Market Report for Friday, Arpil 1st

There are seven games scheduled for Thursday.

Let’s look at things from a betting perspective:

Chicago Blackhawks (+ 280) at Tampa Bay Lightning (-340)

Kevin Lankinen will almost certainly be between the pipes for the Blackhawks on Friday when they visit the Lightning in the second half of a back-to-back, but because Tampa Bay will play again on Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens, there’s no telling who they will start in goal. Both Chicago and Montreal are bad hockey teams, and the Lightning are likely to win both games with relative ease, but backup Brian Elliott is likely to get the start in one of the games. If Andrei Vasilevskiy is in goal on Friday, the Lightning should be much bigger favorites than they are now, but this is a good example of why it’s important to look ahead at a team’s schedule before backing them in a game. I might take a position on the Lightning later in the day when there is more information available.
