Flyers-Rangers Preview

The Flyers might be cooked. They are 11 points out of the final playoff spot and have won just five games in the past 22 contests. Making matters worse, they haven’t won a game in regulation in over a month.

Only three players have been consistently scoring for the Flyers. Cam Atkinson is their leading goal scorer with 15 goals, Claude Giroux is their leading scorer overall with 29 points in 33 games played, and Joel Farabee has 11 goals, scoring four in the past eight games after missing more than two weeks with an injury.

Carter Hart likely gets the nod in net again tonight. He is 7-11-4 this season with a 2.93 GAA and a .912 save percentage.

Meanwhile, the Rangers are pushing for the best record in the NHL. They are doing it behind goalie Igor Shesterkin, an early Vezina Trophy frontrunner. Shesterkin recorded his third shutout of the season Thursday, making 37 saves to blank the San Jose Sharks. Shesterkin is 16-4-2 with a 1.99 GAA and a sizzling .939 save percentage.

Chris Kreider leads the team in goals with 23. He scored twice against the Sharks and has only one stretch all season of more than two games without a goal – a five game span in December.

If you are someone who bets live, in-game, you should always bet the Flyers opponent to win if they score the first goal. Or, if you are late to the party, if the Flyers lare losing after one of the periods.

The Flyers are just 2-14-2 when giving up the first goal but they’ve won just one game when trailing after one period (1-11-2).

The Rangers aren’t the greatest first period team, but there is a trend favoring them here – they have won the first period against the Flyers in each of the last six games. This bet just makes sense.

It’s always smart to look around to get better odds like these when you bet the puck line (which for most games +/- 1.5) when you want to hammer a favorite who most bettors expect to win. It gives you a chance to make some extra cash, without laying out a big nut in anticipation of the  money line win.

It also helps that the Flyers really struggle to cover the money line, especially against Metropolitan Division opponents when they are an underdog (they’ve failed to cover five straight in these cases.) In fact, the Flyers have only lost one game in regulation by just one goal – and that was Thursday in Boston.

When they lose, they lose. And they’re going to lose tonight. Ride this wager.

This is where we like to have some fun with the props. You already laid the bigger money on the Rangers with the puck line and the Rangers to win the first period. Now, you can take a little side cash and hope for a big payout. This is like betting the lucky ladies on the blackjack table – not the greatest bet in the world, but when it hits, man you are loving it.

The Flyers have allowed nine hat tricks in the last calendar year. Kreider and Zibanijad have two each. The Flyers have also allowed three hat tricks in the last four games.

While we’re not predicting another hatty here, that’s really hard to do, both of these guys always have success scoring against Philadelphia. Take the risk. Not a big one – say a third of your usual bet. And if either one hits, you’re celebrating before the first period even ends.

Flyers vs. Rangers Prediction

The Flyers are talking a good game, speaking about the importance of tonight, but they aren’t making up an 11-point gap any time soon, and as soon as they give up that first goal, they’ll remember that’s the case. This one is all Rangers.

Prediction: Rangers 5, Flyers 2
