The Panthers are 6-1 in their last 7 road games and 2-9 in their last 11 Saturday games. The Predators are 1-10 in their last 11 games as an underdog and 0-7 in their last 7 games as a home underdog. The under is 5-2 in Panthers last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in Predators last 5 Saturday games. The Panthers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Nashville and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Florida Panthers aren't as hot as they were earlier in the season, but they're still an elite offensive team that finds ways to win games, even if its ugly at times. The Panthers have also taken two of the three games against the Predators already this season. The Nashville Predators have offensive issues that don't help them against above average teams and they simply don't win games in the underdog role. Oddsmakers are catching on to the Panthers, but I'll still back them here with the rather cheap price.
