Under Best Bet in Panthers vs Hurricanes Matchup

Two streaking teams will meet when the Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes clash for the second time this season on Thursday. Both teams have been hot lately, with Florida on a six-game winning streak and the Hurricanes winning five of their last six. The Panthers are now just a point out of first in the Atlantic while Carolina remains in a battle for first place in the Metropolitan. Florida won the first matchup between these two and NHL predictions for Feb. 22 have it favored again in what should be a lower scoring game this time.

Panthers vs Hurricanes Over/Under Pick: Under Six Goals

Though these teams combined for seven total goals in their first meeting and have been playing well offensively recently, their defenses have been playing just as strong.

Florida and Carolina each have a top-10 defense in the NHL, with the Panthers ranking second giving up just 2.43 goals a game. That has not stopped for either of them in their recent runs. In their last five games, Florida has allowed 1.2 goals a game, shutting teams out twice in that time. The Hurricanes have also recorded a shutout in their last five and given up 1.8 goals a game in that time as well.

Both teams’ projected starting goalies have been hot as well. Florida’s Sergei Bobrovsky, who has gone 5-0 in his last five starts, is fifth in the NHL with a 2.39 goals-against average and has a .944 save percentage in February. Pyotr Kochetkov, meanwhile, isn’t far behind in seventh with a 2.46 GAA while recording a .927 save percentage this month.

Though both teams should have their chances, with how both goalies and defenses are playing, the game finishing under the six-goal total should be a solid NHL bet.

 

Panthers vs Hurricanes Game Prop Pick: Race to Three Goals Panthers (+120)

With the NHL betting lines projecting a low-scoring game, whichever team gets to three goals first should be able to come out on top.

Florida has had the Hurricanes’ number recently, winning eight of the last 10 meetings between the two teams, including four of the last five at PNC Arena. The Panthers should be able to pull out the tight win this time too. The Panthers have been on a roll recently, playing complementary hockey and averaging five goals a game in their last five to go with their strong defense.

Bobrovsky has also been playing just slightly better than Kochetkov has, and that, combined with Florida’s strong offense, should be enough to help them get the win on the road.
