The return to the island hasn’t quite gone as planned. The New York Islanders have a lot of work to do in order to turn around their season and get back to the playoffs. They proved last season that they can get hot at the right time.
There’s no better time to bet on the Islanders if you believe in them to right the ship than now.
If you’re in the state of New York, you can now legally place wagers on them.
Be sure to set up an account on as many as possible in order to shop for the best odds.
Let’s get into some of the current odds on the Islanders.
Stanley Cup Odds

There’s some value on this one if the Islanders can sneak their way into the playoffs. We know they’re capable of making runs in the playoffs, as proven by last season.
If you believe in the Isles this season, the spot to place your wager is Caesars where they’re offering 75-1 odds to win the cup.
Eastern Conference Odds

There’s some value on this one as well for similar reasons as listed above. If they can get in, there’s a good chance they can make a run.
The best place to bet on the Isles to win the Eastern Conference is BetRivers as they’re offering 50-1 odds.
Metropolitan Division Odds

There’s not as much value on this one despite the monstrous odds. The Isles currently sit 22 points back of the division lead in the standings. That’s almost impossible to overcome at this point in the season.
But Caesars and DraftKings are offering pretty good odds at 100-1.
Other Team Futures
The one that is most interesting is the “Islanders to Make Playoffs” prop on DraftKings and FanDuel. Yes is currently +350 and No is -475 on DK. While FanDuel has Yes at +310 and No at -450.
The Islanders are practically out of the running for the Presidents’ Trophy but DraftKings and FanDuel are still offering odds at 500-1 and 300-1.
With the way the season has gone so far, there aren’t many players from the Islanders in position to win awards.
Matthew Barzal is 100-1 on DraftKings, 120-1 on FanDuel and 50-1 on Caesars to win the Hart Memorial Trophy.
Semyon Varlamov is getting some action on the Vezina Trophy. He’s currently 50-1 on DraftKings, 48-1 on FanDuel, 30-1 on Caesars and 35-1 on BetRivers to win the award that goes to the league’s top goaltender.
