Bruins vs Panthers Prediction & Pick

The Bruins have a chance to put the Panthers in a stranglehold on Sunday. There's a good chance of that happening, too. Florida has been terrible at FLA Live Arena, where it's lost five of its last seven games, including three by multi-goal margins. Meanwhile, Boston owns a nine-game winning streak on the road, nearly doubling its opponents' goal output (39-20).

The key to success is for the Bruins to get off to another hot start, just like they did on Friday. They scored 4 straight goals before the Panthers even potted one, which didn't happen until 14:41 in the third period. Considering how Boston was without top centers Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci in that victory, it's clear who the better team is.

Back the Bruins returning to Boston with a chance to eliminate the Panthers.

Final Score Prediction: Bruins: 3 | Panthers: 1

Bruins vs Panthers Best Bet

I'm going with the Bruins on the 60-minute moneyline (+100) as the best bet for Game 4. This series has yet to see overtime and that trend will continue on Sunday. Boston has won six of its last seven games without needing to go to OT once. Meanwhile, Florida has played past regulation just once in its past 10 outings.

With the Bruins motivated by a chance to return to Boston with a 3-1 lead, back them to stand tall after 60 minutes.

Bet: 60-Minute Moneyline — Bruins (+105)
