Finally, The Total

The total is set at 5.5 goals with the Under being the favored side. Only two of the five games this series have seen six or more goals with an average total of 5.8 goals per game. However, only one game has had less than five goals, meaning the Over could potentially have some value attached to it.

  • Over 5.5 +120
  • Under 5.5 -140

Both goalies have played pretty well this series but the combination of the Islanders defense and Ilya Sorokin have been the driving factor behind keeping these games below the total. The Penguins have scored two or fewer goals in three games. Interestingly enough, each time the Pens have scored 3+, the game total is Over 5.5.
