Panthers Love Travelling to Buffalo

The Buffalo Sabres knew this season wasn’t going to be a walk in the park, and their early results aren’t going to inspire much confidence in the fan base. Buffalo will try to give the hometown fans something to cheer for when the Florida Panthers come to town in Saturday’s NHL action.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings between these teams.
  • Panthers are 0-4 in their last four vs Eastern Conference.
  • The UNDER is 3-1-1 in the Panthers last five road games.

Cashing tickets in Upstate New York has been far too easy for the Panthers lately. Florida is 7-1 SU in its last eight trips to Buffalo.

That dominance hasn’t extended to only New York, however, as the Panthers are a rock solid 10-2 SU in their last 12 overall against the lowly Sabres.

Losers of four of their last five, a date with Buffalo could be just what the doctor ordered for Florida. Gerard Gallant’s group have failed to score more than two goals in four of those five games.

A 3.7-1.7 result in favor of the Panthers is the prediction by the Odds Shark handicapping pick engine. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NHL matchups here.
