Ducks vs. Lightning Pick

NHL Predictions: Anaheim Ducks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning 10/28/17

Will the Tampa Bay Lightning keep rolling along when they play host to the Anaheim Ducks tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Lightning are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -170 to win, while the Ducks are listed with a money line of +150 to prevail. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida.

Anaheim is coming off an 8-3 loss at Florida on Thursday night to fall to 4-4-1 on the season and 1-2 on the road. The Ducks are scoring just 3 goals per game while allowing 3.22 per contest. Andrew Cogliano is leading the team with three goals and four assists while three others have three goals. John Gibson has a 3.03 GAA and a .916 save percentage this season in net.

Tampa Bay is coming off a 3-2 win over the Red Wings at home on Thursday for its fourth straight victory. The Lightning are 9-1-1 overall and 6-0 at home. Tampa is averaging 4 goals per game while averaging 2.36 goals per contest. Steven Stamkos has already racked up 17 assists to go with four goals while Nikita Kucherov has 12 goals with seven assists. Andrei Vasilevskiy has been great in net with a 2.20 GAA and a .936 save percentage.

Bet on Ducks vs. Lightning

The Lightning are hot and have owned this series as well, winning five of their last six meetings with the Ducks. Tampa Bay has been able to score by the handful while keeping opponents out of the net. Anaheim hasn’t shown the ability to stop opponents or out-score them and I don’t see that changing today. The public is behind the Lightning and I expect them to stay hot.
