Sharks at Islanders: Projected starting goalies

Martin Jones vs. Thomas Greiss.

Jones puts his 14-18-2 record, 3.11 goals against average and .894 save percentage on the line as the road trip continues. He allowed just one goal on 28 shots in the first meeting with the Islanders at SAP Center in San Jose back on Nov. 23, a 2-1 win in overtime.

Greiss was originally drafted in the third round in 2004 by the Sharks. He is likely to face his original organization in this one, although it is unconfirmed. Greiss is 16-8-2 with a 2.65 GAA and .916 SV% in his 26 starts and 28 appearances overall. If not, Semyon Varlamov (18-12-4, 2.51 GAA, .918 SV%) would get the call.

Prediction

Islanders 3, Sharks 1.

Moneyline (ML)

The Sharks (+170) are expected to be sellers leading up to Monday’s NHL trade deadline. They parted with D Brenden Dillon last week. C Joe Thornton, among others, might be following Dillon out the door. As such, the Islanders (-209) are the play. However, you can’t take them risking more than twice the return. AVOID.

New to sports betting? A $10 bet on the Islanders to win returns a profit of $4.78, while a $10 wager on the Sharks results in a profit of $17.

Puck Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

The ISLANDERS ( -1.5, +135) slapped the brakes on a four-game losing skid and offensive drought Friday, topping the Red Wings 4-1. The past four wins by the Islanders have also resulted in them covering the puck line, too, so go this route rather than the more expensive moneyline.

Over/Under (O/U)

The lean is to the UNDER 5.5 ( -115), which has been the play in each of the past five for the Islanders. That was also the play in the first meeting in San Jose between these two teams. The Under is also 4-1 in the past five for the Sharks, and 7-1 in the past eight on the road.
