NHL Betting Trends

San Jose

The under is 4-1 in the last five Sharks games playing on zero days of rest. San Jose is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings at Philadelphia.


The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Philadelphia. The Flyers are 3-18-2 in the last 23 meetings overall.


It's stunning how one-sided this series has been through the years, but I'm taking Philly to pull through here. The Flyers have had a couple days of rest, while San Jose is on a back-to-back and didn't play particularly well yesterday aside from winning the shots on goal battle. Look for Philadelphia to protect its home ice with a victory here.
