Anytime Goal Scorer Odds

  • Tage Thompson +105
  • Brayden Point +110
  • Alex Tuch +140
  • Jeff Skinner +145
  • Steven Stamkos +162
  • Nikita Kucherov +162
  • Dylan Cozens +190
  • Brandon Hagel +225
  • Nick Paul +250
  • Rasmus Dahlin +350

Steven Stamkos, Nikita Kucherov, Brandon Hagel, and Nick Paul are tied for the Lightning team lead with two goals each. However, Stamkos played one less game and scored twice on Saturday against the Detroit Red Wings.

However, the most valuable player to score a goal on Tuesday night is Rasmus Dahlin from the Buffalo Sabres. Dahlin has six shots in two games; one less than Tage Thompson (+105) who leads the betting board.

Dahlin’s long odds at Florida online sportsbooks come from his position in defense, but his offensive volume combined with poor Lightning goalie play makes him a solid longshot with +350 odds.
