NHL betting tips from's expert, including the best bets from Carolina Hurricanes at New York Islanders and Columbus Blue Jackets at Tampa Bay Lightning.

Carolina Hurricanes at New York Islanders (00:00 GMT on Wednesday)

The New York Islanders are aiming to sweep their regular-season series against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Islanders won their three previous meetings against the Hurricanes this season and have taken four of five in the series. The Islanders (23-13-4, 50 points) extended their winning streak to six games after securing a 4-3 win at St. Louis on Saturday. The visitors trailed by two goals after the first period before Matt Martin, Jordan Eberle, Johnny Boychuk and Anders Lee scored to put them in control. The Hurricanes (19-17-5, 43 points) are also on a roll having won their last four games. They edged the slumping Ottawa Senators 5-4 on Sunday with Justin Faulk and Brock McGinn leading the way with a goal and an assist apiece. Jaccob Slavin, Dougie Hamilton and Justin Williams also lit the lamp for Carolina. We are backing the Islanders to extend their winning run after this game.

Columbus Blue Jackets at Tampa Bay Lightning (00:30 GMT on Wednesday)

The Tampa Bay Lightning are aiming to bounce back against the Columbus Blue Jackets after their seven-game winning streak ended in San Jose on Saturday. Victor Hedman and Mikhail Sergachev scored a goal apiece as the league leaders suffered a 5-2 defeat. Nevertheless, Jon Cooper’s boys are still way ahead of their closest pursuers with a 32-8-2 record with 66 points. Expected to lead the Lightning in their quest to get back on track are Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point and Steven Stamkos. The Blue Jackets (24-14-3, 51 points) are also doing well lately to keep pace with Metropolitan Division leaders Washington and Pittsburgh. They carved out a 4-3 overtime win at Florida on Saturday with Seth Jones sealing the victory just 18 seconds into the extra period. Anthony Duclair, Josh Anderson and Brandon Dubinsky scored in regulation as Columbus secured their seventh win in nine games. The Lightning demolished the Blue Jackets 8-2 at home last October 13 in their first meeting this season. Point had two goals and an assist to lead Tampa Bay to their fourth straight win in the series. We expect a win for Tampa Bay in this match-up.
