Ricky's 8* play on Tampa.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Lightning are 5-1 in their last six playoff games as a favorite.
- The Lightning are 68-33 in their last 101 games following a win.
- The Lightning are 39-14 in their last 53 overall.
Verdict: The Lightning should book their ticket to the Finals.
