The Flyers are 26-10 in their last 36 home games and 24-10 in their last 34 overall. The Islanders are 3-10 in their last 13 Saturday games and 0-4 in their last 4 road games. The under is 8-1-1 in Islanders last 10 overall. The over is 6-2 in Flyers last 8 overall. The Islanders are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Philadelphia and 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.

These are two tams I've blindly backed a lot since last season, so I considered the plus money in this spot. However, the Islanders have run into a bit of a rough patch and the offense just can't find any success right now. The Philadelphia Flyers have run hot and cold up to this point, but they've been absolute cash cows at home and in the favorite role dating back to last season. I'll lay the cheap price with the Flyers at home.
