The Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning face each other in Game 4 of their second-round series in the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Lightning lead the best-of-7 series 3-0 with a chance to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals again on Monday night. Let’s take a look at some odds and make some picks.

All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Panthers vs. Lightning: Game 4 prediction

FLA: +100
TB: -120

This series is over. Historically, teams rarely come back down 3-0 in a series, let alone a series against the defending back-to-back champs. It’s a matter of if you think the Panthers can snag a game on their way out. It’s possible. Very unlikely at this point. The Lightning appear to be peaking. Andrei Vasilevskiy wants another Conn Smythe. Or is it NIkita Kucherov. I can’t tell. Either way, the Panthers would need a big game from Sergei Bobrovsky, which doesn’t feel like it’s going to happen. Florida has been shut down by the Bolts, averaging a goal per game in the series. At -120 on the ML, we should see Tampa Bay rise as the favorite heading into Monday night. Give me Tampa Bay to move on.

Pick: Lightning -120

Over/Under: 6.5

There’s a crazy stat out there about how the Lightning don’t allow goals in elimination games. Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round was a 2-1 win. Last postseason, the Lightning shut out each opponent to advance in each round. Chances are the Lightning will clamp down with a chance to move on.

Pick: Under 6.5 (-120)
