Florida is 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 6-2 in their last 8 games overall while the under is 5-2 in their last 7 games as a home favorite. Detroit is 0-8 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Florida.

I’m officially done with the Red Wings, as this Detroit team is back to looking like the one that struggled their way to a last place finish ln the league standings last year and sit at 2-10 just 20% into the season. The Florida Panthers have come flying out of the gate so far this season and against the last place Red Wings, I’m not envisioning much change here. Give me Florida on the puck line in this one.
