LINE MOVEMENT

Philadelphia opened as a -140 favorite before the spread ballooned, while the total has remained at 5.5. The Flyers range from a -150 to a -160 favorite, while Detroit is anywhere from a +130 to a +147 underdog depending on the sportsbook. The total is unanimously at 5.5 goals.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Tuesday afternoon, 87 percent of public bets are pouring in on the visiting Flyers. Online wager info also shows that 56 percent of bets are on the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Philadelphia defenseman Johnny Oduya (lower body) is questionable to play tonight. Left winger Michael Raffl (upper body) and goalie Michal Neuvirth (lower body) are both out until early April. Goaltender Brian Elliott (abdominal) is out until late March.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Red Wings are in a freefall, which will help them in the sweepstakes for the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft. Detroit is currently on a 10-game losing skid, the latest defeat being a 5-1 loss at the Avalanche two nights ago. Nine of the 10 contests were on the road. The Flyers have won two in a row, defeating the visiting Capitals 6-3 on Sunday night. The Flyers have won both games in the series this season and with Detroit totally checked out, look for the visitors to make it three in a row tonight on national television.
