The Detroit Red Wings and the Philadelphia Flyers meet in NHL action from the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Philadelphia and Detroit are both at -110 coin flip ML odds with the total for this game set at 6 goals.
For Detroit, Ville Husso is questionable for this game while Michael Rasmussed is out for the season. For Philadelphia, Sean Couturier is out until mid-March and Tanner Laczynski is questionable with a lower body injury. Travis Konecny is also out indefinitely with an upper body injury.
Philadelphia’s 2-1 win over Detroit on January 21st, 2023, snapped Detroit’s three-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.
Detroit is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games against the Metropolitan division. Philadelphia is 19-60 in their last 79 games against the Eastern Conference and 0-6 in their last 6 Sunday games while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 Sunday games.
I’m backing the over here. I just don’t trust either goaltending group as far as I can throw it as both teams have been giving up goals more often than not lately. This could easily be a 5-4 game at the very least, so give me the over here.
