TB (-150) @ pinnacle

NBCSN Blowout Rout - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NHL Rotation #25 Wednesday 8* Tampa Bay Lightning Money Line (-) vs Dallas Stars @ 8:05 ET - The Lightning have swung momentum in a big way. The most impressive thing about their Game 2 win was that even when the Stars were trying to battle back in the 3rd period, Tampa Bay wouldn't let them. Over the last 14 and 1/2 minutes of the final period, Dallas still needed one more goal and yet the Bolts held them to just 2 shots. That is dominance. Now the Stars, already dealing with an injured Faksa also so Comeau exit with an injury. Even if those guys were able to play tonight they won't be 100%. I respect the Stars plenty but this is a tough situation for them. The Lightning have momentum and health on their side and, as good as Dallas goalie Khudobin is, Vasilevskiy has been even better at the other end for the Bolts. That is why I am willing to lay the price here (-150 range) but that price is keeping the rating from being a top play in this particular situation. All that said though, this is still a very favorable spot for the Lightning to grab the lead in this series in my opinion. Lay it! 8* TAMPA BAY

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.
