Flyers Penguins Game 4 Odds Preview

The Philadelphia Flyers will try to bounce the Pittsburgh Penguins from the playoffs on Wednesday night as home favorites at the sportsbooks as those clubs meet in Game 4 of their playoff series.

The Flyers increased their series lead to 3-0 on Sunday with an 8-4 home win and at many sportsbooks they've moved to the top of the Stanley Cup futures - where the Penguins used to reside.

Pittsburgh will be without three suspended players - Craig Adams, Arron Asham and James Neal - from their Game 3 actions. Neal is the most important as he led the team in goals and led the NHL in power play goals.

The Flyers sport records of 47-26-9 heading into this matchup, while the Penguins sit at 51-25-6 on the season. The OVER/UNDER records are 43-37-2 for the Flyers and 43-31-8 for the Penguins.
