The Tampa Bay Lightning reminded everyone that you shouldn’t count them out, with a big win over the Colorado Avalanche.
It was a do or die game for them and I must admit having bet Tampa, I was sweating when the Avs went up 1-1. But Tampa got fired up and were able to come back and take the lead.
Scott also won his prop on Hedman over 2.5 shots which was nice. I’m always wary of bets during the finals so nice to both win out.
Now we have an interesting Game 4. Tampa will feel very confident after that one. Avs also pulled Kuemper in that game.
Here’s our thoughts:
Avalanche vs Lightning Bets:
Scott: The Lightning came alive in game 3. It was a reminder of why they are back to back champs. After getting outshot 30-16 in game 2, the Lightning kept the shot count close, 39-32, and chased Kuemper from the game.
The Avalanche need to find a way to contain the Lightning who are still at home and will be riding that momentum. I’m not sure who is going to win this game.
It’s been a high scoring series so far. I expect the Avs will be better prepared for this one. I’m not saying they win but they should have a better game. Rantanen has yet to score in this series but had 2 assists in game 1, 3 in game 2 and 2 more in game 3. I’m betting that he will have at least 1 assist in this game.
Rantanen Over 0.5 assists for 1.71 odds
Graeme: I’m already shaking my head at this bet.
The over has hit every game yet it’s still over 6 only.
I know that when I play it, it’s going to end up being a super quiet game. Vasy & Kuemper both going to have beast games or whatever. Just always happens – feel like you’re the last one at a party etc.
But hey why not. Despite that Tampa win I am not sure I can pick them to win here – Avs might be able to make the adjustments now they’ve played them at home.
Over 6 Goals incl OT
