If you’re looking for a moneyline pick, my choice is the Senators to take down the Panthers at home. With the moneyline currently at +107, I’m placing my bet on the Senators straight-up.
Our projections have the Senators pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Senators, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.
With an over/under line sitting at 6.5 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
