Jonathan Huberdeau leads the Panthers in scoring with 40 points including 13 goals and a team-high 27 assists while Aleksander Barkov has 37 points with 13 goals and 24 apples this season. Carter Verhaeghe has 28 points with a team-high 15 goals and 13 apples and Patric Hornqvist has 11 2 goals and 3 assists for his 25 points.

Detroit is 26-77 in their last 103 games overall and 8-43 in their last 51 road games while the under is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games following a win. Florida is 7-3 in their last 10 games as a favorite and 10-4 in their last 14 games as a home favorite while the under is 6-2-1 in their last 9 home games. Detroit is 2-10 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings between the two teams in Florida.
The plus money with the Red Wings caught my eye, but it’s hard to really really trust the Red Wings to win games consistently. However, the Panthers haven’t dominated the Red Wings this season, with all but one game this season finishing as a Detroit win or a one-goal Florida victory. Give me Detroit +1.5 as my pick for this game.
