Pick
TB (-150) @ bet365

This is a play on the TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING for our NHL Thursday Breakaway. The Islanders staved off elimination with a 2-1 double overtime win over Tampa Bay on Tuesday to cut the series deficit to 3-2. Though New York played a structured game, it did not generate much offense as the Islanders had just 24 shots in nearly 90 minutes. The New York offense has fizzled in managing just 11 goals against Tampa Bay, including a 5-3 win in Game Three. The Islanders had combined for 28 goals in their previous eight games. If the Lightning feel pressure, they are not letting on that this is the case. Lightning coach Jon Cooper liked the way his team played and thinks they will be just fine if they keep playing that way. Tampa Bay is 20-3 against the money line after scoring one goal or less in their previous game while the Islanders are 1-4 in their last five games following a win. 10* (11) Tampa Bay Lightning

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
