The Stanley Cup Finals have lived up to all of the hype through five games. The Dallas Stars were down 3-1 in the series on Saturday night but found a way to claim the victory and force a Game 6. If the Tampa Bay Lightning win, they win the Stanley Cup but if the Stars force a Game 7, we will see a winner take all to decide who hoists the Cup as well as if we are going cash our +165 Stars to win the Stanley Cup series prediction we wrote about before Game 1.. By the way, that was a max play for us.
Dallas Stars vs Tampa Bay Lightning (Lightning lead series 3-2)
Alright, so we lost that last two plays in the Stanley Cup finals and haven’t been as good as should be. That said we are still up over 15-units throughout the NFL playoffs and feel really confident about Game 6.
If you look at this series, there has been a lot of goals scored throughout, and I don’t think anything changes tonight. Through five games, every game has had a combined total of at least 5 goals with game having 7 total goals and another with 9 total goals. Based on trends alone, this game should get to at least 5 combined goals, which gives NHL bettors a push if they take the O/U and realistically I can see a 4-3 final tonight. Now, let’s hope the Stars force a Game 7 and eventually win the Stanley Cup!
The Game 6 Pick: Over 5 Goals (-130)
