New Jersey is 4-0 in their last 4 Sunday games and 20-9 in their last 29 games. The under is 4-1 in New Jersey’s last 5 games. Tampa Bay is 8-3 in their last 11 games against the Metro and 1-4 in their last 5 Sunday games. The over is 5-1-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 7 games against the Metro. New Jersey is 1-6 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings in Tampa Bay.


Both of these teams will be on the second game of a back to back in this matchup, after both teams played on Saturday. New Jersey has lost three games in a row and allowed Florida to score four unanswered goals in the third period on Saturday. Tampa Bay has won three games in a row and defeated New Jersey twice last week on the road. New Jersey hasn’t played well on the road at Tampa Bay recently, so I am going to side with the Lightning here.
