Dallas is 0-5 in their last 5 games overall and 0-4 in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1-2 in their last 7 Monday games. Florida is 8-3 in their last 11 games as a favorite and 5-2 in their last 7 games overall while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 games as a favorite. The over si 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I get why Florida’s the favorite at home, but it almost feels like they really want you to take Florida at this price and I’m not buying it. The Panthers have to regress at some points and Dallas has to turn things around and a Stars win here would do noth of those things. I’ll take my chance with Dallas on the money line in this one.
