PHILADELPHIA FLYERS vs. WASHINGTON CAPITALS PREDICTIONS

The Flyers are coming off a 5-3 loss at home against the Anaheim Ducks last time out on Saturday, alternating losses and wins across the past five outings. Philly hasn't lost consecutive games since a four-game skid form March 25-April 2 against four playoff-bound teams. The last time these teams faced each other was 2-1 on Feb. 26 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia as the UNDER connected. Prior to that, the Caps won 5-3 on Feb. 17. In the only meeting in D.C., the Fly Guys registered a 2-1 win on Nov. 6 behind Martin Jones.

The Capitals have won three in a row, topping three playoff-bound teams from Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Boston from April 6-10. It hasn't been that long since Washington's most recent four-game win streak from March 11-18. Washington has picked up five victories in the past seven games. The Flyers have had their number at home, winning five of the past seven trips to nation's capital.

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 23-38-11
  • ATS: 34-38
  • O/U: 38-34

The Flyers have been skidding for most of the season, and they've shown no signs of pulling out of the nosedive. Philadelphia is 15-43 in the past 58 games overall, while going 16-35 in the past 51 games on the road. They're also 14-39 in the past 53 games as an underdog, while going 15-44 in the past 59 against winning teams.

In addition, Philly has won just five of the past 20 games inside the Metropolitan Division, while going 16-35 in the past 51 as a road underdog.

For totals, the OVER has cashed in seven of the previous 10 games for the Flyers, while hitting in 10 of the past 14 on the road. The OVER is also 5-2 in the past seven as a road 'dog, too.

WASHINGTON CAPITALS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 40-22-10
  • ATS: 37-35
  • O/U: 41-28-3

The Capitals have been playing well lately, but they remain with 90 points and in the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Washington finds itself four points behind the Pittsburgh Penguins with two games in hand. The Caps are also five points back of the Boston Bruins and six points back of the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

Washington has won five of the past seven games overall, while going 6-1 in the past seven inside the Metropolitan Division. It's also 9-1 in the previous 10 outings against Eastern Conference clubs, while going 6-2 in the past eight following a victory. However, the Caps are 3-7 in the previous 10 as a home favorite.

In terms of totals, it's all about the OVER lately. The OVER is 19-7-1 in the past 27 games overall, while going 4-1-1 in the past six games at home. The OVER is 9-1-1 in the previous 11 against Eastern Conference foes, too, while cashing in each of the past six inside the Metropolitan Division. The OVER is 6-2 in the past eight as a favorite, too.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS vs. WASHINGTON CAPITALS BETTING CONCLUSION

Philadelphia hasn't gotten a lot right this season, but it has picked up two wins in three tries against Washington, including its only previous visit to the nation's capital. The road team has won eight of the past 11 in this series, including a 5-2 mark for the Flyers at COA. The UNDER has hit in four of the past five games overall, although it's all about the OVER lately for Washington.

Washington has something to play for, while Philadelphia does not. The Capitals have been playing well lately, while the Flyers have not. Don't play the Caps straight up, however, as laying over two and a half times your potential return is just a bad strategy. Take the puck line despite Philadelphia's dominance in D.C. in recent seasons.
