On Thursday night, the Philadelphia Flyers (13-18-8) will try not to become just the second team in franchise history to have two 10-game losing streaks in the same season when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets (17-18-1) at Wells Fargo Center. It is the first of three meetings between the Metropolitan Division rivals. The two teams will play a home-and-home series on April 5 and April 7.

Let’s get into our Flyers vs. Blue Jackets betting pick with player prop predictions, odds, and analysis for this January 20, 2022 matchup.

Flyers-Blue Jackets Preview

Flyers fans may not have a reason to go to the arena to watch the team play right now, but tonight would be a good night to grab those last minute tickets and get down to the building.

Not because you will be treated to good hockey, mind you. Ha. Not with two teams with nowhere to go but down in the standings.

No, because it’ll be Jake Voracek’s first game back in Philadelphia since he was traded for Cam Atkinson before the season. It will be Atkinson’s first game against his former team as well.

Aside from that, the Flyers have played better over their last three games, all losses to New York teams, and they will look to build on that momentum. Carter Hart was really good in net against the Islanders, too, and he’ll be back in there tonight.

But is there anything else to really like about this Flyers team right now? No. They’ve been crushed by injuries, were greatly impacted by COVID and now are just going to “play out the string,” which is a very long piece of yarn.

As for the Blue Jackets, they score a little bit, but are terrible defensively and allow 3.61 goals per game, 31st in the NHL.

Boone Jenner has three goals in his last five games and Gustav Nyquist has five points in the past five games to lead the offense. Elvis Merlikins gets the start in goal.

The Flyers have lost nine straight games and somehow are a favorite over a team with a better record. Go figure.

Atkinson has been a consistent scorer for the Flyers, as he leads the team in goals with 15. He would love to get one against his old team. Look for him to tally one tonight.

Elvis Merzlikins OVER 29.5 saves (-120, FanDuel Sportsbook)

Both of these teams give up a lot of shots, but Columbus is one of the worst defensive teams in the NHL. The Flyers have been better lately getting shots on goal. Ergo, Merzlikins is going to be busy. We see the Flyers getting 35-plus shots tonight, which should all but lock up this bet for you – unless Merlikins gets pulled early.

Oh, come on. You wouldn’t have expected us not to ride this emotion of a beloved player returning. Although Voracek has just one goal this season, if he’s going to get a second you know he’s going to try and get it here, in Philadelphia.

And besides, the Flyers have given up several goals lately to guys with either one goal, or who hadn’t scored in eons. This would be classic Flyers to let this happen. It’s worth the bet for the outcome you are expecting anyway. Just have fun with it and bet it.

Flyers vs. Blue Jackets Prediction

The Flyers want to avoid history. One 10-game losing streak was enough. They finally get another W tonight.

Prediction: Flyers 5, Blue Jackets 3
