The Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers face off on Saturday in an NHL showdown at the Rogers Place. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free Flyers vs Oilers prediction.

Flyers Look to End Small Skd

The Flyers have lost two games in a row and they have struggled in each of the games. In the last game against the Calgary Flames, the Flyers scored three goals, but it wasn’t enough as the defense gave up four goals. Travis Konechny had a strong game finishing with two assists. The Flyers on the season are averaging 2.94 goals while their defense is giving up 2.72 goals per game. The defense is ranked 8th in the league and the defense is going to need to step up here and slowdown the Oilers. 

Oilers Offense Has Confidence

The Oilers faced off against the Anaheim Ducks in the last game and the offense scored seven goals. Warren Foegele had a strong game scoring two goals and added three assists. Overall this season the offense is averaging 3.56 goals while their defense is giving up 3.23 goals per game. The offense is ranked 4th in the league while the defense is ranked 20th. In this game, the offense is going to need to get out to a fast start and they are going to need the offense to step up in a big way. The Oilers will face the Senators, Blackhawks, and Red Wings after this one.

Flyers vs Oilers Betting Prediction

The Flyers defense has struggled the last couple of games and that is going to continue to be the case again here. The Oilers are averaging 3.56 goals and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Look for the Oilers to score at least five goals here, and that is going to be the difference as the Oilers are going to get the job done here with ease. Back the Oilers on the puck line.
