Rangers vs Flyers Prediction

When it comes to a moneyline wager, I’m going with the Rangers to defeat the Flyers while playing on the road. Given the current moneyline odds at -138, I’m placing a wager on the Rangers to win outright.

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

When considering the over/under line, which is currently at 6 goals, we believe that this game will go over that threshold, and we recommend wagering on the over.
