Prediction

Flyers 4, Panthers 3

Moneyline (ML)

The FLYERS (+120) roll into Sunrise, Fla., as losers of three straight overall and with a 4-5-1 road record. The Panthers are 4-2-2 at home and are coming off of a 4-3 victory over the New York Rangers Saturday. Two of Philadelphia’s three losses were via shootout and two were by 2-1 final scores.

The Panthers have a neutral goal differential (74-74) while the Flyers are plus-one (61-60). Florida ranks third in the NHL with 34.6 shots on goal per game with 30.7 against. Philly ranks seventh with 33.8 SOG/G while allowing just 29.0 per contest. Take the visitors with plus money as the better defensive team.

New to sports betting? A $10 bet on the Flyers to win outright in regulation, overtime or a shootout returns a profit of $12.

Puck Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

Philly is 12-8 against the spread overall and 5-5 as the road team. Florida is 11-9 overall, but just 3-5 as the hosts. The Panthers’ last victory by two or more goals came Nov. 2, a stretch spanning six games. The FLYERS (+ 1.5, -223) haven’t lost by two or more since Oct. 29.

The moneyline is the more profitable betting play but the spread offers quality insurance with the Flyers having stayed close in losses.

Over/Under (O/U)

Take the OVER 6.5 ( +110). The Panthers are 8-2 against the Over/Under across their last 10 games with Bobrovsky’s struggles in net contributing to those high scores. The Flyers are 4-6 against the O/U over their last 10 games, but they hit seven combined goals with the New York Islanders their last time out.
