NHL Best Bets September 13th, 2020

Tampa Bay Lightning vs New York Islanders 3 PM

Without knowing for sure that Brayden Point is playing, it makes choosing the winner here more difficult. He strongly affects the outcome, and the number of goals scored. If I’m placing a bet today, I am going to take the Islanders with the goals, but the payout won’t be great.

Pick: Islanders +1.5 (-210)


Welcome back for another of our MKF NHL plays of the day!

More of Less 2.8x

Andrei Vasilevskiy over 27.5 Saves

Vasilevskiy has made 26.6 saves per game against the Islanders in this series, but that number is weighted down by a 22 save performance in game one. I will take the over on Vasilevkiy, as he had made more than 27 saves in four of his last five games.

Semyon Varlamov over 25.5 Points

In the first three games of the series, the Lightning, have had shots into the ’30s, with the exception being game two. Taking the over here is the safer way to go as it has been rare that an Islanders goalie has made less than 26 saves this postseason.
