According to ESPN Stats & Info, teams with a 2-0 series lead in a best-of-seven Stanley Cup Final go on to hoist the Cup 90.6% of the time (48-5). That percentage jumps to 92.7% for teams that win their first two games at home (38-3). What's in store for Game 3? Here are some wagers we have our eye on:

Stanley Cup Final Game 3: Vegas Golden Knights at Florida Panthers
Puck line: Florida -1.5
Money line: Vegas (+100), Florida (-120)
Wyshynski: Golden Knights Money Line (+100) These odds have dropped from the opening line, I snuck in at +105. The fact that Vegas is even money in a must-win Game 3 for the Panthers is a snapshot of where this series sits: One team peaking at the right time, playing outstanding defensively and unflappably in the face of their opponents' aggression. And the other team is the Panthers.
