If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Monday when the Ottawa Senators and the Florida Panthers meet at BB&T Center.
Oddsmakers currently have the Senators listed as 115-moneyline favorites versus the Panthers, while the game’s total is sitting at 5½.
Last time out for Florida, they were a 5-1 loser as they battled the Devils at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Devils at -115 were rewarded, while the 6 combined goals moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
In their last action, Ottawa was a 3-2 winner on the road against the Lightning. Bettors on Ottawa at +168 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
