Panthers at Bruins picks and predictions


Panthers 4, Bruins 2


Expect a relatively tight game, but Florida is worthy of the edge. The Panthers are out-chancing the Bruins and in 8 playoff games have scored 3 goals or more 7 times.

A Florida lean is here, and while a Panthers-by-2 play makes for more risk, the return on the Puck Line is solid. PASS on the ML; shoot for the plus money on getting the Panthers by with a cushion.

Puck line/Against the spread

Florida prevailing by a tally in the neighborhood of 4-2 or 5-3 isn’t an odd-on likelihood. But the return on a Panthers club with mojo makes for a sound investment on FLORIDA -1.5 (+170).


The Over has cashed in each of Florida’s last 6 games, and the Panthers have averaged a robust 33.9 shots per game over their last 7.

The Over is 7-3 across the last 10 Florida-Boston meetings.

Per NaturalStatTrick, 5-on-5 expected-goals-against numbers for these playoffs would peg both sides as being a tad defense-fortunate so far. Expect the Bruins to have a solid game defensively, especially in a down-in-the-series effort on home ice. But the pricing here is solid; in fact be prepared to move quickly to avoid a line change working against you.

BACK THE OVER 5.5 (+110).
