Columbus is getting a lot of early love from public bettors as the Blue Jackets prepare to travel to face the Flyers on Thursday December 6th. The Blue Jackets have lost 3 of their last 4 road games but is up vs. a Philadelphia team that has lost 4 of their last 5 home games. Something has to give when these two squads meet up.
Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus is 6-4 in their last 10 which has helped them climb into 5th in the Eastern Conference. The Blue Jackets offense has come alive lately with 19 goals over the past four games. Columbus did have the offense flowing in a 6-3 win over Philly in October as -160 underdogs. Columbus had just 28 SOG that game and their top 10 scoring and SOG offense should see some success vs. a Philadelphia team that is 29th in goals against and 30th in the PP.
Sergei Bobrovsky got the start in October and stopped 32 of 35 shots that came his way. Bobrovsky has gone 7-3 over his last 10, but is riding a two game losing streak. The Columbus G should have another big day vs. a Flyers team that has scored a goal or less in 3 of the last 8.
the Flyers are in a dogfight – for 2nd to last place in the Western Conference. As it stands are just a point back from Philly for the conference basement. Philly should be doing better as when they aren’t completely limited on offense, they break out to the tune of five games of 4+ goals in their last 10. The Flyers have also held four of their last 10 opponents to two goals or less but it’s still not transferring to wins.
The Flyers are just 5-7-1 at home this year but G Anthony Stolarz will try to change that. He’ll be making just his 3rd start of 2018 and is largely an unknown. So far Stolarz has held 2 of 3 opponents faced to 2 goals or less so maybe he jumpstarts a Flyers run with a solid outing on Thursday.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Blue Jackets are 7-3 their last 10 on 1 days rest
- Flyers are 3-7 their last 10 vs. a team with a losing record
- Flyers are 1-4 their last 5 home games
- Flyers are 2-8 their last 10 vs. East
- Blue Jackets are 16-5 the last 21 H2H meetings
Free Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Prediction:
No team is really sticking out in this game but you have to like the value in Columbus. The Blue Jackets are 8-5-1 on the road this season and are up against a Philly team with unknowns in net. Stolarz could be great on Thursday, but you have to side with the sure-er thing in this contest.
