Avalanche vs Lightning Game 1 Predictions: Stanley Cup Final Pick, Parlay, and Prop

Well guys we are finally here, I wrote an article on Sunday afternoon about the finals but that feels like an eternity ago. I have been craving some puck the last few days and am truly sad this incredible season (both for the league and for our wallets) is almost over) but now is not the time to be sad. It is time to gamble, game one of the Stanley Cup Finals is finally here and I am anticipating an incredible series.

I already have spoken extensively about my thoughts regarding both teams, this series, and what to expect in my series outlook article so if you missed that be sure to go check it out here.

Colorado Avalanche vs. Tampa Bay Lightning Game 1 Prediction

As far as this evening goes, I could see it going one of two ways. Colorado now has to face the best netminder in the world and I believe he will cause problems in this series, I just am not entirely sure if it happens in Game 1. Colorado has been getting an insane amount of shots off and just have been relentless with pucks on net so I love Vasilevskiy to get plenty of action today; whether it's a shutdown performance or he lets in some goals, I still think he cashes this prop for us.

Tampa Bay is more than capable of both grinding out a low-scoring affair and lighting the lamp so I expect them to be ready for either. Considering this is game one of the series, both teams are red hot and it is a road game for Tampa I could see goals. I do not necessarily know if we see nine or ten but you all know I love that line of 5.5 and we can get it easily on an SGP here tonight. I think Tampa pushes hard in game one but they just need to take one of these first two on the road. We may be able to cash all three of these here tonight, I would not put them all out if we could not but I think we should easily see 2/3 go our way here if the stars align properly.
