The Tampa Bay Lightning showed what a champion’s heart is all about with a great victory in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Colorado Avalanche. As a result, it’s on to Game 6 tonight at Amalie Arena. The Stanley Cup will again be in the building, but the Lightning will try to keep it in its case. Let’s do three NHL betting picks for Game 6:

This season: 339-297, +58.9 units, (299-247 L546, +69.5 units)

Sunday's NHL Betting Lines To Back

Lightning Moneyline

Of Colorado’s four playoff losses so far, only one has been on the road. Tampa Bay had its eight-game home winning streak stopped in Game 4. While Colorado certainly has impressive road numbers, Tampa Bay is just so tough at home. I like the Lightning to force a seventh game with a victory tonight. I expect a very close game again, but Andre Vasilevskiy is the difference maker. I’ll take Tampa Bay on the moneyline at betting apps this evening.

Lightning vs. Avalanche Under 6

Vasilevskiy is dialing his game up, and that’s bad news for the Avs. He has been beatable for much of the series, but his history in Game 6s and 7s is tremendous. I’m not even positive Darcy Kuemper will start in Game 6. He probably will, but many Avalanche fans are clamoring for Pavel Francouz (6-0 in the playoffs) to get the start. Either way, I think Vasilevskiy will allow the under to hit tonight. I locked in at -125 at sportsbooks.

Anthony Cirelli To Score A Goal

Odds: +340 at Caesars Sportsbook

The Lightning forward has been an underrated presence in the series, and I’ll take him on a prop bet to score a goal in Game 6. He’s tough around the net, and has a nose for rebounds. He’s one of coach Jon Cooper’s grittier forwards.
