NBCSN Blowout Rout - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NHL Rotation #24 Monday 8* Tampa Bay Lightning Money Line (-) vs Dallas Stars @ 8:05 ET - The situation was ideal for the Stars entering this season and they took advantage of a tired Lightning team as a I predicted. Dallas had a good amount of rest but not too much. The Bolts were a little tired from having just finished off the Islanders and with each of the final two games of that series requiring OT (one was double overtime). That said, the value is now with Tampa Bay in this bounce back spot. The Lightning are 5-0 in the playoffs when coming off a loss and I don't see them being denied here. Andrei Vasilevskiy has been great for the Bolts throughout this postseason and I look for a huge response from here. But really he did not play that poorly in Game 1 either. It was a 2-1 game very late in the 2nd period when the Stars got a key late goal. The Dallas skaters simply outworked the Lightning in that game. In other words, Vasilevskiy will see better play from his teammates in front of him in this one. Also, the final goal for Dallas was an empty-netter. This price is very fair in the -150 range and I won't hesitate to step in here as the Lightning improve to 6-0 when off a loss in the post-season. 8* TAMPA BAY

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.
