Bet on Underdog Lightning To Continue Streak vs Knights

The Tampa Bay Lightning are a road underdog in the NHL odds tonight as they attempt to extend their winning streak to four games in a matchup against the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Lightning have won three in a row coming into Tuesday’s showdown with Vegas since acquiring forward Anthony Duclair and defenseman Matt Dumba at the trade deadline. Tampa Bay recorded 18 goals in the three wins, including a 5-3 triumph at Florida on Saturday.

Lightning right wing Nikita Kucherov is second in the league with 114 points, including three in a 5-4 win over Vegas at home on Dec. 21. Duclair has four points and is a +5 in three games since coming over from San Jose.

The Golden Knights have recovered from a 2-8-1 stretch with three wins in their last four games after a 3-1 triumph against New Jersey on Sunday. Vegas is tied with Los Angeles for third in the Pacific Division.

Tampa Bay is +2800 in the odds to win the Stanley Cup and the Golden Knights are +1100 to repeat as champions.

This could have the makings of a tight, playoff-style game, unlike the first meeting in December. Both teams will be stressing defense and have been getting solid goaltending.



Lightning vs Golden Knights ATS Pick: Lightning +1½

Tampa Bay has looked like a different team the last three games and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy is coming off a brilliant performance, stopping 47 of 50 shots at Florida.



Lightning vs Golden Knights Moneyline Pick: Lightning +115

We expect the Bolts will try to limit Jack Eichel and Marchessault, forcing the rest of the lineup to try to beat them. The Golden Knights are healthier than they have been, but they are still in the middle of the NHL pack offensively if you bet online.



Lightning vs Golden Knights Player Prop: Duclair Anytime Goal (+275)

Duclair has been skating with Point and Kucherov, which certainly gives him plenty of value.
