San Jose Sharks
San Jose are having another lackluster regular season. While last season the Sharks had at least a heady start which instilled confidence in a bright future, there's nothing like that now. They got their first points in game six when they defeated the Rangers 3-2 in overtime. After that, the Californians played four more games, winning twice and losing twice more. All that was enough for David Quinn's team to sit 13th in the Western Conference standings.
Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay still can't take credit for their opening stretch of the regular season either, but in the case of the Lightning, everyone knows that they're bound to improve and make the playoffs. Over the past three seasons, the Blue and Whites have made it to the Stanley Cup finals three times, so it's virtually impossible to find motivation for every new game in the opening round of the regular season. In just eight games, Jon Cooper's team has won four games and lost four, sitting tenth in the Eastern Conference standings.

Expert Betting Tips
The teams at the moment have similar tournament positions, but this does not say at all about their comparable level of ambition. Certainly, Lightning is much more experienced, powerful and balanced team, which is proved by head-to-head statistics, according to which they won their last five face-offs in a row with a total score of 26-7. Now the Blue and Whites are the clear favorites, and you can bet on Tampa Bay's victory with the odds of about 1.75 at Betway.
Lately, Tampa Bay not only consistently beats San Jose, but also is excellent on offense. In the previous five head-to-head encounters, the Lightning have scored against the Sharks 26 times (5.20 average per game), which is an incredibly high figure. Proceeding from this, the optimal betting option looks like Tampa Bay's Individual Total Over (3.5) for 2.02 at 1xbet & 1.83 at Bet365.
Our prediction: Tampa Bay will win for 1.75 at Betway.
