(53) Montreal vs. Tampa Bay (54)

PICK: williamhill @ TB (-185)

DATE: March 5, 2020 - 7:00 PM



EXPERT: Al McMordie



At 7:05 pm, our selection is on the Tampa Bay Lightning over Montreal.  The Lightning were my preseason choice (at 7-1 odds) to win this year's Stanley Cup.  They got off to a slow start, but came on strong from late-December to mid-February where they won 23 of 26 games.  Since then, they've stumbled to a 1-5 record, so they'll look to get back on track tonight.  The good news is that Montreal is the opponent, and the Canadiens have lost all three games this season to Tampa, and also the last five here at Amalie Arena.  And Montreal's been poor when playing with double-revenge, as it's 25-52 its last 77.  Meanwhile, Tampa's a spectacular 39-9 (+20 games on the money line) vs. Atlantic division rivals, 5-1 this season after not scoring 2+ goals in their previous game, and 56-24 (+18 games on the money line) off a loss.  Take the Lightning. 9* play.  Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.
