Philadelphia is 37-15 in their last 52 games as a favorite and 19-8 in their last 27 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games following a win. Buffalo is 14-41 in their last 55 games overall and 8-20 in their last 28 home games while the under is 8-3-1 in their last 12 games as a home underdog. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams in Buffalo.

I’m not trying to get behind either of these teams right now if we’re being honest as Philadelphia shouldn’t be this heavily favored, but the Sabres are giving absolutely no value to the plus money no matter how much we’re getting. Instead, I’m going to back the over. It sounds odd between two teams that have scoring issues the way these two teams do, but the two went over on Monday and I think the shoddy goaltending shows through here again and the total once again finishes over the number.
