These two teams just faced off on Saturday and it was the Flyers that were able to secure the 4-3 victory.  Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Penguins vs Flyers prediction.

Can the Penguins' Defense Be Better?

The Penguins' defense wasn’t good enough in the last game and that led to the shootout loss. Jake Guentzel did score two goals and he’s going to need to be an X-factor again here. Two games ago against the Tampa Bay Lightning, they gave up two goals and they ended up winning 4-2. The Penguins overall are averaging 3.13 goals while their defense is giving up 2.61 goals per game. The defense is ranked 7th overall and they are going to need the defense to be the difference here.

Penguins vs Flyers Betting Prediction

There were seven goals scored in the first game, but this game is going to be different. The Flyers overall is averaging 2.92 goals per game and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going in this game. Look for the Penguins' offense to also struggle against a Flyers defense that is giving up 2.88 goals per game. Both offenses are going to struggle here and the under is going to cash.
