Ducks vs Panthers Prediction

If you’re looking for a moneyline bet in this one, we have the Panthers coming out on top. However, with the lines sitting at -377, I’d recommend looking to the puck line as our projections have the Panthers winning by more than one goal.

When making a puck line pick, we’re backing the Panthers to win and cover. Watch for the Panthers to win this game by multiple goals over the Ducks.

With an over/under line sitting at 6.5 goals, we like this game to remain below that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the under.
