BETTING TRENDS

Tampa Bay are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games.

Tampa Bay are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games against NY Rangers.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of NY Rangers' last 6 games against Tampa Bay.

NY Rangers are 8-0 SU in their last 8 games at home.

Prediction

The Lightning responded by winning both games at home to tie the series but going back to New York where they have lost 4 of the last 5 games. The Rangers struggled offensively in the last 2 games at Tampa but they have won 8 straight games at home, so I expect them to bounce back and play dominate at home how they are doing. Take the Rangers.

PICK: Rangers ML (+105)
