Carolina is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a favorite and 64-30 in their last 94 games as a favorite while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games overall. Florida is 20-6 in their last 26 Monday games and 2-6 in their last 8 games as a home underdog while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600. Carolina is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

I get why the Hurricanes may be favored, but the issue I’m having here is that the Panthers have been so good at home while the Hurricanes have had their share of ups and downs on the road. I just see no reason to really favor Carolina here even with the Canes taking the first meeting. I’ll take the plus money at home with Florida in this spot.
