The Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins meet in NHL action from the PPG Paints Arena on Saturday afternoon. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Pittsburgh is a -275 home favorite while Philadelphia is a +220 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.
For Philadelphia, Tony DeAngelo remains out as he serves a suspension while Brendan Lemieux and Wade Allison are both questionable for this game. Sean Couturier is also out with a back injury. For Pittsburgh, Ryan Poehling is out indefinitely with an upper body injury.
Pittsburgh’s 4-1 win back on November 25th, 2022, made it 5 wins for Pittsburgh in the last 6 head-to-head meetings between these two teams.
Philadelphia is 16-43 in their last 59 road games and 20-62 in their last 82 games against the Eastern Conference while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 division games. Pittsburgh is 1-10 in their last 11 division games and 1-5 in their last 6 Saturday games while the over is 5-0-1 in their last 6 home games.
I’m sticking with the under here. I know the Flyers have been giving up lots of goals lately, but I really don’t trust the Penguins to do a ton of damage in this game and more importantly, I don’t expect much from the Flyers either as their scoring has fallen off of a cliff in a lot of their recent games. Give me the under here.
