Who We Like: This is the first-ever meeting between the two franchises. Philadelphia enters on a three-game winning streak, which comes on the heels of a four-game winning streak. The Flyers are 7-3 in their last 10 games, while the over has gone 6-4. Las Vegas has won two of its last three games and is 6-4 in its last 10. The over is 8-2.
I have to side with the under here even though both teams come in stronger lately on the offensive end. The Golden Knights wouldn't be where they are right now without a formidable defense and goaltending. This is an unfamiliar foe for the Flyers and they might not take as many chances as normal. Expect the game to be decided late after a strong defensive showing from both squads.
