I’m not thrilled to back either of these teams, and the Philadelphia Flyers have been garbage on the road dating back to last season. However, it’s fair to say the Anaheim Ducks are the worst team in the league, and them being in the favorite role regardless of whom they play is a weird spot. The value is with the Flyers and the plus money. Give me the Flyers.
