Bruins vs. Lightning Betting: Series Outcome and Game 2 Odds

  • The Tampa Bay Lightning are favored to beat the Boston Bruins by 1.5-goals.
  • The moneyline for the Bruins-Lightning Game 2 has both teams listed at -110.
  • The Bruins winning the series over the Lightning 4 to 2 has the shortest odds of happening at +350.

BOSTON — The NHL Playoffs are in full swing as the Boston Bruins take on the Tampa Bay Lightning Tuesday night. The Bruins hold a 1-0 series lead after escaping Game 1 with a 3-2 victory over the Lightning in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

The first game of this series likely represents what the remainder of the series will be like with two of the top three teams in the Eastern Conference batting it out. The series between the Lightning and Bruins can take a turn for the worst in Game 2 since the Lightning do not want to go down 0-2.

Sportsbooks have the Bruins winning the second game in the series by 1.5 goals. Betting the spread for Game 2 might be the best way to wager, as the moneyline odds for both the Lightning and Bruins for this game are tied at -110. But if betting the moneyline, keep in mind that the Lightning are 1-3 in their last four games against the Bruins overall.

The O/U total for this game is at 5.5-goals bettors should take the under since this likely won’t be a high scoring affair. Both teams are among the best in the Eastern Conference and their defenses will keep this game close.

Winner: Tampa Bay Lightning SU (-110), Under.

Game 2 of the Lightning-Bruins series will begin at 7 p.m EST and will be broadcasted by NBCSN but the Lightning-Bruins series will be one of the closest series in the entire NHL Playoffs.
