Yes, you read that headline correctly.
We don’t typically cover NHL PRO Reports that often, but as many sports fans know, the Stanley Cup Playoffs are arguably the most exciting postseason in all of sports.
And where there’s excitement from fans, there’s often a correlation to big betting handles.
Specifically, when it comes to the first-round series between the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning, it has been all Tampa Bay through the first two games. The Lightning took the first two games on the road and return home looking for a commanding 3-0 lead against the Panthers.
So, what do the sharpest NHL bettors think about Thursday’s Game 3? Is the value with Tampa at home? Or is this the time to jump on Florida at a plus-money price?
