Rangers vs. Flyers Prediction

I’m on the Rangers here. The Flyers are a solid team that’s had some decent success since the all-star break, and New York’s run can’t last forever, but as long as we continue to get the Rangers at these reasonable prices, I’m going to keep taking them. New York’s the better team in this matchup, and they’ve owned this matchup against the Flyers over the last couple of years. I think New York adds on to that record and gets another win to push the streak to double-digits.
