The Red Wings are 10-43 in their last 53 road games and 12-49 in their last 61 overall. The Lightning are 65-28 in their last 93 home games and 49-19 in their last 68 overall. The under is 6-2 in Red Wings last 8 overall. The over is 3-1-3 in Lightning last 7 home games. The Red Wings are 6-21 in the last 27 meetings in Tampa Bay and 4-22 in the last 26 meetings.

The Detroit Red Wings just don't look good right now at either end of the ice and it's going to be even tougher to back them against some of the leagues best. The Tampa Bay Lightning have the advantage across the board in this contest and have won 22 of the last 26 meetings against the Red Wings. There's a reason the line is what it is in this spot. I have no choice to lay the PL with the Lightning at home in hopes of trimming down the ML price.
