Tampa Bay Lightning

The Atlantic division appears to be Tampa’s for the taking. On paper, their team is maturing and poised to have their best season since they won the Cup. They won their first and only Stanley Cup back in 2003-04 and have 2 division titles and two conference championships. That’s not a lot of history for a team that has already won a Cup. Compare that to THE St. Louis Blues, who've played 48 seasons without a Cup.

They have also seen a few excellent player skates across their ice over the years. This includes names like Martin St. Louis, Vincent Lecavalier, Steven Stamkos, Brad Richards, Vaclav Prospal, Brian Bradley, Fredrik Modin, Chris Gratton, Dan Boyle and Pavel Kubina.

Bet On Tampa Bay Lightning's Games

Looking to bet on the Lightening next year? Look for a massive regular season, but we’re not sure how ready the team will be for the NHL playoffs. Their is goaltending still unproven, and need to be better for them to content. 

As for general NHL betting, remember that bad teams win a decent number of games. The top tier teams win about 70% of their games. Whereas the lower class teams still win about 30% of their games. There are balance and parity throughout the whole NHL, and betting lines will reflect that fact. So you may not see the payoff potential you would see elsewhere in other sports if you’re betting on underdogs. 

At the same time, you may have heard of the zigzag theory when betting on the NHL. In a nutshell, you’re betting on a team that just lost, because they are due to bounce back and win. This is a pretty good strategy when two average and equal teams are playing each other. 

Its weakness is it doesn’t factor in hot goaltenders, injuries, or a few other things that may be causing a team to lose games. At the same time, it doesn’t apply to strong or weak teams that are likely to go on a long streak.
