Bet NHL Action For Saturday, March 24, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

Tampa Bay opened as a -145 favorite before the line dropped. The total has remained at 6 goals. The Lightning range all the way from a -155 favorite down to -131, while New Jersey is between a +135 and +115 underdog.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 56 percent of bets are being placed on the visiting Lightning. Online wager info also shows that 52 percent of bets are coming in on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Tampa Bay right winger Ryan Callahan (upper body) is out indefinitely. For the Devils, left winger Miles Wood (lower body) is questionable. Left winger Marcus Johansson (brain injury) is out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

Never shy away from a team that has managed to go 24-11-0-2 on the road this season. The Lightning come in relatively healthy and have won three in a row, including a 7-6 win at the Islanders two nights ago. New Jersey ended a two-game losing skid with a 4-3 overtime victory at the Penguins last night. The Devils have won both meetings this season, but with an extra day of revenge and a little revenge factoring in take the Lightning with confidence here.
