The Tampa Bay Lightning and the Colorado Avalanche meet in NHL action from the Ball Arena on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


These two teams are even at -110 coin flip odds on the ML with the total for this game set at 6 goals.


For Tampa Bay, Nic Paul is the newest name on the injury report as he’s questionable for this game with an upper body injury while Colorado has Erik Johnson and Pavel Francouz both listed as out with lower body injuries while Josh Manson is out until late February with a lower body injury and Cale Makar is out until late February with a head injury.

Matchup History

Tampa Bay’s 5-0 win over Colorado back on February 9th, 2023, made it six straight meetings without back-to-back winners between these two teams.


Tampa Bay is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record and 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Central division while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Colorado is 1-5 in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 72-26 in their last 98 home games while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 home games.


I’m sticking with the Avs here. Just like I liked Tampa Bay when these two met a few nights ago, I like the revenge angle for Colorado here at home where they’ve been a really tough team to go against and now have the added fuel to the fire after being crushed by the Bolts a few days ago. I think this has potential to be an extremely interesting game, but I’m sticking with the Avs for the win at home here.
