Let’s start with the fact that the Philadelphia Flyers are 1-5 in their last five games and have been outscored 9-19 during that time period. Of course two of those games were against the Washington Capitals, who are currently leading the division, but the other three games don’t look that great either. In fact, they are 1-2 in their other three games and include them still being outscored 5-7 during that same time period.
Tact on the fact that they got shut out by the New York Islanders 1-0 and this Phillidelphia Flyers team is very much reeling at the moment. With that being said and the Flyers somehow holding the Capitals to one goal in their last game, it seems like there might be a slight advantage there. Add in the fact that the Flyers managed to top the third-ranked Penguins, and you can see where an argument could be made for them to win.
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers are 4-1 in their last 5 games and while four of those came against the New Jersey Devils, it still showed a level of consistency that will be tough for Philledphia to handle. If nothing else, the Flyers just don’t seem to have the same kind of consistent scoring capabilities that the Rangers do right now. It almost makes you want to bet on the Rangers and just call it a day.
Unfortunately for the Rangers, however, their most telling game was against the Islanders, where they were brutalized 6-1 in an embarrassing showing. That might not mean much to the average sports fan, but it could serve as a litmus test to show how ready these two teams are for each other. Interestingly enough, the Flyers look like the much better put-together team at the moment based on the data.
Their most telling game was against the Pittsburgh Penguins, who were ranked third in their division, but still fell 2-1 to the Flyers. Not only was that a much stronger win than any of the Ranger’s three victories over the Devils, but it also shows that the Flyers might be able to hang better with quality opponents. Whether that theory holds up or not remains to be seen, but it is an interesting case.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Philadelphia are 12-4 SU in their last 16 games against NY Rangers.
- The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 5 games on the road.
- Philadelphia are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against NY Rangers.
Free Philledphia Flyers vs New York Rangers NHL Prediction:
The odds are way too poor to make a Moneyline or puck line bets which pretty much leaves you with the option of over/under. If nothing else, these two low-scoring offensives don’t seem like they can put six points on the board. I would honestly be surprised if either of the teams got above two goals in this matchup. That’s why I’m going to say the Flyers upset the Rangers and win this game 2-1.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Under 6
Take the under, sit back, relax and watch two teams struggle to score for three periods while you wistfully dream of counting your winnings. Although you might be tempted to take the Flyers as an underdog bet, especially with how they have fared against recent opponents, it’s just too risky and probably not even worth your money.
