Panthers vs. Devils Prediction

I’m on the Panthers here. I’m not looking to step in front of Florida right now, especially when we’re getting them at favorable prices. The Devils have been less effective at home this season to begin with and the Panthers won the first meeting between these two in New Jersey earlier this year, making it 5 wins in their last 6 trips to the Garden State. I’ll side with the Panthers in this one.
