Jets vs. Flyers Prediction
In what should be a low-scoring game for bettors, the Flyers will host the Jets tonight at 7:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Flyers are -180 money line favorites versus the Jets, who have odds of +157 to pull off the rather large upset tonight in Philadelphia. As for the over/under, the number currently sits at 5 goals.
Ondrej Pavelec will be in goal tonight for Winnipeg and against the Flyers, he owns a 7-5-2 career record with a 3.13 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage. In 28 games this season, Pavelec has a 2.72 GAA and a .907 save percentage, which gives us a better gauge on how he’ll perform tonight.
On the other side is Steve Mason, who draws the start for the Flyers. This will be Mason’s sixth straight start and his 11th appearance in the past 12 Philadelphia games with Michael Neuvirth out with an injury. In his previous 10 contests, Mason has a 6-2-2 record with a 1.98 GAA and a .930 save percentage.
The under is 13-3 in the Jets’ last 16 road games versus a team with a winning home record and is 3-1-1 in their last five road games. The under is also 3-1-2 in the Flyers’ last six contests when their opponent scores two goals or less in its previous game. This contest tonight has 3-1 or, at worst for under bettors, a 3-2 final written all over it.
