Stanley Cup Betting Tips For Thursday, May 19

Jon and DerekWe got a dominant effort from the Penguins last night to not only cash our bet on the Pens to win the game but also help our -1.5 bet on the series.

Pittsburgh actually started slowly but made up for things in the final two periods, blitzing the Lightning net with 48 shots and building a 4-1 lead before winning 4-2. Kessel continued to emerge as a contender for the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP, collecting 2 points to pull into 3rd in playoff scoring behind San Jose’s Couture and Burns.

The shots on net in the series are now 124-69. It’s looking like the Lightning may finally be running out of gas without Stamkos. Pittsburgh is already a favourite of as high as -155 for Game 4 Friday.

The Western Conference final returns tonight with the series tied 1-1, but San Jose looking like the superior team so far.
