Money Line Pick
The Chicago Blackhawks have been an exciting team lately and are starting to build momentum based on their winning streak. Chicago has a record of 24-20-6 and 54 points, which ties the Winnipeg Jets for the 4th most points in the Central Division. They enter this game riding a five-game winning streak, which includes a 5-2 home win over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday. Chicago will look to extend their winning streak to six games when they host the Florida Panthers on Tuesday. Florida is currently in 2nd place in the Atlantic Division with a record of 27-16-5 and 59 points. They have also been one of the league’s hottest teams winning their previous five games in a row, which includes a 5-4 road win over the Minnesota Wild on Monday. I look for this to be the best game on Tuesday. However, I look for the Blackhawks to come away with the win in this spot.
Over Under Pick
The Florida Panthers have been one of the highest-scoring teams in the NHL this season. They enter this game averaging the most goals per game at 3.70. However, they are allowing the 6th most goals per game with 3.32. Meanwhile, the Chicago Blackhawks enter this game, averaging 3.04 goals per game, which ranks 18th in the league. Defensively the Blackhawks rank 20th in goals allowed per game with 3.14. However, on their five-game winning streak, they have only allowed 1.80 goals per game. I look for this game to go under six goals.
