The Flyers are 12-4 in their last 16 road games and 36-17 in their last 53 overall. The Capitals are 5-1 in their last 6 Tuesday games and 6-13 in their last 19 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 9-4 in Flyers last 13 overall. The over is 8-2 in Capitals last 10 overall. The Flyers are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.

The Washington Capitals are in a bit of a slump right now and it looks like the injuries are starting to catch up to them. The Philadelphia Flyers continue to play solid hockey, have been one of the more profitable teams in the league dating back to last season and just beat the Caps a couple days ago while dropping seven goals. The Flyers have won each of the last five games against the Capitals overall. I'll lay the cheap price with the road team.
