Money Line Pick
Florida hasn’t had any answers for their recent opponents, losing four of their last five games. Now they get a match-up with the Flyers who are coming off a complete blowout of the Washington Capitals. The Panthers have gone ice cold losing their last two games against a team from the Metropolitan. For Philadelphia, they have a chance for a fourth win in their last five games. There 7-2 dominating win over the Capitals really proved that the Flyers can never be overlooked. Florida and Philadelphia have equally split their last 10 head-to-head meetings. The Panthers have fared far better in recent meetings, winning three-straight. But the teams haven’t met at Wells Fargo Center since November 2018. It has been quite a long time since they last met in Philly, which gives just enough confidence to take the Flyers money line here.
Over Under Pick
After seeing what the Flyers could do against one of the NHL’s top-scoring teams, confidence should be high to see them reach that level again. For the Panthers, they remain top five in the league in scoring, but two of their last three games have resulted in five-goal totals or less. They haven’t quite played up to par, and their current three-game losing streak has pushed the breaks a bit on the value of scoring. At a total of 6.5 for this match-up its a bit of a reach to take the over. Only once in the last three meetings have the Panthers and Flyers combined for a total of more than three goals. Therefore an under 6.5 has to be the play.
