Preview

The Florida Panthers continue on the road and will visit the Vancouver Canucks at the Rogers Arena on Friday night. These teams met three times last season and the Canucks led 2-1 with the 2 wins at home.

Florida Panthers

The Panthers have lost 4 of their last 5 games and are 5-2-2 at home ranking 5th in the Atlantic Division. In their last game they lost 3-5 against the Blue Jackets on the road. Matthew Tkachuk, Aaron Ekblad and Colin White scored for Florida, and Nick Cousins added two assists. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 18.

Matthew Tkachuk leads the team with 8 goals and 17 assists for the Panthers and has scored eight goals over the first 19 games.

In their last 10 games they are 4-6 and have averaged only 3.4 goals per game, five assists, 4.8 penalties and 10.2 penalty minutes while giving up 3.5 goals per game.

Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks have lost 4 of their last 6 games and are 2-3-1 at home so far ranking 7th in the Pacific. They're coming from a tough game against the Buffalo Sabres on the road where they came up with the victory 5-4. Bo Horvat had a goal and two assists. The Canucks also got goals from Dakota Joshua, Ethan Bear, Elias Pettersson and J.T. Miller in closing a five-game road trip. Pettersson added an assist, and backup goalie Spencer Martin made 28 saves.

Bo Horvat has scored 14 goals with 6 assists  and 20 points for the Canucks. Quinn Hughes leads the team with 14 assists.

In their last 10 games the Canucks are 5-5, averaging 4 goals, 4.9 assists, 6.5 penalties and 17.6 penalty minutes while giving up 3.96 goals per game.

 

BETTING TRENDS

Florida are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games.

Florida are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against Vancouver.

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

Florida are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Vancouver.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Vancouver's last 8 games.

Vancouver are 5-13 SU in their last 18 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Vancouver's last 5 games against Florida.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Vancouver's last 13 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Panthers have been playing good lately as they have won 5 of their last 6 games but they have struggled on the road losing 5 of their last 7 games away and are 1-7 last 8 games playing in Vancouver. The Canucks offense exploded in the last game vs Buffalo scoring 5 goals to win the game but they have struggled defensively allowing allowing 4.2 goals per game in their last 5 games. I expect a high scoring game and with the over cashing big time for the Canucks I think that's the best play here.
