Florida Panthers vs Nashville Predators prediction

The Nashville Predators are worth a look at home where they usually play well, and they’ve won 3 of the last 4 meetings against the Panthers. I wouldn’t talk you off the ledge if looking at the Preds and the plus money in this spot. However, the Florida Panthers are too talented of a team to let these losses linger for much longer. Remember, before this 4-game losing skid, the Panthers were one of the hottest teams in the league with a defense that could do no wrong. I expect that to return sooner than later. Give me the Panthers and the cheap price, as they stop the bleeding with a big road victory.
