The Flyers are 4-13 in their last 17 games as an underdog and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The Capitals are 7-2 in their last 9 home games and 19-7 in their last 26 overall. The over is 16-7 in Flyers last 23 overall. The over is 4-1 in Capitals last 5 overall. The favorite is 14-6 in the last 20 meetings. The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Philadelphia Flyers just haven't been able to get of this funk and they've been horrible in the underdog role pretty much all season long. The Washington Capitals have been money in the favorite role, have played some of their best hockey at home and have won three of the four meetings this season against the Flyers, which includes three straight wins. There's only one real direction to go here and that's to lay the juice with the Capitals. You can argue this price should be steeper than what it is, so give me the Caps at home.
