Kraken vs Islanders Prediction

For a moneyline bet, I’m backing the Islanders to secure a victory over the Kraken at home. With the moneyline currently set at -158, I’m locking in my bet on the Islanders straight-up.

For my recommended choice in the puck line, I’m leaning towards the Kraken to cover. Even if the Islanders secure a straight-up win, this game is expected to be tightly contested, and the Kraken should cover the puck line.

With an over/under line sitting at 6 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
