Carolina is listed as a -385 home favorite while Philadelphia is a +310 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals
For Philadelphia, Tony DeAngelo is out with a suspension and Sean Couturier is out until mid-March while Carolina has Antti Raanta and Jalen Chatfield listed as questionable for this game. Ondrej Kase and Jesse Puljujarvi are both out as well for Carolina.
Carolina’s 6-5 win back on December 23rd, 2022, made it five straight wins for the Hurricanes in this head-to-head matchup.
Philadelphia is 17-52 in their last 69 games against a team with a winning record and 14-44 in their last 58 games played on 1 day rest while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Carolina is 47-17 in their last 64 home games and 38-17 in their last 55 games overall while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 home games.
I’m backing the over here. I don’t trust either side right now, but especially the Flyers who have given up handfuls of goals in recent games. On the other side, Carolina is the better team but they haven’t played like it as of late, and I’m not willing to lay this kind of price. Give me the over here as I’m expecting goals on both sides here.
