Preview

The Florida Panthers travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Monday. These teams met in December and the Panthers got the win on a high scoring game 7-4 in Florida.

FLORIDA PANTHERS

The Panthers have won 2 straight games and are 12-12 on the road this season. They have a 37-13-5 record overall and are now 2nd in the Atlantic just 1 point behind the Lightning. Florida won the last of 5 games at home when they beat the Red Wings 6-2 on Saturday.

Barkov leads the Panthers with 25 goals and has 47 points. Justin Huberdeau has 76 pts and 58 assists for Florida.

In their last 10 games the Panthers are 6-4, averaging 4.3 goals, 7.4 assists, 3.9 penalties and 8.4 penalty minutes while giving up 3.3 goals per game with an .890 save percentage.

BUFFALO SABRES 

The Sabres have lost 7 of their last 9 games and are only 9-19 at home this season with a 18-31-8 overall record ranking 6th in the Atlantic. They just lost 0-3 against the LA Kings on Sunday.

Tage Thompson leads the Sabres with 23 goals and has 42points. Rasmuns Dahlin has 29 assists for the Sabres.

In their last 10 games the Sabres are 3-7, averaging 2.8 goals, 4.5 assists, 3.1 penalties and 8.4 penalty minutes while allowing 3.9 goals per game with an .879 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

Florida are 14-10 ATS in the road.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Florida's last 11 games.

Buffalo are 16-12 ATS at home.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Buffalo's last 13 games.

Prediction

The Sabres have a bad record at home winning only the 33% of the time but they actually have a good record against the spread covering the 57% of the time at home. However the Panthers are a much superior team and can easily score 5-6 goals by themselves, so I'm liking the over on this one as I think the Sabres should score a coouple times at least.

PICK: Over 6.5 (-110)
