Flyers vs Hurricanes Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Flyers to come out with a win against the Hurricanes while playing on the road. Considering the moneyline odds at +194, I’m placing my bet on the Flyers to win outright.

If you’re looking to get a bet down on this matchup, we foresee the Flyers winning the underdog. However, if you’re not as confident in the Flyers straight-up, we’d still recommend placing a bet 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.
