The Red Wings are 22-75 in their last 97 road games and 63-137 in their last 200 overall. The Panthers are 44-9 in their last 53 home games and 41-14 in their last 55 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Red Wings last 5 overall. The over is 33-16-6 in Panthers last 55 overall. The Red Wings are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Florida and 6-20 in the last 26 meetings.

The Detroit Red Wings have been terrible on the road dating back to last season, and they’re running into a Panthers team that just beat them 6-1 a few days ago. The Florida Panthers have been a buzz saw at home all year, their offense is downright ridiculous, and they’ve outscored the Red Wings 12-3 in the last two meetings. There’s no reason to think this game won’t be similar. Give me the Panthers and the PL for max betting value.
