Flyers vs. Senators Pick

NHL Predictions: Can the Flyers top the Senators in Ottawa? 10/26/17

Can the Ottawa Senators avoid a loss at home when they play host to the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at 7:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Senators are a slight favorite at home, as they are getting odds of -115 to win. The Flyers are listed with a money line of -105 to prevail, while the over/under total has been set at 5.5 goals. Tonight’s game takes place from the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.

Philadelphia is coming off a 6-2 loss to Anaheim at home on Tuesday night. The Flyers are now 5-4 on the season and 2-2 on the road. The Flyers are putting up 3.33 goals per game this season while allowing 2.67 per game. Jakub Voracek has 12 assists to lead the team in points right now while Claude Giroux has five goals and six assists. Brian Elliott is 4-2 in net with a 3.33 GAA and a .876 save percentage.

Ottawa is coming off a 3-2 shootout loss at home to the Kings on Tuesday night to fall to 4-1-4 on the season. The Sens have just one win in six home games this year. Ottawa is putting up 3.44 goals per game this year while allowing 2.33 per contest. Derick Brassard is leading Ottawa with 10 points and six goals while Mark Stone has scored five times. Craig Anderson is 3-1-3 in net this year with a 2.48 GAA and a .915 save percentage.

Bet on Flyers vs. Senators

The Flyers have won two straight and four of their last five meetings against the Senators, and I think they add to that streak tonight. Ottawa has struggled at home while the Flyers bring in some impressive scoring. The Flyers are 8-1 in their last nine after scoring two goals or less in their last game and they also have won seven of their last 10 conference games. Ottawa is 2-5 in its last seven on 1 day of rest. The public is slightly behind Philly in this one, and I tend to agree.
