Boston would score four goals in the third, including a second tally by Pastrnak and an empty-netter by Brad Marchand, to win the contest by 5-3 final. Bruins goaltender Jaroslav Halak made 23 saves. and with the win, Boston now heads into this contest on a 5-0-1 run over their last six games.

The Flyers swept the New York Islanders in a two-game set over the weekend, which extended their winning streak to four straight games. Young forward Joel Farabee has been hot, scoring four goals in his last five contests.

Bets We Like With a Flyers Win

James van Riemsdyk to Score a Goal Anytime (+300 BetMGM)

The 31-year old forward now has five goals and eight assists on the season, and I like for him to get on the board with a goal tonight if the Flyers are going to have a chance to win this contest. Riemsdyk has fared well against Boston in his career, scoring 12 goals and 16 assists in 38 games versus the Bruins.

Bets We Like With a Bruins Win

Bruins Team Total OVER 3 Goals (-115, BetMGM)

The Boston Bruins came out in the third period of Monday’s game versus Washington with a head full of steam, firing off shots galore en route to their 5-3 comeback. They will need to carry over that momentum at the start of this contest tonight if they wish to pick up a third consecutive victory against Philly. I like for the Bruins to score over 3 goals this evening.

Bets We Like Independent of the Outcome

Full Game OVER 5.5 (+110, BetMGM)

The Flyers have been cashing over tickets left and right this season, going 7-3 over their last 10 games. While the Bruins started their campaign with three straight unders, the tide has shifted a bit, with the B’s going 4-2 to the over in their last six games. I expect to see a frantic pace early in this contest, leading to more scoring chances before settling into a solid pace.

Game to end in a Tie After Regulation (+310 at DraftKings)

NOTE: This play is listed under different names depending on your sportsbook of choice. Some call this a 60-minute line, others a three-way line or regulation line.

In nine games this season, Boston has gone to overtime in five of those contests, including in each of the first meetings to start a two-game set. The Flyers have played in back-to-back overtime contests against New York this past weekend and four of the last seven meetings between these two clubs have gone past regulation.

Bruins vs. Flyers Prediction

Both teams come in riding respective hot streaks, and this should make for a fiercely competitive battle.

I like for the road squad Bruins to come in and pick up the 4-3 victory in overtime.
