Islanders to Wrap Up Playoff Berth NHL Best Bet for April 15

Teams in opposite positions in the Metropolitan Division will meet for the last time this season when the New York Islanders battle the New Jersey Devils on Monday. New York has been riding a wave recently, winning six of its last seven to remain in third in the division while hoping to secure a spot in the postseason.

The Islanders have a chance to clinch a spot with a win against the Devils, who have long been eliminated from the playoff race and are second worst in the Metro. New York will be hoping to stay away from the NHL Wild Card, and as a slight favorite on the road, it should be able to do so against New Jersey.

Islanders vs Devils Moneyline Pick: Islanders (-120)

Although the Devils have won three of the previous meetings over New York this season, the Islanders should be an easy bet at the sportsbook to get it done Monday night.

New York still has something to play for and has been playing strong hockey as of late, while the Devils have just two games left and are playing out the string. The Islanders have won six of their last seven with their defense stepping up, allowing 1.86 goals a game in that time. New York should have another solid night defensively against a New Jersey offense that has been struggling, averaging 2.8 goals in its last five. The Devils are also coming off a shutout loss.

Though the Islanders haven’t been the most prolific offense, averaging three goals in their last five, they should have another solid night against the Devils. New Jersey has given up 3.4 goals a game in its last five and starting goalie Jake Allen has a .870 save percentage this month.


With the Islanders also still having plenty to play for, they should continue to ride their momentum and get it done on the road as favorites in Las Vegas odds.



Islanders vs Devils Player Prop Pick: Kyle Palmieri Over 0.5 Points (-136)

Though he saw his four-game goal streak come to an end in his last game against the Rangers, Palmieri still found a way to be involved in the scoring, notching two assists to extend his point streak. Palmieri has now had quite a productive April following a bit of an inconsistent March. He has scored a point in five straight games and has had one in six of the seven games this month.

Though he has only got on the scoresheet in one of the three games against New Jersey this season, Palmieri has 51 points. With his recent uptick in production and with the Devils’ defensive issues, he should be able to continue that Monday for your player prop picks.
