The Flyers are 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Penguins are 39-15 in their last 54 home games and 20-8 in their last 28 overall. The over is 17-7 in Flyers last 24 overall. The over is 5-0 in Penguins last 5 overall. The Flyers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Pittsburgh. The home team is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

The Philadelphia Flyers have won three of the five meetings against the Penguins this season, but they're in rough shape right now and continue to provide no value in the underdog role. Even with success against their rival, it's hard to get behind the Flyers with much confidence. The Pittsburgh Penguins have been one of the hotter teams in the league over the last month or so and they've feasted on losing teams. I can only back the Penguins here, and I'll lay the PL for max betting value.
