The Florida Panthers are road favorites of -130 on the ML in this game while Buffalo is a +110 home underdog. The over/under for this game is set at 6.5 goals.

Spencer Knight has recently been ruled out indefinitely with an undisclosed injury for the Panthers while Zemgus Girgensons is questionable for Buffalo for this game with an illness.

Matchup history

Trends

Florida is 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. Buffalo is 9-4 in their last 13 games overall and 5-11 in their last 16 home games while the over is 12-5 in their last 17 games against a team with a losing record.

Pick

I’m backing the Buffalo Sabres in this game. Sure, the Florida Panthers have won 5 straight in this series, but 4 of those game last season when the Florida Panthers ran roughshod on their way to the President’s trophy for the league’s best record. Buffalo’s been playing the better hockey and Florida’s had some issues on the road up to this point. I’ll gladly take a stab at Buffalo with the plus money as a home dog here.
