Devils vs Flyers Prediction

For a moneyline bet, I’m backing the Flyers to secure a victory over the Devils at home. With the moneyline currently set at -123, I’m locking in my bet on the Flyers straight-up.

If you’re looking for my recommendation on the puck line, I suggest taking the Devils to cover. Even if the Flyers manage to win outright, this game is expected to remain competitive, and the Devils should cover the puck line.

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6.5 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
