TB (-161) @ williamhill

NBC Blowout Rout - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NHL Rotation #30 Saturday 7* Tampa Bay Lightning Money Line (-) vs Dallas Stars @ 8 ET - That was an inexcusable loss for the Stars last night and, in my opinion, a defeat that is nearly impossible to bounce back from. When they took the 2-0 lead very late in the first period Dallas absolutely can not allow the Lightning to score there to get back in the game but that is exactly what they did. Then in the 2nd period, it was another stupid penalty on the part of Oleksiak (he has been doing this throughout the entire postseason) and that allowed TB to tie the game at 2. Then the Stars don't score on a power play early in OT and the rest is history. Dallas just does not play smart hockey and the Lightning are too good of a team to be making so many mistakes. Tampa Bay sees blood in the water now and does not want to let the Stars get back into this series. The Lightning have been the much better team on special teams throughout this series and that was the case again last night as their power play was the difference in the game. Dallas had their chance last night and blew it. The Bolts are too smart and too well-coached to give the Stars another chance here. Of course this price is a little higher than I would like but that is why I am dropping my rating to just 7* on this play in a game which I feel will be the final game of the 2019-20 NHL season. It has been another good one for me and, already, I can't wait for next season! Until then, lets close out the season the right way...with a win! 7* 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.
