Two familiar foes meet up to kick off the 2021 NHL season when the Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Philadelphia Flyers. The home team has won four of the last five in this series, which bodes well for the Flyers.
The Flyers have some value at home, where they were 25-6-4 last season. Philadelphia finished just a point back from the Capitals and the Penguins were 3 points behind the Flyers when the shortened regular season came to an end.
The Flyers being favored does give them an edge on Wednesday, and Philadelphia is a 17/1 favorite to win the 2021 Stanley Cup. Pittsburgh is listed at 22/1.
There’s definitely some value on Pittsburgh in this one, as they are still a team that was 40-23-6 last season. The Penguins just hit a slump at the wrong time, losing 3 of 4 in the qualifying round last year vs. the Canadiens.
Pittsburgh may have seen their championship window close after last year’s late season falters. Sidney Crosby enters his age 33 season and Evgeni Malkin is 34. You want to wager on the current Penguins, not the past.
Pittsburgh also has a goaltender not named Marc-Andre Fleury or Matt Murray starting for the first time in 15 years. 29-year-old Tristan Jarry gets the nod after posting a 20-12 record a season ago.
The Flyers are hoping they have momentum going coming into Wednesday’s season opener. Philly went 3-0 in last year’s bubble opening round and ended up beating the Canadiens in the first round and forcing 7 games vs. the Islanders.
Philly was 7th in scoring last season (Pittsburgh 10th), something that will give them an edge vs. Jarry in net. The Flyers won 25 of 35 games at home last year, even though fans will not be a factor early in this season.
Another reason to like the Flyers is because Carter Hart seems bound for a step-up season in his 3rd year in the league. Hart was 24-13 last season, posting the 4th best GAA at 2.42.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Penguins are 4-11 last 15 overall

- Under is 9-4-2 in Penguins last road games
- Flyers are 19-7 last 26 overall
- Flyers are 40-15 last 55 as a favorite
- Penguins are 6-2 last 8 in Philadelphia
Free Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Prediction:
It’s a good old fashion toss-up to start the season, but Hart is set to make a huge leap this season and the Flyers get an advantage being at home, crowd or not.
