The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

We talk occasionally about 3-way/60 minute lines, and how the tie could hold value in certain spots because a lot of times you could get 2.5 or 3 times your money if the game is tied after 60 minutes. The three meetings this season between Carolina and Florida have all gone to OT, and I think this could be a good value spot for it.
