Prediction & Best Bets

Based on recent performances, the Panthers have a strong chance of winning tonight's game. They have been in excellent form, outscoring their opponents 24-11 in their last seven games. On the other hand, the Penguins have struggled offensively, scoring two or fewer goals in all but one of their last seven games. The Panthers also have the advantage on special teams, with a 41.7% success rate on the power play and an 88.5% success rate on the penalty kill in their last seven outings. Considering these factors, I predict that the Panthers will come out on top tonight.

In terms of betting, I recommend taking the Under on the 6-goal total. Both teams have been involved in low-scoring games recently, and the Under has hit in four of the last five meetings between these teams. With strong goaltending from both sides, I expect a low-scoring game tonight.

Prediction: FLA wins

Best Bet: u6 Total Goals (-116)

For a player prop bet, I suggest betting on Carter Verhaeghe to record at least one assist. Verhaeghe has been a playmaker for the Panthers this season, with 27 assists in 52 games. He has been particularly effective recently, with 15 assists in his last 18 games. He has also recorded at least one assist in five of his last seven games against the Penguins. Therefore, I believe there is a good chance he will set up a goal tonight.

Best Prop Bet: Carter Verhaeghe at least 1 assist (+125)
