The Detroit Red Wings are set to take on the Carolina Panthers in what should be a pretty cut and dry matchup for gamblers around the world.
In fact, with the Red Wings continuing to struggle throughout the final stretch of the season and the Hurricanes still gaining momentum, it’s obvious who’s going to win here.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings are 1-4 in their last 5 games, 4-3-3 in their last 10 games, and one of the worst teams in the entire league. They are also 12-11 in that last 5 game stretch, which means they are pretty mediocre on offense and defense.
The Red Wings also got shut out by the Columbus Blue Jackets in their last game, giving them yet another blow to their momentum.
As if that wasn’t enough to make you not take a gamble on this team, take into consideration the fact that this team has only averaged 2.4 points per game.
Compare that to the 2.2 points they allowed during that stretch, and against lesser opponents no less, and you have another reason to not take a chance on this team straight up.
The Carolina Hurricanes are 3-2 in their last 5 games and while that might not sound like the sturdiest record in the league, that stretch does include wins over the Bolts and the Panthers.
Of course, the 2 wins came during back-to-back games, but you have to consider the quality of the opponents they have beaten.
In fact, between knocking off the Lightning and the Panthers, who are both right behind them in the Central division, the Hurricanes seem like an easy pick here. Both teams will also be coming off a 24 hour rest period, which means conditioning probably won’t be as big of a factor as it would be otherwise.
Detroit Red Wings vs Carolina Hurricanes NHL Prediction:
It’s no secret that the Carolina Hurricanes would make a much better straight-up pick than the Detroit Red Wings, but what about the puck line and the over/under?
While a straight-up bet is almost out of the question at this point, there are a few factors that might make both options very enticing. It might even help you make a little extra money in the process.
