Sharks vs Flyers Prediction

When it comes to a straight moneyline bet, look no further than the Flyers. Nevertheless, given the payout of -303, you could also think about incorporating this bet into a parlay.

For my recommended choice in the puck line, I’m leaning towards the Sharks to cover. Even if the Flyers secure a straight-up win, this game is expected to be tightly contested, and the Sharks should cover the puck line.

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
