Both of our conference series bets appear to be in very good shape right now.
The Sharks blanked the Blues for the second straight game last night to take a 2-1 lead in the West final, and the Penguins could take a 3-1 series lead over the Lightning if they win tonight in Tampa.
San Jose and Pittsburgh just look like teams on missions right now, and the Blues and Lightning seem like teams that may be running out of gas. But of course, everything can change with just 1 game, and we’re definitely not banking on a Penguins/Sharks Stanley Cup final just yet.
We were thinking we might get priced out of betting on tonight’s game, but Sports Interaction is offering good enough odds on the Penguins (-135) that we’re going back to the Pittsburgh well tonight. Good luck with whatever you bet.
Odds below are at the time we made the pick. Be sure to check out our live odds page for updated odds on today’s games.
It feels kind of square to take the Penguins again here, but we just can’t talk ourselves out of it. They have been so dominant in the first 3 games of this series and on such a roll for more than 2 months. Crosby and Malkin are now awake again, and that’s a hell of a complement to the Hagelin/Bonino/Kessel line. Tampa’s in a desperate situation and is definitely motivated to come out with its best effort here tonight. However, we don’t think it’s enough to stop this Penguins train that has won 12 of its last 15 on the road. If Tampa was paying +150, we might see things differently, but the short price on Pittsburgh puts us on the Penguins again tonight.
