The culmination of the NHL season is here and what an unusual season It has been, with a different organisation for the regular season, plenty of drama in the post season playoffs and a Stanley Cup Final series that has gone very much the way of the current Champions thus far.
So much so, that if you want to take advantage of this excellent value offer from BetMGM Sportsbook, then you may well have to get your qualifying bet on today for tonight’s fourth game in the series between the Montreal Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Grab Your Free $5 Bets With BetMGM
So what is this offer from BetMGM? Well, simply put, it is a chance for you to receive a free $5 bet, which you can use on any sports market, every time a goal is scored by either team during a game. To qualify for this offer, you need to have placed a bet of $50 on that particular Stanley Cup Final game in the series.
For example, if you placed a $50 bet on tonight’s game four in the Stanley Cup Final series then for every goal scored by either the Lightning or the Canadiens, then you would receive a free bet of $5 which you can use on any sports betting market you like.
Therefore, if the game finishes 6-3, then you would receive nine free bets worth $5 each (for a total of $45 worth of free bets).
This is such an easy offer to enjoy, but given how the series has gone so far, it may not be around for too much longer, so if you fancy taking a punt on the game and would like the opportunity to land some free bets, then tonight’s game is definitely your best option.
How Has The Stanley Cup Series Gone?
While it was something of a surprise that the Montreal Canadiens made it into the Stanley Cup Final and in doing so they could become the first Canadian franchise since 1993 to win it, their opponents the Tampa Bay Lightning were very much expected to go far into the playoffs once again this season.
As defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Lightning have the best record in the NHL since the 2014-15 season and are in their third Stanley Cup Final since that season. Only the Pittsburgh Pirates (twice) and Detroit Red Wings have won back to back Stanley Cup since the 1990s, so the Lightning would be in elite company.
Since the Stanley Cup Finals began last Tuesday, it has been something of a reality check for the Canadiens. The Lighting won the first two games in Tampa, winning the first 5-1 and the second 3-1 to take a 2-0 lead in the series.
They then backed that up with the first game in Montreal, earning another victory, this time by an impressive 6-3 scoreline. That puts the Lightning 3-0 up in the series and means that Montreal must win their second home game of the series in order to take the series to a fifth game.
The Lightning are the 5/8 favorites to win the Stanley Cup with a sweep of the Canadiens with BetMGM, with the Canadiens 13/10 to win Game 4, despite being the home team.
Who will you be backing in tonight’s potentially decisive game four in the series?
