The 2022 Stanley Cup Finals proceed with Game 6 between the Colorado Avalanche and the Tampa Bay Lightning at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday. Colorado is a -115 favorite (risk $115 to win $100) in the latest Avalanche vs. Lightning odds at Caesars Sportsbook. The over-under for total goals is set at six (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NHL odds page). 

Before making any Lightning vs. Avalanche picks, you NEED to check out the NHL predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates each NHL game 10,000 times. It enters the second week of the 2022 Stanley Cup Final on a 23-18 run on its top-rated NHL side picks. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.

The model has considered that Colorado has still been the more dominant team despite coming off a loss in Game 5. The Avalanche have outshot the Lightning 181-140 over the first five games of the series and even outshot the Lightning 37-29 on Friday in the 3-2 loss. The Avalanche have had a decided power-play advantage throughout the series with the exception of Game 5 and they'll look to lean hard on their dynamic power-play units again in Game 6 to close out the series.

The model has also factored in that Tampa Bay has shown impressive fight despite being behind at every stage in the series and have overcome a 3-2 deficit already this postseason. The Lightning came from behind to win their first-round series against the Maple Leafs and also faced a 2-0 series deficit to the Rangers in the Eastern Conference Finals before winning the last four games to advance.

Now, it has set its sights on Lightning vs. Avalanche. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NHL picks.
