Red Wings vs. Flyers Prediction
Will the Red Wings' road woes continue tonight when they take on a Flyers team that has been tough to beat at home? The puck drops at 7:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Flyers are only -130 on the money line to beat the Red Wings, who have odds of +115 to pull off the upset. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 5 goals.
The -130 ML price is a nice value for a Philadelphia team that has won five of its last six home games and is 6-2 in its last eight games overall. That's coupled with Detroit's issues on the road, as the Red Wings have lost eight of their last 10 away from their home ice. They're also just 1-7 in their last eight road games when they've played a team with a winning home record.
The Flyers are within three points of the Red Wings and four points behind the Penguins so look for Philadelphia to play inspired tonight. Clearly losing Jakub Voracek hasn't hurt the Flyers, who have gone 5-1-1 in his absence. This is a confident Philly club that should pick up another win at home and inch closer to catching Detroit.
