Florida is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 5-1-1 in their last 7 games overall. Detroit is 10-21 in their last 31 home games and 12-47 in their last 59 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games as an underdog. Florida is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams in Detroit.

I get why a home dog is tempting in most spots, but let’s be honest here. The Detroit Red Wings are back to looking like the team that struggled their way to a last place finish last season and were eliminated from the playoffs a month before the second team was eliminated from playoff contention. This Red Wings team that showed promise early on in the season is no more, they’re long gone. Florida’s the better team here with the better goaltender and better pretty much everything else. I just don’t see any other way to spin it here except to back Florida on the puck line and call it a day.
