Boston won Game 1 of the series 5-1, but they have to be running out of steam following their overtime win in game seven against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

We are not only backing the Panthers to win, but we also believe they can cover the spread for plus money based on the NHL odds available at the top sportsbooks. If you’re looking for more NHL coverage, be sure to visit our YouTube channel.

Boston Bruins vs. Florida Panthers

Wednesday, May 08, 2024 – 07:30 PM ET at Amerant Bank Arena

Against the Trend

Looking at recent trends in this matchup the Florida Panthers have not been very strong having lost 4 of their previous 5 home games to the Bruins.

That said we believe they can even the series up and we much prefer their odds to cover the spread at +150 NHL betting odds than their moneyline odds at -140.

This is playoff hockey and anything can happen. Once the Panthers win, we should have a chance to cover this PK line.

The Pick

The spread has been covered by the winning team in 6 of the previous 10 matchups between these two teams and even more so recently having seen 5 of the last 6 winners win by 2+ goals.

Boston has to be feeling it a little bit now having played four times since the start of May, the Panthers had their round one series wrapped up before May even started, maybe they were just a little rusty in Game 1.
