The Panthers are 2-5 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games and 0-4 in their last 4 games as an underdog. The Golden Knights are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The over is 34-15-2 in Panthers last 51 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 8-3 in Golden Knights last 11 home games. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Vegas Golden Knights lit the Panthers on fire in a 7-2 win a couple of weeks ago and have scored 13 goals in their last two meetings, which is scary given Florida's issues in net. Vegas should be the favorites on their home ice. However, the Vegas Golden Knights aren't the same home team they've been in past years and the Panthers have seem to found new life on this road trip. You could also argue the Vegas Golden Knights are in a bit of a letdown spot after beating Tampa Bay on Thursday, while the Panthers need points if they're going to see the postseason. I'll take a shot with the plus money and the desperate Florida Panthers.
