Tampa Bay Lightning

Winnipeg Jets


TB Point Spread

Under Game Totals

Money Line Pick

The Lightning are easily the hottest team in the NHL right now, coming in having won nine of their last ten game. Their only loss in this stretch was a 3-1 defeat to a horrible New Jersey team on the second night of a back to back. On the other side of this match-up is the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets are struggling as of recently, winning just four of their last ten games. Winnipeg have not been impressive at home, posting a record of 11-10-2. Whereas, Tampa Bay has a solid record of 13-7-2 when away from home. The Lightning are clearly the better team here and with home ice not playing a huge factor for Winnipeg, I lean to the Lightning to win this game on the money line.

Over Under Pick

The over has been what usually cashes when these teams have met, but I actually like the under in this situation. Especially over the last five games for both sides where defense has been incredible. The Jets have allowed just 2.2 goals per game over this stretch, while Tampa is allowing even less at 1.6. The under is 3-1 over the Lightning’s last four and 4-2 in the Jets’ last six. That said, I will look for a more defensive minded game will take the under as a lean.
