Sticking with an underdog again here on Sunday…
Philadelphia Flyers @ Florida Panthers – PANTHERS TO WIN (+115)
(Note: I’m risking 1 unit to win 1.15 units – bet placed at SportsInteraction)
I won’t have a full write up this morning, as my Sunday’s are dedicated to NFL football, but I will include a few stats here. Both teams enter this afternoon’s game at 8-4-3 on the season. The Flyers have been off since a Wednesday 2-1 overtime loss against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and have lost 2 of their last 3 games and 4 of their last 7. Florida has won two straight in impressive fashion, outscoring Toronto and Winnipeg 10-3. They are 3-0-3 in their last 6 games, losing three straight games in shootout that could have just as easily been wins. The Panthers powerplay continues to be solid, converting at 24.1% on the year and 26.7% in their last 5. The time off in Florida might have had a negative effect on this Flyers team, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they came out a little flat this afternoon against the Panthers, who have playing good hockey lately. Take the Panthers on the moneyline with a generous underdog price tag.
