Coming into play on Monday night, underdogs have had a lot of success in the early part of the 2018-19 season.

According to Bet Labs (which uses Pinnacle’s closing number), pooches are 63-85 but +4.58 units (3.1% ROI). Underdogs +130 or longer are even better, going 38-54 for +7.01 units (7.6% ROI). That being said, those numbers will eventually even out as the season progresses and the market becomes more efficient. Still it’s interesting to note.

The Pittsburgh Penguins return home after sweeping a four-game road trip, outscoring their opponents, 23-6.

The Pens will host the New York Islanders, who come into this one on a two-game winning streak, on Tuesday night.

The odds tell you the story of this game — Pittsburgh is the far superior team — but is the price on the Penguins too short?
