If I’ve ever seen a candidate for an OVER, it’s the Flyers-Maple Leafs game tonight. These teams have allowed the most and third-most goals in the NHL and Philly is actually tied for having the second-most goals scored.
- The Flyers’ OVER/UNDER record is 9-1 when totals have been set at 5.5.
- The road team has won the last 3 games in this matchup.
- Flyers forward Jakub Voracek has four points in his last two games.
The Flyers have so far been the best OVER bet in hockey. with just two of their games having stayed UNDER the set total. This trend is not likely to change tonight when Philly’s high-powered offense slams up against a pretty weak Leafs backline that gave up seven goals to the Kings in its last game. Even after that offensive outburst, the Kings still rank 21st in goals scored per game.
Neither team has had much in the way of goaltending. Of the four netminders with the potential to play for the Leafs and Flyers tonight, none have a save percentage over .900 and Toronto and Philly both rank in the top three in shots generated per game.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this game closes at 6 so if you can find it at 5.5 – go ahead and grab it.
