Bet Tonight's NHL Action

Who the Public Likes: Tampa Bay. As of Saturday afternoon, 61 percent of public bets have come in on the Lightning. Online wager info also shows 74 percent of bets siding with the over.

Who We Like: Tampa Bay won the first meeting 5-2 in Los Angeles back in November. The Lightning have won the last three meetings, but the series is tied 5-5 in the last 10 meetings. The under is 5-4-1. The Kings have won three in a row and are 6-4 in their last 10 games. The under is 6-4. Tampa Bay has won three of its last four contests and is 6-4 in its last 10. The over has gone 8-2.

The Lightning's offense has been red-hot much of the season, but here they run into a strong defensive team that is on a back-to-back. The Kings are going to try and slow down the game and win with physicality. Tampa Bay also has a strong goaltender in Andrei Vasilevskiy. Look for both teams to struggle to put the puck in the net.
