Carolina Hurricanes vs New York Islanders 01/19/2020 Spread, NHL Betting Odds and Predictions
Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Carolina Hurricanes vs New York Islanders 01/19/2020 –The Carolina Hurricanes are still well within contention to nab a spot in the NHL Playoffs, but they have to do it sans their prime defensive player Dougie Hamilton. Currently, on a three-game slide, the Hurricanes hope to turn things around when they host the New York Islanders on Sunday inside the PNC Arena.
The NHL betting odds are giving the edge to the Hurricanes despite having an inferior tally compared to the Islanders. The visiting New York team is three spots above Carolina in the Metropolitan standings while barely clinging on the third spot in the division.

Carolina Hurricanes vs New York Islanders 01/19/2020 Betting Odds:
Carolina’s chances to advance to the next round might have just taken a hit with the reported indefinite absence of top defenseman Hamilton to their next games after undergoing a leg surgery on Friday. At sixth in the Metropolitan Division, Caroline Hurricanes, however, are right in pursuit to at least capture a wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. While the Islanders have lesser defeats so far in the season, the win gap between the two teams is oddly just a hairline, 28 against 27.
Players to watch: Teuvo Teravainen (GP 48, G 9, A 36, PTS 45), Andrei Svechnikov (GP 48, G 18, A 24, PTS 42), Sebastian Aho (GP 48, G 24, A 17, PTS 41)
New York Islanders
Devon Toews had himself a career night in last night’s loss to the Capitals after scoring his first career-three point game which was built around a goal and two assists. Wingman Anthony Beauvillier made a good account of himself as well after dishing out two assists in just the first period against Washinton, setting a career-high in assists with 16.
The Islanders suffered a complete meltdown against the state capital, leading by as much as 4-1 before going empty against a five-point avalanche unleashed by Washington.
Players to watch: Mathew Barzal (GP 47, G 17, A 23, PTS 40), Brock Nelson (GP 47, G 19, A 18, PTS 37), Anthony Beauvillier (GP 47, G 12, A 16, PTS 28).
Carolina Hurricanes vs New York Islanders Betting Predictions
Hurricanes are 12-3 in their last 15 when their opponent allows 5 goals or more in their previous game.
Islanders are 6-1 in their last 7 Sunday games.
Hurricanes vs Islanders Betting Picks
Last night’s heart-breaking collapse will serve as the Islanders’ wake-up call going into Carolina. No leads will be blown this time as they are poised to spoil the Hurricanes in their home ice. With Carolina’s defensive anchor out, expect New York to attack at will.
Score Prediction: Hurricanes 2, Islanders 3..
