Bet on Lightning vs. Ducks

The home team has won eight of the last 11 meetings in this series, but the Lightning are also 5-2 in the last seven in this series. Tampa Bay has just too much scoring for the Ducks to compete most nights. The goaltending edge also goes to the Lightning, as they will face the weaker offense and have been better in net as is. The public betting is strongly behind Tampa today and I am with them.
