How To Bet On Tampa Bay Lightning

A lot is expected of the Tampa Bay Lightning. They made the Eastern Conference finals in 2014-15 and have, thanks to Steve Yzerman, built a young, fast and exciting team. The 2016-17 season was disappointing for the Lightning, as they were hit hard by the injury bug. The team also traded Ben Bishop to the Los Angeles Kings in an attempt to build for the future. Led by Steven Stamkos, whose injury kept him out of the lineup for most of the season, the Lightning are poised to make a run at the Cup in the next few seasons.  [+]

The franchise won their only Stanley Cup in 2004, when they beat the Calgary Flames in an epic seven-game series. But Yzerman is doing his utmost to lead the Lightning back to the promise land.

Tampa Bay Lightning Betting Tips

The Lightning, when at full strength, have one of the most potent and dynanmic offenisve crews in the NHL. They score goals at will and love playing an expansive and exciting brand of hockey. But they didn’t defend well in 2016-17. A blue line led by one of the league’s best puck-moving defenseman, Victor Hedman is still only 26 years old and has a long, prosperous career ahead. 

They need him to step up his defensive game, especially in the absence of Ben Bishop, whose trade to the Kings caused quite a stir in Florida. Yzerman said he is looking to the future, but a top-notch goalie is crucial for a Cup run. They’ll have to find another showcase netminder, as few people believe Andrei Vasilevskiy can run the show. 

You’ll want to prioritize the overs market until the Lightning prove they can defend as a unit. With question marks surrounding the goaltending situation, the propensity for high-scoring games becomes even higher. But make sure to check how Tampa Bay fares against certain opponents, especially Atlantic Division foes. 

Form often takes a back seat when the Lightning play a division rival, but evaluating historic trends still over a good metric to plan from. Take into account both teams Corsi Ratings while analyzing thier Adjusted Efficiency Margins. If the Lightning perform adequately in the regular season but sneak into the playoffs, they might be a great pick to upset a favorite.
