Friday NHL Free Pick
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Sabres a –115 money line favorite over the Flyers, who are +106. Game time tonight is set at 7:30PM ET.
The Flyers come into Friday night’s game with a 46-23-4-7 record overall and are 25-11-2-2 on the road. According to latest NHL trends, the under is 45-35 in all Philadelphia games this season and 21-19 when the Flyers have played on the road.
The Sabres head into tonight’s contest with a 41-29-9-1 overall record and are 20-16-3-1 at HSBC Arena. The over is 40-38 in all Buffalo games this season and 21-18 when the Sabres have played at home.
NHL Free Pick: The Flyers have won all three meetings between these two teams this season, but with the playoffs on the line tonight for the Sabres, I like their chances of coming out on top. Thomas Vanek, Tim Connolly and Jhonas Enroth are coming off solid performances in a 4-2 win over the Lightning on Tuesday and this is a Buffalo team that is 18-8-5 since the All-Star break. The Flyers are 0-4 in their last four games, while the Sabres are 4-0 in their last four home games. Lay the juice and take Buffalo.
