Two Best OVER Teams in the NHL Meet This Afternoon

For all those people who whine about there not being enough goals in the NHL, there’s a game this afternoon that features the New York Rangers (the highest-scoring team in the league) going up against the Philadelphia Flyers (the team that’s been scored on the most). This one has shootout written all over it and will most likely be one of the most heavily bet OVERs of the year.

SHARK BITES
  • The Rangers are 7-2 in their last 9 games as favorites against the Flyers.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the Flyers' last 5 games with 1 day off between games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the Rangers' last 5 games.

To go along with their goals-against crown, the Flyers are second only to the Rangers in the goals-for category. These factors have led to the Broad Street Bullies cashing OVER bets at a ridiculous 11-5 rate in games where the total has closed at 5.5. The Rangers are 11-7 in the same category and are tied with the Flyers for the most OVERs in the NHL this year.

These trends are a little contrary to how these teams’ matchups have gone in the past, however, as they’ve posted a 2-5-3 O/U record in their last 10 meetings.
