The Buffalo Sabres and the Philadelphia Flyers meet in NHL action from the Wells Fargo Center on Friday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Buffalo is a -140 road favorite while Philadelphia is a +120 home underdog. The total for this game is set at 6.5 goals.
For Buffalo, Eric Comrie and Mattias Samuelsson are both out indefinitely with lower body injuries while Wade Allison and Carter Hart are both questionable for Philadelphia. Sean Couturier also remains out until late March with a back injury.
Philadelphia’s 4-0 win back on January 9th, 2023, snapped Buffalo’s five-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.
Buffalo is 1-5 in their last 6 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 games played on 1 days rest while the over is 9-2-1 in their last 12 games played on 1 days rest. Philadelphia is 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 0-7 in their last 7 Friday games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against the Eastern Conference.
I’m backing Buffalo here. The Sabres stumbled against Washington, but this Buffalo team still plays their better hockey on the road and the Flyers just can’t seem to get out of their own way right now. The over could be worth a look as well, but I’m sticking with Buffalo in this spot.
