Flyers vs Rangers Prediction

When it comes to a moneyline wager, I’m going with the Flyers to defeat the Rangers while playing on the road. Given the current moneyline odds at +163, I’m placing a wager 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.

For those looking at the over/under line set at 5.5 goals, our expectation is that this game will surpass that mark, and we suggest making a bet on the over.
