New York Islanders vs Ottawa Senators Prediction NHL: (North America 05.11/ Europe 06.11)
In another game of the NHL regular season, New York Islanders will host Ottawa Senators at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Let’s find out how these teams performed so far this season and look at the betting options for this match.
New York Islanders
The team in recent seasons demonstrates an extremely stable game, it usually qualifies for the playoffs, and in the regular season, it can compete with any club. This season, the squad from Brooklyn doing well, they are now one of the three leaders of the conference. Currently, the “islanders” are in pretty good shape; they have a series of nine consecutive wins, six were in regular time. We can highlight victories against Tampa (5: 2), Winnipeg (1: 3), St. Louis (3: 2). In the standings, the team settled on the third line, and they have twenty points in the asset, which they earned in thirteen matches played. The “Isles” demonstrate some excellent defence, on average they concede only two goals a game. The last meeting the Islanders played on November 3, and they beat Buffalo with a score of 0: 1 in regular time on the road.
At the moment, this team is considered one of the weakest in the league. They do not have a well-trained roster, lead players and proven combinations. The results at the start of the championship are terrible, a lot of defeats and conceded goals, there are problems in the offence and defence. In the standings, they sit at the last, sixteenth place. In this season the Senators do not shine, they lack ten points to reach the playoffs zone, and the season has just begun recently. In the last game, Ottawa lost to Boston away with a score of 5: 2. They could have earned points, but in the third period, missed three unanswered goals.
New York Islanders vs Ottawa Senators prediction
The last time these clubs met each other on October 26, in this regular season, then the Islanders won 2-4 on the road. They have a significant advantage over the Senators; they won in the last five full-time confrontations with scores (3: 4, 6: 3, 5: 4, 2: 4, 2: 4), only one game ended in OT.
Betting on a victory of the hosts with a handicap -1 would make sense. Firstly, they now have a much better shape, nine consecutive wins warrant to this, the team is playing tenaciously now, it is aimed at leadership in the conference. They manage to perform well in defence; they miss a little and act well on counterattacks. Secondly, there is an advantage in the level of the basic structure: among the Islanders, the players are superior in individual skill to the Senators in each position. Thirdly, statistics of personal confrontations, where Ottawa last beat New York in 2017, six games back. The owners will not miss the opportunity to earn two easy points against an outsider.
