The Detroit Red Wings have been fade material on the road for the last three years or so, and nothing changes here with them on the end of a back to back. The Florida Panthers are still deadly offensively, and they’ve been an absolute buzz saw at home this season. Betting against the Panthers at home simply isn’t an option for me. Give me the Panthers and the PL for max betting value.
