Panthers vs Blues Matchup Odds: Florida Looks To Silence St. Louis

Panthers Pit Defense Against the Blues Offense

Panthers Favored Against Blues Despite Recent Trends

The Florida Panthers have won seven in a row, hence why the betting odds have them as -160 favorites against the Blues. This is despite St. Louis having won five of its last seven games and being 4-1 against Florida in their last five meetings. The Panthers vs Blues matchup odds lean on the former though the latter has an edge. This makes this Tuesday game even more enticing.

Panthers Roll on the Road Because of ‘D’

Florida is right at home on the road. The Panthers have won five of its last six road games on the strength of its defense. Overall, the Panthers are giving up just over 2.3 goals as a visitor. They are allowing just 26.1 shots while killing off nearly 86.5% of their penalties.

Whether it’s Sergei Bobrovsky or Anthony Stolarz in net, the Panthers have security in between the pipes. This is a far cry from last season where Bobrovsky struggled until the middle portions of the Bruins series. With their top goalie playing like the two-time Vezina Trophy winner that he is, Florida is chugging along.

“I really do enjoy the opportunity I have, to be the goalie for this team and being a part of this group here,” Bobrovsky told Florida Hockey Now on New Year’s Day. “I am happy to come here every day.”

Florida is fresh off an 8-4 victory over Colorado. Before that, the Panthers beat Vegas in their arena 4-1. But Florida remains a tough team to bet online on the NHL lines , thus the team recently just became profitable on the road. Overall, backers are up over four units betting Florida through 39 games.

The Panthers have mainly been favorites in recent NHL games. They are 20-8 as one this season and take on the Blues who are used to being underdogs. It’s unsurprising given the success Florida has had in the past few seasons.

This team remains a short contender on the NHL Stanley Cup odds . And as it continues to beat other elites, betting Florida will be a pricy task.

Blues Feel Anything But Blue at Home

On the flip side, St. Louis has been easy to support lately. The Blues are up over $600 if bettors wagered $100 on each of their 38 games. That’s mainly due to this team having affordable lines as we see in these Panthers vs Blues matchup odds. St. Louis is 14-13 (14-12-1) as an underdog this season. And many of its wins have come from home.

The Blues are 12-6 as a host on both the moneyline and puck line. While Florida has a stingy defense as a visitor, St. Louis Blues has lit up the Enterprise Center. The team averages 3.5 goals at home. This is despite having the 31st-ranked power play (PP) (10.4%) and putting up just over 30 shots on goal.

St. Louis is converting on over 10.7% of its shots on 5-on-5. If you add goaltending, the Blues are above average on the ‘PDO’. That means the Blues are outscoring opponents even if they are getting outplayed. They have an identical record at home (6-3-0) when outshooting or getting outshot by opponents.

Of course, it’s not all offense for the Blues. St. Louis has held five of its last six opponents to two goals or fewer when playing at home. That’s why the totals went under in four of these six games. And that’s why the total is set at a modest six goals per the Panthers vs Blues matchup odds.

Given Florida’s defense and the Blues’ iffy PP, we may get some low NHL scores in this matchup. The money should be on St. Louis then as it looks to push Florida as it has done in recent matchups.
