Penguins vs. Lightning Prediction and Odds (Tampa Bay Favored in Eastern Conference Rubber Match)

The Tampa Bay Lightning have the longest active winning streak in the NHL, winning their last five games. They can extend that streak to six tonight when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins, who will enter the game-winners of their last two.

This will serve as the tiebreaker in the series between these two teams this season. The Penguins defeated the defending champions 6-2 on opening night. Tampa Bay quickly retaliated, defeating Pittsburgh 5-1 just weeks later.

Let’s take a look at those Odds on WynnBET for today’s Eastern Conference rubber match.

In total:

The Penguins and Lightning are a lot closer than you might think.

They rank 9th and 10th in CORSI%, 5th and 11th in expected goals per 60 minutes, and 1st and 7th in expected goals conceded per 60 minutes. The Penguins have the advantage in CORSI and expected goals for while it is the Lightning who lead the league in expected goals.

Apart from that, the penguins are worth +150 odds. Even though Lightning is the top team in the Eastern Conference, I think we’re getting some value on a Pittsburgh team that should be priced closer to the +140 mark. I’ll scrutinize them as street underdogs.

Tip: Penguins +150
