Goals Could Pile up Quickly at the Wells Fargo Center Tonight

The Philadelphia Flyers have proved that a long winning streak does not an excellent hockey club make. Philly now sits just one game over .500, having lost six of seven games since a 10-game win streak ended. The Flyers will host the Rangers this evening looking for their first win in five games overall and against the Blueshirts.

SHARK BITES
  • The Rangers are 8-1 in their last 9 games as underdogs.
  • The Rangers are 6-2 in their last 8 games as underdogs against the Flyers.
  • The Flyers are 7-1 in their last 8 games at home.

This is a nightmare matchup for the Flyers. Although they’ve been passed by the Coyotes, Jets and awful Avalanche in goals allowed, they still have an incredibly tough time keeping the puck out of their own net. The major problem with that trend tonight is that the Rangers have scored more goals than any other team in the NHL and have scored exactly six in two of their last three games.

If you’ve followed my writing much this year, you’ll know that I love goal total props and this game offers bettors a prime opportunity to take advantage of an OVER 6.5 or 7.5. The total has gone OVER in two of the Flyers’ last three games and has gone OVER in five of the Rangers’ last six.

It’s tough to feel confident about a total prop but you should feel pretty comfortable taking the OVER 5.5 tonight.
