NHL Games on Sunday May 1st, 2021
With just one NHL game on Sunday, May 2nd, 2021, we will break down the best bets of the night. Check out our angle on this one as well as the updated betting odds.
Tampa Bay Lightning -370 @ Detroit Red Wings +295 O/U 5.5
The Red Wings have played this series tough, especially at home where Detroit has won two and lost the other in overtime. Tampa Bay is the much better team however and will be motivated after dropping the last two in this series. Andrei Vasilevskiy will be back in net for the Lightning, who is 4-0 with a 1.49 GAA vs Detroit this season. There is no value in the money line here, but Tampa will not lose this game. Back the Lightning on the puck line.
Full Game Bet: Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5
The previous game was tightly contested, and the over has cashed in the last 4 games for Detroit. Tampa Bay has averaged 3.33 goals per game on the road this season, but has scored just one goal on the back end of their last two back-to-backs. With Vasilevskiy in goal for Tampa I expect Detroit to have few good looks. Fade the total.
Total: Under 5.5
