The Red Wings and Lightning face off in a Thursday night matchup that has zero bearing on the standings.

Tampa Bay has already locked up the Maple Leafs in the first round of the NHL playoffs.

Meanwhile, the Red Wings have been mired in mediocrity during a season in which there had been mild faith. Detroit was set up in playoff position, but sputtered out down the stretch.

For games like this, a casual bettor may be under the impression that there's no edge available. Motivations are unknown, efforts are unclear and lineup changes are a distinct possibility, even mid-game.

But the Action Network's proprietary betting algorithms indicate clear value on one side of the moneyline. The proprietary models incorporate qualitative factors like rest, motivation and more that would ordinarily impact a game with as limited magnitude as tonight.

In fact, it's games like these that may reflect the most value because the market isn't at equilibrium.

In addition to our proprietary models, one of our premier NHL experts is also tailing this side of the moneyline. So are sharp and big moneyed bettors across the landscape, according to our tracking data.
