Free NHL Eastern Conference Playoffs Picks, Best Bets, and Parlays for 5/19/22

The Battle for Florida continues tonight with Tampa Bay looking to leave Miami with a 2-0 advantage over the Panthers. Despite the 4-1 score in Game 1, it was a closely contested game until the Lightning scored two power plays goals late in the 3rd period to put the game away. The Panthers will be looking to even up the series tonight.

We cashed our Best Bet last night as we correctly picked Calgary to beat Edmonton which they did in a wild 9-6 victory. Our Best Bet of the Day record is now 57-39 since the All-Star Break.

We went 2-0 betting the MoneyLine as Both Carolina and the flames came through with victories.. Our overall record is now 371-207 as the playoffs continue.

The run for the Stanley Cup continues today with 2 more games on the schedule. Let’s see what Vegas is thinking about the Tampa Bay-Florida Game 2 matchup.

Tampa Bay at Florida: Tampa Bay leads the series 1-0: The Lightning have a good chance of coming back home with a 2-0 series lead over the Panthers. They parlayed the brilliant goaltending of Andrei Vasilevskiy (33 saves), with the experience of a team that knows how to win playoff games, and came away with a convincing 4-1 win. Tampa Bay is one of those teams that can win 2-1 or 6-5; they are so versatile. They have four lines they can bring at you and keep rolling them out there until they wear a team down. Florida got plenty of shots and didn’t play poorly, but they have got to get the power play going. They were 0-3 in Game 1, and haven’t scored with the man advantage at all, through 7 playoff games. It is going to be hard to beat Tampa if they don’t get that straightened out. The value bet is going with Tampa Bay and it’s worth taking a chance. But, it is only value if you get it right. If you miss, you just lost money. I like Florida and have all season. They are a great bounce back team after a loss, and with their backs to the wall. I’m sticking with them to even up this series heading up the road to Tampa. PAPA DUDES PICK: Bet the MoneyLine on Florida -165
