Free NHL Pick For Tonight Mar 29: Penguins vs. Islanders
Pittsburgh Penguins (1.53) vs. New York Islanders (2.65); Total 5.5
7:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
This is the second half of a home-and-home series between the Pens and Isles. The Islanders shocked the penguins with a convincing 5-3 win on Tuesday in the 1st of the two games. The Penguins will look to get their revenge in New York tonight. Getting late in the season what we start to see is that games with teams fighting for a playoff spot tend to be much tighter and lower scoring. On the other hand when we get two teams out of the playoff picture (or with no big playoff implications) we see games that have a much higher pace which leads to more goals (more often than not). In this game we have an Islanders team that is just playing out the stretch and padding their stats. As for the Pens they have an eye on the Rangers in front of them and the Flyers behind them but they are not under a lot of pressure like teams fighting for a playoff spot. From watching these two teams play the past week you can really see how loose their games are. This leads me to my pick for this game.

Pens vs Isles Prediction:
Both teams are loose and have been filling the opponents net. In the Penguins last 5 games they have 25 goals (5 / game). In the Islanders last 5 games they have 19 goals (3.8 / game). Betting on the Penguins has been profitable the past few weeks for people but even a better bet on Penguins games these days is the OVER. The last 5 Penguins games and 8 of the last 9 games have gone OVER the total. Only 1 of the Islanders last 8 games have gone under the total (with 2 pushes). Currently the total for this game is 5.5 goals at Bodog Sportsbook with the OVER paying 1.80. Until we start seeing totals of 6 for Penguins games I’ll be taking a close look at the OVER in the remaining Pens games.
