NEW YORK ISLANDERS vs. DALLAS STARS PREDICTIONS

The Islanders skate into the Metroplex Tuesday night with a four-game win streak in tow. That includes a 3-0 shutout win at Madison Square Garden against the New York Rangers on Friday night. Three of the four victories during the win streak have been road games, too, while the OVER has cashed in three of the four outings.

The Stars will be looking for a little revenge after losing to the Islanders at UBS Arena in Elmont on March 19, as Semyon Varlamov and the Isles doubled up Dallas by a 4-2 count. Dallas had been cruising along with three consecutive wins from March 29-April 2, but they suffered a 4-1 loss at Seattle as moderate favorites. The UNDER has connected in four of the past five games for Dallas.

NEW YORK ISLANDERS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 32-27-9
  • ATS: 31-37
  • O/U: 31-34-3

The Islanders are on fire across the past four games, bouncing back from back-to-back losses against the Bruins and Lightning to win four straight. While it's more than likely that the Isles aren't going to make the playoffs, New York is 11-3-1 across the past 15 games overall, and they've been one of the toughest outings in the NHL lately.

The Islanders are an impressive 7-1 in the past eight games when playing on a day of rest, while going 4-1 in the past five against Western Conference teams. More long-term, the Isles are still just 4-13 in the past 17 as a road underdog, 7-24 in the past 31 against winning teams and 5-21 in the past 26 overall as an underdog.

For totals, it's been all about the OVER lately. The OVER is 5-2 in the past seven games overall, while going 15-6 in the past 21 against Western Conference teams. The OVER is also 4-0 in the past four against Western Conference foes, while cashing in five of the past six against Central Division teams. The OVER is also a whopping 14-3-1 in the past 18 when working on a day of rest.

DALLAS STARS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 39-26-3
  • ATS: 29-39
  • O/U: 29-37-2

The Stars have been hot lately, and long-term, too. They're going to be a nightmare for someone in the postseason, that's for sure. Dallas has won six of the past eight games overall, while going 25-9 in the past 34 games as a favorite.

In addition, Dallas has won 16 of the past 22 games against Metropolitan Division teams, while cashing in nine of the past 13 against Eastern Conference squads. They're also 18-6 in the past 24 against losing teams, while going 20-7 in the past 27 at home.

In terms of totals, it's the complete opposite trends than the Isles. The UNDER is 4-1 in the past five games overall for the Stars, while going 4-1 in the past five as a favorite. However, the OVER is 5-2-1 in the past eight against Eastern Conference foes, while hitting at a 3-1-1 clip in the previous five at home.

NEW YORK ISLANDERS vs. DALLAS STARS BETTING CONCLUSION

Both of these teams have been red-hot lately, and this is shaping up to be a pretty entertaining game on Tuesday night. New York has looked really good over the past month, while Dallas is fighting for a wild-card spot in the Western Conference. We should have a very close, defensive battle. The Stars will also have revenge on their minds, too, as the Islanders served them up a costly loss in the first meeting on Long Island.

Look for Dallas to return the favor and grab a very important two points, cooling off the Islanders in the process. The UNDER is the best bet here, however.
