Shane’s Free Pick

The last time these two teams faced off the final score was 4-1, and it’s going to be much of the same here. Chicago is going to struggle to get any offense going and that is going to be the difference. Look for a 3-1 or 4-1 type of game, and this will be a comfortable victory for Tampa Bay. Back the Lightning -1.5 to cash. This is one of my favorite plays on the board. Don't be afraid to throw a few dollars on Lightning -2.5.
