The Capitals are 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 6-1 in their last 7 overall. The Flyers are 7-2 in their last 9 Thursday games and 30-14 in their last 44 home games. The under is 3-1-1 in Capitals last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Flyers last 5 overall. The Capitals are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Washington Capitals are playing the better hockey entering this contest and probably should be the pick based on their current form. However, the Philadelphia Flyers have still been one of the better home teams in the league dating back to last season, and the favorite has won 20 of the last 27 meetings between these clubs. This feels like the type of game where the Flyers will kind of get back on track and rebound from this hit or miss funk they've been in lately. I'll give the edge to the home team.
