Florida is 9-3 in their last 12 road games and 7-1 in their last 8 games as a favorite while the over is 6-2-2 in their last 10 games overall. Chicago is 0-4 in their last 4 games overall and 6-18 in their last 24 Tuesday games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home underdog. Florida is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

I get why the plus money with Chicago is worth a look as the Blackhawks have been kind to use in the underdog role and have made us a pretty penny at times this season. However, the Blackhawks are also ice cold right now and are pretty hard to back given their recent losing streak. I just don’t think the Blackhawks are worth backing until we see some signs of life from them on a consistent basis, so I’ll take my chances with Florida laying the juice on the road here.
