Randy’s Free Pick

The Tampa Bay Lightning are back in one of those grooves where the wins don't stop coming, and they're running into a Canucks team they've beaten up over the years. The Vancouver Canucks lack of defense makes them hard to trust against quality sides, and they're not finishing games lately. Give me Tampa and the PL for max betting value.
