The Carolina Hurricanes will be doing battle with the Florida Panthers on Saturday in a matchup that could end up deciding who comes out on top in the Central Division. Furthermore, the Hurricanes defeated the Panthers in a 4-2 contest on Thursday, leaving this matchup a little bit up in the air.
Looking further into the history between these two teams, the Hurricanes lead the series 7-2, including a 2-0 shutout earlier in the year. If nothing else, this could end up skewing the game in the Hurricane’s favor and giving them yet another win over their division rival.
It might even be enough to win them the Central division, which will ultimately determine the seeding for the upcoming postseason. That’s a lot to consider when betting on this matchup, which is why we’ll try to walk you through it.
The Carolina Hurricanes are 4-1 in their last five games, but that isn’t even the beginning of how impressive this team is. Keep in mind that they knocked off the defending Stanley Cup Champions in a 4-1 matchup that had fans quite bewildered.
Of course, the Hurricanes were handed a loss one day earlier by the Tampa Bay lighting, but it just goes to show how powerful this team really is. Interestingly enough, the Hurricanes are also 6-1 in their ongoing series with the Panthers, making a win for Carolina a very likely scenario.
The Hurricanes are also outscoring their opponents 17-8, making them feel like a real defensive threat to any team hoping to win. They also have Alex Nedeljkovic, who has managed an average save percentage of 96%
The Florida Panthers come into this matchup with a 4-1 record in their last five games and are 5-4-1 in their last ten matchups. While those numbers might seem impressive to Panthers fans, they need to remember that the Panthers have only notched two wins in their series against the Hurricanes.
Another troublesome state for the Panthers is the fact that despite going 4-1 in their last five games, they have given up 13 goals in that time period. Beyond that, they have given up ten more goals than the Hurricanes this season, which really goes to show why the Hurricanes deserve to be a the top of their division.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Carolina are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.
- Carolina are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games against Florida.
- Carolina are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games on the road.
