Market Report for Friday, April 8th
There are just five games scheduled for Friday.
Let’s look at things from a betting perspective:
Boston Bruins (+ 130) at Tampa Bay Lightning (-150)
The Boston Bruins have started to run into injury trouble, as both forward David Pastrnak and defenceman Hampus Lindholm are on the shelf and there isn’t any timetable for their return. This is a big blow to the team’s chances of leapfrogging the Maple Leafs or Lightning in the standings and will increases their chances of finishing in one of the two wild card spots. According to my model, the Lightning are priced exactly as they should be, at around -150. Of course, I’m expecting Andrei Vasilevskiy to be the starting goaltender, though, and I’m also assuming Pastrnak and Lindholm will not be able to play.
Notes: Linus Ullmark will start for the Bruins.
