Money Line Pick
All eyes will be on PPG Paints Arena, as the red-hot Lightning make a visit for a big-time match-up against the Penguins. Pittsburgh comes in off a yet another top-level win, as they survived against the Panthers. For Tampa Bay, the Lightning has rattled off seven consecutive wins, and once again survived another tough match-up in Columbus. A boy have some of the last few head-to-head meetings lived-up to the billing. The Lightning has won three straight games over the Penguins. Tampa Bay hasn’t won at PPG Paints Arena since November 2018, but this match-up is bound to be another entertaining meeting. Tampa has been on fire, and they are again a good call to extend their winning streak. Back the Lightning with confidence.
Over Under Pick
In the last three head-to-head meetings alone, the Lightning has found the back of the net on average at least four times. Two of those three games resulted in six-goal totals or more. Tampa Bay is coming off its lowest output in seven games, as they only found the net twice in an overtime win at Columbus. Both the Lightning and the Penguins have made goal scoring a priority. That’s is why a play on an over-six goal total is the right call.
