Upsets Rare When Panthers, Predators Clash

Slumping clubs face off when the Florida Panthers host the Nashville Predators on Friday evening. If there has been one constant when the Panthers and Preds meet, it’s that the favorite traditionally wins, as moneyline faves have gone 11-3 in the past 14 between the two teams.

Shark Bites
  • The Predators are 4-0 SU and against the puckline in their last 4 games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Predators' last 7 games against teams with losing records.
  • The Panthers are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games at home.

The Panthers have been struggling at BB&T Center, as they have gone just 2-2-4 in their past eight home games with losses in their past five on home ice. Jaromir Jagr continues to climb up the all-time scoring board and that could continue Friday, as the future Hall of Famer has seven goals and 17 assists in 21 career games against Nashville.

The Preds have won their past four road games while covering the puckline in each, which is a positive change after a dreadful start to the season while traveling. In those four road games, the Predators have outscored opponents 17-3 while notching at least four goals on three occasions.
