Straight Win Market:

Ottawa Senators – Odds: +360 (b-Bets)

Tampa Bay Lightning – Odds: -400 (LeoVegas)

Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators are bottom of the Atlantic Division, cannot seem to buy a win currently and won’t be relishing this difficult looking trip. They are on a 6 game losing streak, have only won 2 of their last 10 and look resigned to finishing bottom of the pile this term. Matt Duchene has been one of very few bright sparks this term and he’ll pose many threats to the Lightning defence.

Tampa Bay Lightning

 Tampa Bay Lightning were pegged back in Boston last time out but have had too much for most this season and sit clear at the top of the Atlantic Division. Having only suffered 12 defeats this season, their points difference of +80 sets them apart with the play-offs approaching. Russian Centreman Nikita Kucherov has been prolific for the Lightning this term and he’ll want to register again in front of his home fans.

The Lightning have had way too much for most of their opponents this term and will want to get back to winning ways quickly here.
