bruins 3-1 as the Bruins scored all of their goals in the final period to hand another loss to Montreal.
The Canadians are 11-10-6 and are fifth in the Atlantic Division with 28 points on the season. Montreal does prove to be able to score the puck, averaging 3.22 goals per game, but it is their defense that hinders them as they have allowed 3.52 goals per game.
New York is 12-12 ATS this season.
Under is 4-0 in Islanders last 4 vs. a team with a losing record
Montreal is 13-14 ATS this season.
Over is 4-0-1 in Canadiens last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
I think the Islanders are too good not to pick them in this one. Montreal is easily playing their worst hockey right now and I think they are running into New York at the wrong moment as I think that New York is too balanced of a team to bet against them in this one. Final Score Prediction, New York Islanders win but our best play is over 3-2.
