Florida Panthers

Detroit Red Wings


FLA -1.5 Point Spread

Over Game Totals

Puck Line Pick

If you want to see a failing NHL team this year, look no further to this Red Wings team. They have lost their last two game by a combined score of 13-3. How can this team be so bad every single night is the real question here, and it crazy to think they have only won 12 games. On the other side, Florida comes in on a three-game winning streak. They are in the thick of the playoff race and cannot afford a loss to a team this bad. The Red Wings are even a terrible home team, posting a record of 8-15-1. The Panthers are 10-2 against the Red Wings over their last 12 meetings played in Detroit. I really do not want anything to do with this game, but I would only play the Panthers on the puck line or would pass completely.

Over Under Pick

As for the total, the only way I would look is the over. Especially as of late, Florida is lighting up the scoreboard and are averaging 4.6 goals per game. This great offense has come at a price though, as their defense is allowing 3 goals. Detroit always have a horrible defense, but over their last five, they are giving up 4.4 goals per game. This is a game where I see the Panthers doing most of the scoring, but I do expect the Red Wings to get on the board. That being said, I will take the over as a lean.
