The under is 13-5-1 in Bruins last 19 overall. The over is 15-6 in Flyers last 21 overall. The Bruins are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Philadelphia and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The favorite is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Boston Bruins have had issues stringing together wins as of late, but they've played some of their best recent hockey on the road and just beat up on the Flyers a couple days ago. The Bruins have also won six of the seven meetings against the Flyers this season overall. The Philadelphia Flyers are still having issues on the defensive side, can't win games and are quickly becoming one of the worst teams in the league to back in terms of money lost. Early games often favor the home team, but give me the Bruins and the cheap price.
