The Ottawa Senators will host the Florida Panther in this match, and totals picks for today.
The Florida Panthers havent been travelling well,losing their last 3 games in a row, and giving up a truck load of goals in the process.
The Ottawa Senators,on the other hand, have won their last 2 games and have been moving the puck nicely…..
and in turn, putting some goals on the scoreboard.
Looking at the last 5 games for each club in regards to totals,
We can see that the Florida Panthers are trending 4-0-1 to the OVER, with 1 push.
And as i mentioned above they have given up a huge amount of goals in those games,
And still managed to score a few themselves. They’ve allowed 26 goals and scored 15 !!
The Ottawa Senators are trending 3-1-1 to the OVER, allowing 17 goals and scoring 19 goals!
Looking at the probable goalies, we have Andrew Nilson for Ottawa, with a GAA of 3.06 and Samuel Montembeault with a GAA of 3.30
The last 5 head to head have trended 3-2 to the under.
I think this game is likely to be high scoring, both teams are allowing and scoring plently of goals,
with the panthers allowing an average of 5.2 goals a game….and scoring 3 goals a game in their last 5.
Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.4 and scoring 3.6 on average in their last 5.
Both goalies have a GAA of over 3.
Both teams are out of the playoffs race which could add to the chance of an offensive explosion. As defensive determination tends to wain.
The total is set at 6.5, and I’m confident each team can score at least 3 goals here, but possibly more.
Very good conditions for the OVER to hit.
And for all those reasons, Im taking the OVER.
