NHL Betting: Caps vs. Flyers
It’s early in the NHL betting season and the road teams have been getting their share of wins. Washington is on a mission with five straight victories to open the season, and the roster overhaul in Philadelphia (4-0-1) looks to be providing immediate dividends.
The Capitals run into the Flyers as a likely road underdog at 5Dimes in this first head-to-head encounter of the season in Thursday night NHL betting action. Washington shut out Florida 3-0 last time out at home, while their one win on the road this year was over the Penguins - who sit atop the Atlantic Division.
Philly also won their last game with a 7-2 drubbing of the Ottawa Senators, but their one loss this season has come at home. The Capitals did win the last time they were in Philadelphia and they will get a lot of looks on the NHL betting lines in this matchup.
The Boston Bruins (2-4-0) are off to a slow start and they host a renewed Toronto Maple Leafs team during a busy NHL betting schedule on Thursday.
Boston has lost three of its last four games and averages below two goals per game. Boston will be home favorites at 5Dimes in this contest, but the Maple Leafs should get serious consideration on the NHL betting lines from underdog seekers.
Toronto has defeated the Bruins three straight times and two of the last three in Boston. That stat could sway wagers on the NHL betting lines toward the Maple Leafs, especially with the slow start by the Bruins.
NHL betting enthusiasts will be watching for the odds on the game between the surprising Dallas Stars (5-1-0) and the Anaheim Ducks (4-1-0) in NHL betting action on Friday night.
These teams are fairly evenly matched and could be tough to call straight up on the NHL betting lines at 5Dimes. Dallas and Anaheim have made winners of OVER bettors in seven of 10 head-to-head and that could be where the payday is for betting this game.
