Lightning and Panthers Have Been Cashing OVERs

The battle for the Governor’s Cup re-engages tonight as the Lightning travel across the state to take on the last-place Panthers in Sunrise, Florida. Tampa took their first meeting this season in a 4-3 shootout win and will come in this evening as the road favorite.

SHARK BITES
  • Tampa Bay is 10-3 on the puckline in its last 13 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in 3 of the Lightning's last 4 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the Panthers' last 5 games as underdog.

Division games could be tough to win all year as the Atlantic is looking like it might be the most competitive division in the NHL. Despite being in last place, the Panthers sit just four points back of the Lightning for second in the division.

Florida has been good at home this year with a 4-2 record at the BB&T Center with the two losses coming against the Capitals and Bruins. The Lightning’s last road game came on the tail of a six-game road trip that resulted in a 3-3 record in which they were also 3-3 on the puckline.

The Panthers have historically had more success against the Lightning than they’ve had against any other team in the league. Although it won’t be a grueling road game for Tampa, I like the home underdog value in this one.
