Sabres vs Panthers Odds and Betting Trends

The Panthers have won 12 of 13 home games entering Thursday’s clash with the Sabres at FLA Live Arena. Buffalo is listed as heavy +250 road underdogs as they aim to improve their 2-5-2 road record. The Sabres have lost six of their last seven games overall.

There isn’t much value taking the Panthers on the moneyline considering the heavy juice involved, but the puck line is a smart play. The Panthers are scoring a whopping 4.31 goals per game on home ice this season, while the Sabres are giving up almost four goals against per game on the road.

Sabres vs Panthers Recent Results

Date Home-Away Moneyline Puck Line Over/Under
01/04/20 BUF 3 – FLA 2 BUF BUF Under
11/24/19 FLA 2 – BUF 5 BUF BUF Over
10/11/19 BUF 3 – FLA 2 SO BUF BUF Under
02/19/19 FLA 4 – BUF 2 FLA FLA Push
01/03/19 BUF 4 – FLA 3 BUF BUF Over

Buffalo has found a way to beat Florida in recent years, but they are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in Florida. This 2021-22 Panthers team is built different and almost unbeatable in their own barn. Look for Florida to continue their dominance on home ice against a Sabres team struggling to keep the puck out of their net.

Pick: Florida Panthers -1.5 (-120)

Flames vs Kings NHL Pick and Prediction

The Flames are listed as -150 road favorites over the Kings. Darryl Sutter’s team has been rising in the Stanley Cup odds thanks to some stellar play away from home. Calgary has won three straight games on the road to improve their overall road record to 9-2-2.

The Kings have lost five of six games during an extended homestand, getting outscored 22-15 in the process. Los Angeles has the seventh-lowest scoring offense in the NHL and will struggle to score against a Flames defense leading the NHL in GAA. Goalie Jacob Markstrom has five shutouts.

Flames vs Kings Recent Results

Date Home-Away Moneyline Puck Line Over/Under
02/12/20 LAK 5 – CGY 3 LAK LAK Over
12/07/19 CGY 4 – LAK 3 CGY LAK Over
10/19/19 LAK 4 – CGY 1 LAK LAK Under
10/08/19 CGY 3 – LAK 4 OT LAK LAK Over
04/01/19 LAK 2 – CGY 7 CGY CGY Over

The Flames are 4-1 in their last five road games, while the Kings are 2-10 in their last 12 games as a home underdog. Calgary’s Andrew Mangiapane is the NHL’s leading goal scorer on the road, while Johnny Gaudreau is heating up with six points in his last five games. Bet the Flames on the NHL betting line as road favorites in Thursday’s NHL odds.

Pick: Calgary Flames ML (-150)
