Preview

The Carolina Hurricanes will travel to Philadelphia to take on the Flyers. These teams have met twice so far this season and strangely each one has a win on the road.

CAROLINA HURRICANES

The Hurricanes have won 2 straight games after beating the Penguins. Jesper Fast scored 9 seconds into the third period to break a tie, Sebastian Aho followed with his 22nd goal of the season to get the win. The Canes are still 1st in the Metropolitan.

The offense is scoring 3.49 goals per game on 33.1 shots. Sebastian Aho leads the Carolina offense with 51 points to go along with a team high 30 assist. The defense for the Hurricanes is one of the best in the NHL giving up only 2.4 goals per game. 

Hurricanes are 6-4 in their last 10 games and are averaging 3.1 goals, 5.5 assists, 4.2 penalties and nine penalty minutes while giving up 2.4 goals per game with a .922 save percentage.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS

The Flyers took their 4th straight loss against the Capitals. Gerry Matthew had two goals for the Flyers.

The Flyers offense has ended up getting a total of 2.55 goals per game on 30.5 shots per game. The defense for Philadelphia has allowed only 3.43 goals per game and have faced 34 shots. The defense for the Flyers has killed off 76% of the power plays faced, but have converted on only 14.7% of the power plays. 

BETTING TRENDS

Carolina are 10-5 SU in their last 15 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Carolina's last 5 games on the road.

Philadelphia are 2-17 SU in their last 19 games.

Philadelphia are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games at home.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Philadelphia's last 7 games.

Prediction

Carolina is clearly the best team here but I don't see much value betting them on the money line and they're only 14-12 ATS on the road. With the Over haveing cashed in 4 of Carolina's last 5 games and in 6 of Philadelphia's last 7 games, I think the over is the better way to go here.

PICK: Over 6 (-122)
