Philadelphia Flyers at Minnesota Wild Betting Preview

The Philadelphia Flyers (21,34,11) face off against the Minnesota Wild (40,20,4) Tuesday night in Minnesota. The Flyers and Wild have only played each other one time this season, where the Wild beat the Flyers 5-4 and outshot them 38-30.

The Flyers are having a very tough season sitting at the very bottom of the Metropolitan Division with only 53 points. The Wild, on the other hand, are having an incredible season and are in second place in the Central Division.

The Wild are favored heavily in this contest having -275 odds to win, while the Flyers have +235 odds to win. The puck line is set at -1.5 for the Wild with -115 odds and +1.5 for the Flyers with -105 odds. The under/over is set at 6.5; the under is -125, while the over is +105.

Philadelphia Flyers Betting Preview

It is no secret that the Philadelphia Flyers are having an extremely disappointing season; they had a very promising season last year, are far from a spot in the postseason, and things just got a whole lot worse.

The Flyers, at the trade deadline, traded all-star forward Claude Giroux to the Florida panthers, showing that their hopes for the playoffs have diminished. They are 2-4 in their last six games and are almost ranked dead last in the NHL’s goal differential rankings with a -58 differential.

The Flyers are coming off a 5-4 loss against the Nashville Predators, and they are led by forward Cam Atkinson, who has recorded 50 points in 66 games played this season. The team has only scored 171 goals, and they need to find the back of the net to see success during the final stretch of the season.

Minnesota Wild Betting Preview

The Minnesota Wild have been red hot during their last ten games and are currently on a six-game winning streak. The Wild made some huge moves at the trade deadline, adding the veteran forward Nicolas Deslauriers and Vezina goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. They currently sit in second place in the very tough Central Division as they look to extend their lead over the Nashville Predators.

The Wild are coming off a huge 3-2 win in overtime against their Division rival, the Colorado Avalanche. They are led by all-star forward Kirill Kaprizov, who has recorded 81 points in only 63 games this season.

The Wild have one of the best offenses in the league, tallying 232 goals this season as they hope to see the offense continue to produce as they try to extend their win streak on Tuesday night.

Betting Pick

My pick for this game would be for the Wild to cover the puck line. The Wild have shown that they have had no issues finding the back of the net this season, and I don’t see their red hot offense slowing down against the Flyers on Tuesday night.

The Wild also have very good goaltending with both Cam Talbot and Marc-Andre Fleury, and their defense has been very strong during their recent stretch of games, only allowing nine goals during their six-game winning streak.

The Flyers also have a very weak defense this season, ranking in the top ten for goals against this season. I do not see the Flyers scoring more than two goals with their offensive issues this season.

The Wild are just the better team going into the contest Tuesday night, and with carrying the momentum of a six-game winning streak while beating some of the league’s top teams, I do not see them slowing down.

Wild to cover the puck line of 1.5 with the odds of -115 is the pick for the night.
