Avalanche in lightning picks and predictions
Lightning 3, Avalanche 2
The Lightning (-108) They are short snowboard dogs in the home, which is likely for two reasons. One, the avalanche roughed them up in Game 2, and second, Colorado won all seven post-season games on the way. But all good things come to an end. Vasilevskiy will greatly improve in Game 3 after hitting 7 marks on Saturday, and he will be the reason Tampa made this series.
Lightning +1.5 (-290) will cost 2.9 times your potential return. There is no value there. If you love Tampa on home ice, just play it straight.
The Over cashed in the first two games of the series, but under 5.5 (-130) is the way to go in game 3.
Tampa Bay should be better defensively on ice at home, feeding its crowd for a much-needed boost. Look for Vasilevskiy to return to world class in this game, which will be the least scored game in the series.
