November 20th, 2014 Florida Panthers @ San Jose Sharks

Season Record:15-14 +1.06

Let’s take a look at some betting trends for this match-up. Florida is 2-5 SU in its last 7 games and 1-4 SU in its last 5 games on the road. Florida is 6-1 SU in its last 7 games when playing San Jose. On the other side, San Jose is 2-4 SU in its last 6 games and 2-5 SU in its last 7 games at home. Florida is third worst offensive team in the league at 2.2 goals per game. Also, Florida allows the second most power plays in the league at 4.1 per game.

The Sharks lost 4-1 at Florida on Nov. 11 as Roberto Luongo stopped 25 shots for the Panthers. Luongo owns a 1.73 goals-against average while winning three of his last four starts versus San Jose. Luongo will be in net for the Panthers tonight. San Jose completed a 3-4-0 trip with a 4-1 loss Tuesday to last-place Buffalo. The Sharks, who are 2-3-0 at home with the NHL’s most road-heavy schedule thus far, they will have six upcoming home games. Sharks seem out of sorts at the moment and with Luongo winning three of his last four against them I’m not sure they will be able to do much. Looking at the betting I noticed that 61% of all Off-Shore bettors were siding with the Sharks tonight. However, we see movement going the other way. With the Panthers opening number of 2.77 moving to 2.60. This indicates a reverse line movement and possible “sharp” money on the Panthers. I think great value sits on the Panthers tonight as a road dog. Best of Luck!!!
