Tampa Bay needed that. Andrei Vasilevskiy needed that. Colorado didn’t need it, which is good, because they didn’t get it.

The Lightning went big and buried the Avalanche in Game 3 to keep their season alive. Their reward? Having to do it again so they don’t fall into a 3-1 hole.

Avalanche vs Lightning Odds & Action

87% of bets are on Over 6.


UPDATE 6:20 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: Tampa Bay slid back to -110 on the moneyline at DraftKings, with the splits not moving much in response. The Lightning have 46% of the tickets and 43% of the money. On the puckline, though, a boatload of Bolts money came in, now drawing 60% of the total puckline handle compared to 23% earlier today. Yet the number has only moved from Colorado (-1.5) +220 to Colorado (-1.5) +215. The juice on the total has ticked to Under 6 -120 from -115 and the splits have remained unchanged from this afternoon.

UPDATE 10 A.M. ET WEDNESDAY: Once again the game opened as a pick ‘em, but the Avs and Lightning have traded turns as the -115 favorite over the course of Tuesday. On Wednesday morning, bettors returned Tampa to where they ended before puck drop in Game 3: as -120 favorites. The Bolts are drawing 47% of the tickets and 49% of the money.

The puckline opened Colorado (-1.5) +230 and only came down to +220 yesterday afternoon. Despite no longer being the moneyline favorite, the Avs are still the puckline favorite, getting 61% of bets and 77% of the cash.

We’ve got our fourth straight game at 6. It dipped to 5.5 with juice to the Over yesterday morning for about 20 minutes, but bounced back to 6 by the afternoon. After spending Tuesday night at 6 with a little -115 juice to the Over, the juice has swung the other way to Under 6 -115. Still, bettors aren’t fading 3-0 to the Over, laying down 87% of wagers and 73% of the handle.
