Florida Panthers Odds

Latest Panthers puck line, Stanley Cup and MVP odds

Online sports betting is not yet active in Florida. This page will be updated with the latest promos, news and odds once Florida sportsbooks launch.

The Tampa Bay Lightning may have stolen much of the recent thunder for hockey fans in the state, but the Florida Panthers are still South Florida’s team. The franchise made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final in 1996, in just its third year of existence, before losing to the Colorado Avalanche. The Panthers have made the NHL playoffs only six times since, and haven’t won a single playoff series. However, the fan base remains loyal.

These Panthers fans know how good (or bad) this team really is on any given night and may be able to turn that knowledge into an edge at the sportsbook now that Florida is moving toward legal online sports betting. Those looking to learn how can use the following guide to betting on the Panthers in the Sunshine State, including the latest game odds, Stanley Cup odds and player props.

Panthers betting trends 

Information is key when betting on the Florida Panthers. You can use the latest game data, stats and news to shape your betting decisions. Here’s where you’ll find it:

Puck line bets on the Florida Panthers

The puck line is when you pick game winners with a standard 1.5-goal puck line factored into the final score. You can also find alternate puck lines for Panthers games at varying odds. You book puck line bets at the currently posted moneyline odds at sites like FanDuel, DraftKings, and HardRock Sportsbook. Note, though, that the puck line can flip the script, turning moneyline favorites with negative odds into underdogs with positive odds and vice versa.

Moneyline bets

Moneyline betting is where you pick straight up game winners with no line factored in. You’ll find favorites with negative odds and underdogs with positive odds. For example, at BetMGM, Tampa Bay might be -200 favorites over Florida in an upcoming game, with the odds on the underdog Panthers at +150. Bet on the Lightning to win, and if you’re correct, you’d win $100 for every $200 you bet, plus your bet back. On the other hand, if you bet on the Panthers to win and they do, you’d win $150 for every $100 you bet, plus your bet back.

Keep in mind that heavy betting on one side might move the line ahead of the game. A sportsbook will try to avoid being over-exposed to any one particular outcome, so if the public, or even one big bettor, bets one side big, sportsbooks will adjust in an attempt to even out the wagering. Should most of the betting on the game above go toward the Lightning at -200, a sportsbook might move the line on the Lightning to -250 and bump up the Panthers betting odds to +200, just to make betting on the Panthers more attractive.

Totals betting

Betting on totals is when you bet on whether the total combined score by both teams will be over or under a line that the sportsbook sets. The odds will normally be around -110 on both sides, though, again, they may move in response to hockey betting action to try to even out the money on both sides.

How to bet on Panthers props and futures

Here are some of the top options for futures and prop bets involving the Florida Panthers:

  • To win the Stanley Cup: Place a bet on the Panthers to win it all. NHL online betting odds will be available most of the year, but they will shift to reflect what happens during the offseason and as the season plays out. Keep in mind that the odds are usually better the earlier you get a bet down and drop dramatically for top contenders heading into the NHL playoffs.
  • To win the division, make the playoffs, or win the conference: Bet on the Panthers to accomplish these specific goals. Same as the Stanley Cup odds, these odds will shift throughout the season and tend to tighten on contenders as the season progresses.
  • Season win totals: Bet whether the Panthers’ total wins for the season will be over or under a line that the online betting site sets.
  • Player props and futures: Wager on the game stats and season stat totals of individual players. You can also bet whether a particular Panther will win a season-long award. For instance, you could bet on Jonathan Huberdeau to win the Hart Trophy at +3000, or Huberdeau to score a goal in an upcoming game at -110.
  • Team props: Again, these are generally bets on particular stats, but this time team-based. For instance, you could bet on whether the Panthers score over or under 2.5 goals in an upcoming game, or whether they will have more or less penalty minutes than the opposing team.
