Blackhawks vs Flyers Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Blackhawks to come out with a win against the Flyers while playing on the road. Considering the moneyline odds at +201, I’m placing my bet on the Blackhawks to win outright.

Our projections have the Blackhawks pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Blackhawks, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.

With an over/under line sitting at 6 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
