Columbus is 22-50 in their last 72 games overall and 0-6 in their last 6 in their last 6 games as a road underdog while the under is 7-0 in their last 7 games on no rest. Florida is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall and 6-0 in their last 6 home games while the under is 7-1-2 in their last 10 games played on no rest. Columbus is 0-5 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.

I find myself trying to make a case for Columbus on the back-to-back, but the reality is that the Panthers are simply the far better team, and as hard as it can be to beat the same team in two nights, I just think that the gap between Florida and Columbus is too big. Give me Florida -1.5 here.
