Both playoff games on Tuesday night have value bets associated, according to the Action Network’s proprietary betting models.

That means our algorithms have indicated betting edges on both of these Game 1s.

These model projections include one total and two puck lines for tonight’s slate.

The total and spread for Lightning vs. Panthers have edges. Meanwhile, just the spread has an edge for Blues vs. Avalanche.

Our models are player-level, so they factor in all the injuries and COVID-related absences that have made handicapping NHL games so fickle this season.

The Action Network’s algorithms administer value based on a variety of different proprietary factors.
