GAME OF THE WEEK (NHL): MIKE'S TOP RATED MONEYLINE
Tampa Bay vs. Columbus,
02/10/2020 19:30 EDT,
Score: 2 - 1
Money Line: -105 Tampa Bay
The white-hot Tampa Bay Lightning travel to Ohio riding a six-game winning streak, and I think they'll extend it with a triumph over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Columbus is 12-2-1 since New Year, but it has won only three of its last five while scoring a total of just nine goals during that stretch. Such anemic offense won't cut it against a Tampa Bay side that ranks second in the league for goals scored while boasting the fifth-best power play percentage.
The Blue Jackets are one of the better teams in the league on the defensive end, but this is a less than ideal spot as they'll be playing their third game in four nights and I don't see them stopping the Lightning who are 18-2-1 since December 23rd.
10* play on Tampa Bay Lightning.
