Buffalo Sabres vs. Tampa Bay Lighting NHL Betting odds and games preview

Sabres and Lightning Meet in NHL Betting Series at Sweden

November 5th, 2019 NHL Hockey, Online Betting

Last year the Lightning coasted to the Presidents Trophy championship as the NHL’s best regular-season team. Their epic upset loss in the first round to Columbus laid all of that to waste. Tampa Bay never encountered adversity during that steamroller season. Correspondingly, they were unable to handle the Blue Jackets playoff challenge. Perhaps that is reflective in the Lightning’s subpar NHL betting starts. Counter to that is a Sabres team that has exploded out of the gate. Buffalo is responding well to new head coach Ralph Krueger. Accordingly, hopes are high for a playoff spot this spring.
