Money Line Pick
The Kings are going through a rough stretch right now, losing their last three games in a row and six of their last seven. Their playoff hopes are fading every single day as they are now the worst team in the Western Conference. On the other side, Philadelphia is fighting for every point they can right now because they are on the outside looking in. There is still plenty of time, but these are the games they must win against teams that are as poor as the Kings. The Flyers have been one of the best home teams this season, posting a 15-4-4 record thus far. Compared this to the Kings, who have just won 7 games on the road and Philly has the clear edge. That being said, I look for the Flyers to continue their home success and will take them on the money line as a lean.
Over Under Pick
The total in this game is 6 and the under is where I will be looking. This is a play based on the poor offensive showings by the Kings as of late. They are averaging just 2.4 goals per game over their last five. Philadelphia has not been that much more efficient, scoring just 2.6 goals per game over the same stretch. The only difference is the Flyers play great defense at home and that will be the difference to the total staying under. Also, the under is 13-4-3 over their last 20 meetings and I like this play as a strong lean.
