Thursday night’s NHL betting card is one of our favorites in a long time.

Let’s see if we can take advantage with an under (possible push alert though) in the NY Islanders and Columbus game. The NHL odds are in our favor at top-rated sportsbooks.

NHL Pick


New York Islanders vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

Thursday, April 04, 2024 – 07:00 PM ET at Nationwide Arena


Betting Trends

  • The total has gone under in 6 of NY Islanders’ last 8 games when playing on the road against Columbus.
  • The total has gone under in 10 of Columbus’ last 13 games at home.

Value on Tonight’s Under Line

Despite both teams being quite bad at keeping goals out of their own net this season, they also struggle to score. Combined, they are averaging just 5.7 goals per game and rank as the 8th (Columbus) and 10th (Islanders) worst offenses in the league in terms of goals per game.

Recent trends have been in the unders favour and we really love the -120 odds on the under 6.0 line for a possible push. We can’t see seven goals in this game; it’s possible, but we are prepared to bet against it at these current odds.

The Pick

Let’s ride with a bore-fest in this NHL matchup.

Columbus are ranked dead last in the Eastern Conference and the Islanders are pushing for a playoff spot but right now their realistic chances of making the postseason is about 20%.

Although both teams can concede an alarming amount of goals, the Islanders might push for a win and look to keep things quiet on their goaltending end, whilst the Blue Jackets might not even be interested.
