The Florida Panthers are set to take the ice against the Chicago Blackhawks in a game that could have quite a few interesting betting angles to it.
There might even be some money to be made off the over/under if you examine some of the all-important stats.
The Florida Panthers are 4-1 in their last 5 games and are obviously going to be a force to be reckoned with during the playoffs. They also tout a nice little scoring record of 19-14, which isn’t the greatest defensively but is more than enough to dispatch the Redwings with.
Both teams will also be coming off a 24 hour work period rest period, which means the Blackhawks won’t be able to capitalize off of conditioning.
As for the Blackhawks, they are 2-3 in their last 5 games and 5-5 in their last 10 matchups. With that being said, this doesn’t exactly denote a lot of confidence in the team, even on the puck line
They are also without Adam Boqvist Calvin De’Haan and Wyatt Kalynuk, who were all big contributors to the Blackhawks.
If that wasn’t enough to steer you clear of this team in any straight-up matchup, consider the fact that they have been outscored 16-19 in that last 5 game stretch.
That’s just not a team anyone should take a chance on in this kind of situation, even if they think the Blackhawks can pull off the upset.
Florida Panthers vs Chicago Blackhawks NHL Prediction:
While a straight-up bet is pretty much out of the question, let’s look at some statistics that could help you on the puck line or the over-under.
Interestingly enough, the over-under is set at 6, which could mean that oddsmakers are expecting a high-scoring game.
Another factor that leads to this thinking is the fact that the Panthers have a much better offense than the injury-plagued Blackhawks, making it more likely that fans will see a blowout.

4* Florida Panthers vs Chicago Blackhawks NHL betting pick: Over 6
You might want to go with the over here. Not only is that evident by how good the Panthers are doing at this point in the season, but also by the fact that the Red Wings are usually able to put up 1 or 2 points before all is said and done.
Otherwise, you might also want to just throw your money off a bridge or question your decision-making skills. There is just no good reason to go with the Blackhawks here, even on the puckline.
There isn’t anything going for them and there are no factors that would point to them winning in any way.
