Bet NHL Action For Saturday, April 7, 2018

LINE MOVEMENT

The Flyers opened at -250 before the line dropped a bit, while the total has remained at 6 goals. Philadelphia range from a -235 to a -250 favorite. New York is between a +190 and +215 underdog. The total is at 6 everywhere.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Saturday afternoon, 82 percent of public bets are pouring in on the Flyers. Online wager info also states that 52 percent of bets are siding with the over.

INJURY TO WATCH

Rangers left winger Cody McLeod (abdominal) is questionable to play today. Right winger Jesper Fast (groin) and defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk (knee) are out for the season. Defenseman Tony DeAngelo (ankle) and defenseman Steven Kampfer (hand) are both out until mid-April. For Philadelphia, goalie Michal Neuvirth (lower body) and defenseman Johnny Oduya (lower body) are both questionable.

BETTING STRATEGY

Philadelphia will be in the playoffs if its gets at least one point in today's game. A loss would complicate matters and could lead to a one-game playoff for the Flyers. I believe Philly will make things easy today with a blowout win over a New York team in full rebuild mode and with its sights set on the offseason. The Rangers have lost two of their last four games on the puckline.
