Flyers Have a Solid Record Against Caps

Wayne Simmonds

The Philadelphia Flyers are starting to look like a team that could make some noise in the playoffs, but before they can prove they're a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference they'll be tasked with knocking off the beasts of the East on Sunday: the Washington Capitals. The good news for Flyers backers is their squad has taken seven out of the last nine clashes between the clubs.

Shark Bites
  • The Capitals are 6-1 in their last 7 vs. the Metropolitan Division.
  • The OVER is 4-0-3 in the Flyers last 7 games.
  • The OVER is 5-1-1 in the Capitals last 7 home games.

Perhaps Philly is catching Washington at the right time. The Caps' power play has ranked as one of the best in the NHL this season, however it's gone ice-cold recently. Alexander Ovechkin and company are a brutal 0-for-15 in their last 15 opportunities with the man advantage during a four game stretch.

When the Flyers take their show on the road, OVER bettors are profiting. In Philadelphia's prior five road tilts, the OVER has paid out four times.
