Carolina is 8-2 in their last 10 games as a road favorite and 8-3 in their last 11 road games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Florida is 7-0 in their last 7 home games and 7-2 in their last 9 games following a win while the over is 12-3-2 in their last 17 games as an underdog. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Florida.

I get the case that could be made for both teams but the Panthers recent wins have come against lesser teams for the most part. Carolina just got a nice confidence builder win over the Lightning last time out and I think they carry that momentum over here. Give me Carolina in this matchup.
