It’s hard to put a champion to the sword in the playoffs, which is something that every team that has faced the Tampa Bay Lightning over the past 3 years have learned very quickly. The Lightning are in their 3rd straight Stanley Cup Final, having won the last 2, and they are back in this series after taking Game 3 from the Colorado Avalanche. They still have some work to do, though, as a loss in Game 4 on home ice would mean that the Avs would be heading home with a shot at winning the cup in their own building. That makes Game 4 the most pivotal of the entire series, which is why it really is a must watch game. The next game in this series is set for Wednesday night in Tampa, and it is the Avalanche who are once again in as the favorite. The goal total for this one is set at 6. It’s time to take a closer look at both teams and how they arrive to Game 4 of the 2022 finals so you can make your bets against their Stanley Cup Odds.

Why bet on the Colorado Avalanche
Over the course of the regular season and the playoffs to this point, the Colorado Avalanche have certainly lived up to their billing as the favorite to win it all. They won 2 of their 3 series by way of a sweep, and after winning the opening 2 games of the Stanley Cup Final, it looked like they might be on their way to another one. This was especially true after winning Game 2 by a score of 7-0. It’s never easy to win on the road in the playoffs, as the Avs found when they lost 6-2 to the Lightning in Tampa in Game 3. That, though, was the first road game that the Avalanche lost in their last 8, so plenty of reason to believe they can win this one. The OVER has now hit in each of their last 4 games, and the OVER has also hot in the last 5 games following one where the Avs were held to 2 or fewer goals in their previous outing.
Why bet on the Tampa Bay Lightning
After the 7-0 loss in Game 2, the headlines were all about the possibility of the 2-time defending Stanley Cup champions getting swept. It’s almost as though the people creating those headlines had never seen this team play over the last 3 seasons. The Lightning were never going to go down without a fight, and while their 6-2 win in Game 3 was a big one, they will be well aware that they still have a lot to do if they are to get the threepeat. They have been very good in games immediately following a win, going 8-2 SU in the last 10 games after a winning performance. Before the final, it was the UNDER that was trending for the Lightning. In games following a one where they held the opponent to 2 or fewer goals, the UNDER has hit 6 in a row.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
We wrote about the potential outcomes of this series last week, with the Avalanche winning in 6 being the one that we liked the most. I am still sticking to that prediction, although I do like Colorado to win a close one in Game 4.
