The Flyers are 7-3 in their last 10 road games and 0-7 in their last 7 games as an underdog. The Islanders are 7-1 in their last 8 games as a favorite and 16-5 in their last 21 overall. The over is 4-0 in Flyers last 4 overall. The under is 4-1 in Islanders last 5 overall. The Flyers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in New York and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 56-21 in the last 77 meetings.
The Philadelphia Flyers are coming off a rough week and they've provided zero value lately in the underdog role. The New York Islanders are one of the hotter teams in the league, have played some of their best hockey at home and they've worked their way to be the seventh most profitable team in the league currently. Those who have followed along know the Islanders are a team I blindly back a lot. With the cheap price, hard not to side with the Islanders at home.
