Ottawa +172 over Tampa Bay

7:08 PM EST. Overtime included. The Lightning’s stock is soaring after ripping off four wins in their last five games, including a 2-1 run through California to close out October. That West Coast run presents an opportunity to catch the Lightning running on fumes after games in Los Angeles, Anaheim and San Jose. Tampa also hosts rival Carolina on Thursday night, which creates the potential for a lookahead spot with an under-appreciated small market Canada team coming to town.

We’re going to stick with it here, as we backed the Senators in their last game at Florida. Ottawa may be capable of losing to anyone but they are also capable of beating anyone because they create so many chances with their great offensive talent. No longer are the Sens an easy out. A hungrier Ottawa squad is very worthy of getting behind at prices like this.

Our Pick

Ottawa +172 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 3.44)
