The Philadelphia Flyers are in new Jersey tonight where they take on division rivals the new Jersey Devils. The Devils have played the Flyers well over the past few seasons winning 15 of the last 20 meetings overall and 8 of the last 11 played in New Jersey.
Head to Head Trends
Flyers are 5-15 in the last 20 meetings.
Flyers are 18-38-4 in the last 60 meetings in New Jersey.
New Jersey Devils (-125)
The New Jersey Devils are 4th in the Metropolitan Division with 65 points 19 points back of the 1st place Washington Capitals. The Devils are one of the best defensive teams in the NHL allowing 2.18 goals per game but they are also one of the lowest scoring teams averaging just 2.19 goals per game.
The Devils are playing some really good hockey over the past week going 3-0 while allowing just 2 goals. The downside is they only scored 5 goals total and the way they’re playing if they allow two or more goals in a game there’s a good chance they’re going to lose.
New Jersey Devils Trends
Devils are 5-1 in their last 6 home games.
Devils are 6-2 in their last 8 vs. a team with a losing record.
Philadelphia Flyers (+115)
The Philadelphia Flyers are 7th in the Metropolitan Division with 58 points 26 points out of 1st place. The Flyers were playing some solid hockey not too long ago I think they had a stretch that saw them pick up points in 10 of 13 games.
That didn’t last too long as they have now won just 1 of their last 6 games since. The Flyers are a low scoring defensive type team so when a few extra pucks start finding the back of the net they’re a decent team but when things aren’t going their way it’s pretty ugly.
Philadelphia Flyers Trends
Flyers are 1-5 in their last 6 overall.
Flyers are 2-12 in their last 14 in the third game of a 3-in-4 situation.
I like the New Jersey Devils over the Flyers in this one. The Devils goaltending and defense are just playing great right now so they’re hard to beat. I also think parlaying the under with the Devils to win is a solid play for anyone looking for a bit bigger payout especially if you can get under 5.
