NHL Bets of the Day: Best Hockey Picks Today 6/9/21

Mathew Barzal, New York Islanders vs. Boston Bruins

Over 2.5 shots (+115)

The New York Islanders host the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night as the series shifts back to Long Island for Game 6. Islanders center Mathew Barzal has been red-hot over the past four games, tallying three goals and three assists. Given that, even his anytime goal prop at +225 seems generous.

Barzal has been quite consistent in generating shots as well. He’s been averaging 2.7 shots per game during the postseason and should fire a few more tonight. With three or more shots in four consecutive contests, the pick is to take the plus-money and run!

New York Islanders To Win Game 6 (+120)

The number here is quite good for New York because of the expectation that Boston will come out angry and take care of business after losing the last two games. The Islanders will be looking to close things out, however, to avoid traveling back to Boston for Game 7.

This game could be deja vu for New York after closing out its first-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 at home. The Islanders have been tough to beat on their home ice this year with 24 wins there, so if the number stays around +120 our pick is for them to ride their momentum and shut the door on Boston’s postseason run.
