Sabres vs Panthers Betting Prediction 

The Panthers defense has been strong all season, and the Sabres offense has been inconsistent. The Sabres are going to really struggle to get the offense going here against the Panthers defense. The Pantthers offense will struggle against the Sabres defense that has been strong, and that is going to be the difference here as this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash here with ease.
