The Columbus Blue Jackets hit the road and will visit the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night at the FLA Live Arena. These teams met three times last season and the Panthers con all games.

Florida Panthers

The Panthers have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 3-0-1 at home ranking 5th in the Atlantic Division. In their last game they beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-3 on the road where Sam Reinhart scored twice in the third period. Carter Verhaeghe scored for the third straight game, Brandon Montour had a goal and three assists, and Sam Bennett also scored for the Panthers, who finished 2-2 on their four-game trip. Lundell had two assists and Spencer Knight stopped 32 shots to improve to 4-1.

Matthew Tkachuk who's out for this game due to suspension leads the team with 5 goals and 12 assists for the Panthers. Carter Verhaeghe has scored eight goals with six assists over the past 10 games.

In their last 10 games they are 5-5 and have averaged only 3.2 goals per game, five assists, 4.8 penalties and 10.2 penalty minutes while giving up 3.3 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Columbus are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

Columbus are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against Florida.

Columbus are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Columbus's last 8 games when playing on the road against Florida.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Florida's last 6 games.

Florida are 15-5 SU in their last 20 games at home.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Florida's last 8 games when playing at home against Columbus.

 

Prediction

The Blue Jackets are having a great start of the season and have won 4 of their last 5 games beating some of the best teams in the league. The Panthers have been up and down this season as they haven't won 2 games in a row since the first 2 games and they will be without one of their best players in Matthew Tkachuk due to suspension. The Blue Jackets struggled against the Panthers last season but I think they have been better this season so I'll go with the Canes to win this game.
