Capper: Ben Burns
Offered at: 5dimes @ -115 NY Islanders
As a young child, I once attended an Islanders game (at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto) on my birthday. That was back in the Bossy/Trottier/Potvin/Smith days, when the Isles were the best team in the world. I loved hockey and it was a special night for me.
Since that era ended, the Isles have largely fallen on hard times.
The Devils have been a better team than them nearly every year in recent memory. That gap may be shrinking though. That was evident at New Jersey on 1/31, when the Isles escaped with a 5-4 victory.
The Devils would obviously love some payback. However, they're not playing well right now and they're in a bit of a tough scheduling spot.
Meanwhile, having lived in the basement for so many years, the Isles would love to kick a struggling division rival while its down.
Although they are playing their first home game off a road trip, the Islanders come in well-rested and off back-to-back victories. The Devils played yesterday, suffering their fourth straight loss.
Despite having the venue and schedule in their favor, the Isles are only a very modest favorite, essentially a pick'em game. I feel that's based in part to the last 10+ years, which really isn't particularly relevant to this season.
The Isles are a profitable 20-15 (+9.6) the past couple of seasons, when playing with two day's rest in between games. I feel they're worth a look here.
Ben Burns was 6-2 on Saturday, including 3-0 with his top plays. He's now 108-68 (+$29,417) in all sports in 2013. Factor in an 11-4 record on free plays & he's a SENSATIONAL 119-72. His NBA is on a 66-37 streak and his NHL is 22-3 the last 25. Ben enjoyed a superb football season (and playoffs) and has a history of success in the Super Bowl.
