2-5 in their last seven vs Calgary. 7-3 in their last ten vs the Pacific division. 6-14 in their last twenty games played in October.

Pick Analysis:

The NHL Prediction Model has the Flames at a 51.5% chance to win. Statistically, Florida has the offensive advantage but not the defensive advantage. Trend-wise, there is some good and some bad for each team. I consider the trends to be fairly even. However, I like Sergei Bobrovsky and Panthers lethal offense.  Additionally, the one team the model has shown error with in it’s NHL picks is the Florida Panthers. This is why I like Florida. Now we have two NHL betting picks against the model.

Take the Florida Panthers +105
