The Flyers are 4-0 in their last 4 Sunday games, 4-1 in their last 5 games as an underdog and 20-6 in their last 26 overall. The Islanders are 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games, 5-2 in their last 7 games as a favorite and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The under is 11-2-1 in Flyers last 14 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Islanders last 5 overall. The Flyers are 36-17-1 in the last 54 meetings in New York and 1-5 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 12-2 in the last 14 meetings.

The Philadelphia Flyers are too good of a team to go down quietly and getting them in the underdog role does have some value given how consistent they've been the last few months of play. The issue here is that the New York Islanders are a team we've been backing for most of these playoffs and they continue to shine. Outside of Vegas, the Islanders have probably been the most impressive team since joining the bubble, and they continue to cash us some nice tickets. I'm still on the Islanders hype train.
