NHL Updated Series Wager
Tampa Series +280 over Toronto
7:30 PM EST. Our strategy here will mirror that of our approach to the Carolina/Boston series, but without the safety net of that pre-series wager. However, there is just too much value here to not make a similar wager if one were to like the Lightning to win tonight.
While one could lay -135 with the Bolts in Game 6, bet them to win in regulation (+130), or even wager on the puck line (+185), we’re going to leave those options on the table and bet the Lightning +280 to win the series.
If the Bolts win tonight, the Leafs figure to be in the -110 to -120 range in Game 7 and that will put us in a postion to profit before the puck ever drops no matter what happens in Game 7. The Maple Leafs have not looked even remotely comfortable in this building in the past two games and let's not forget that Toronto lost here 8-1 just before the playoffs began. That's three blowout losses in their past four trips here. Sorry Leafs Nation, prepare for Game 7.
Tampa Bay +280 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 5.60)
