The Tampa Bay Lightning have lost the first two games in the NHL Championship series vs the Colorado Avalanche. They are trying to become the first team to three-peat since the early 2000’s when the Lakers captured the NBA Title from the years 2000-2002. Understandably, the Lightning must be thrilled to be returning home after dropping to 0-2 in Colorado. The Avalanche won Game 1 by a goal in overtime and blew the Lightning out wire to wire 7-0 in Game 2.
BetMGM is the perfect spot to find a wager that fits your desire, and they are offering a $1,000 risk-free bet when you sign up by utilizing the code VIBONUS at sign up. The current odds up at BetMGM have both the Lightning and Avalanche at -110. A simple $100 bet would return $90, but with the VIBONUS code used at signup, the first bet is risk-free.
Last time out Andrei Vasilevskiy gave up 7 goals with just a 76% save percentage. The current total currently sits at 6 with the over bringing back even money and the under laying at -120. A $100 bet on the under would yield $83 on top of the original wager.
While many believe the speed and overall offense of the Avalanche is going to be a lot to overcome, the goalie advantage is not on the Colorado Avalanche’s side. While Darcy Kuemper did not allow a goal last time out, the Lightning only put up some 16 shots. Home advantage might spark the Lighting offense a bit. Among the many full game options available to wager on at BetMGM, a plethora of alternative lines are also up.
Take note that the Lightning also looked defeated against the Rangers before storming back. In that series the Lightning found themselves in a 0-2 hole, and down 2 goals in game 3 before the Lightning came back to win the game and eventual series.
BeMGM is currently offering the Lightning at -2.5 with a +375 payout. A $100 bet would payout $375. This first bet over at BetMGM is a risk-free opportunity up to $1,000. If the bet is a losing ticket, BetMGM will refund the risked money into your account. To be eligible for this promotion, you must use VIBONUS at sign up.
Another wager that can be found over at BetMGM is the period lines. The most popular period to bet on is the first period. It is a uniquely satisfying thrill to be able to cash a ticket in just 20 minutes time. This is also a unique bet given the fact that Colorado and Tampa Bay are both +175 for the -0.5 bet in the first period. Again, all this can be wagered on over at BetMGM, but you must use the code VIBONUS to get the first bet risk-free. The promotion is only for bets up to $1,000.
Whether you want to bet on the full game, a specific period, a side or a total, BetMGM is the perfect place to wager on game 3 of the NHL Finals. Head on over to BetMGM now if you are 21 years of age and in a legal betting state and use the code VIBONUS at sign up.
