What is tonight’s Lightning moneyline?

The moneyline is where you can pick straight-up Lightning game winners. That means no puck line to factor in. You book all moneyline bets at the currently posted odds and get paid at those odds if your side wins. The favorite usually has negative odds and the underdog odds are positive.

Tampa Bay might be -200 favorites over Florida in a typical regular season game, putting the Panthers at +150. Bet on the Lightning and win $100 for every $200 you bet, plus your bet back, if they win. Bet on the Panthers moneyline and win $150 for every $100 you bet, plus your bet back, if they win.

Just remember, NHL moneyline odds can change if there’s heavy betting on one side. Sportsbook set lines in an effort to draw an equal amount of betting to each side. This allows them to realize the vig and make a profit without worrying about the actual result.

That means they’ll adjust a line to try to even out the betting again, if the public or big money likes one side. You can sometimes take advantage of better prices on a bet depending on which way the line moves.

What is tonight’s Lightning puck line?

The puck line is where you can pick Lightning game winners with a standard 1.5 goal puck line factored into the final score. Alternative puck lines for Lightning games should also be available at different odds.

You book all puck line bets at the currently posted odds, which can get turned upside down by that puck line. Moneyline favorites can be turned into underdogs if they have to win by two goals or more. Underdogs often find themselves favorites with that puck line factored into the final score.

What are tonight’s Lightning totals odds

The totals line is where you can bet on the total goals scored by the Lightning and their opponent in a game landing over or under a line set by oddsmakers. You lock in all totals bets at the currently posted odds. These are generally negative for both the over and the under because of a small vig for sportsbooks baked in. Bet totals at -105 to -115 odds, shop around if it’s pricier than that.

How to bet Lightning props & futures odds

Tampa Bay Lightning futures and props are also booked at the currently posted odds, which can change for a variety of reasons, but are locked in at the time you place your bet. Popular futures and props for NHL hockey betting include:

  • Stanley Cup: Here’s a bet on the Lightning or some other NHL team to win the Stanley Cup. These Stanley Cup futures are available all year long, but the sportsbook odds are usually better the earlier you can get a bet down and will drop dramatically for top contenders as the season rolls on.
  • Division Winner, Make The Playoffs, Conference Winner: Here are bets on the Lightning or some other NHL team to accomplish these goals. These futures are also available all year long, but again, the odds are better the earlier you bet and drop significantly when the team gets close to being a lock to win its division, make the playoffs, or get to the Stanley Cup Finals.
  • Regular Season Win Totals odds: Here are bets on the Lightning or any other NHL team to win more or fewer regular season games than a line set by oddsmakers. You can book these bets before the season starts at odds with a small vig for sportsbooks baked in.
  • Player Props: Here are bets on Lightning and other NHL players’ game stats, season stat totals and awards. Most of these bets are booked like totals at negative odds for both the over and under. That includes a vig for sportsbooks. Otherwise, they are moneyline bets at the currently posted odds. Bet on 2019 Hart Trophy Nikita Kucherov to win a second Hart Trophy next season at +750 or Kucherov to score more than 0.5 goals in any game at -110.
  • Team Props: Here are bets on Lightning or another NHL team’s game stats. Most of these bets are booked like totals at negative odds for both the over and under that includes a vig for sportsbooks baked in. Otherwise, they are moneyline bets at the currently posted sportsbook odds.
