Randy’s Free Pick
The Tampa Bay Lightning are in one of those grooves where the wins pile up, and you shouldn't bet against them when they're rolling. However, the Edmonton Oilers are a good hockey team and them at home with the rest advantage while getting plus money is hard to turn down. The Oilers have had success at home against the Lightning. I'll take a shot with the home dog.
