Washington is 7-0 in their last 7 road games and 13-4 in their last 17 games. The over is 9-4 in Washington’s last 13 Wednesday games. Philadelphia is 4-9 in their last 13 home games and 10-28 in their last 38 games against the Metropolitan. The over is 4-0 in Philadelphia’s last 4 home games. Washington is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings in Philadelphia.
Philadelphia hasn’t had a ton of success this season, but they have won four of their last five games and they have been much better on defense. The Flyers are allowing 3.22 goals against per game this season, but they have only allowed 11 goals in their last five games. Washington has alternated wins and losses over their last five games and is sitting in fourth place of the Metropolitan standings. This should be a great game, but I am going to take the Flyers at home with their recent momentum.
