Flyers vs Penguins Betting Prediction

Pittsburgh comes into this game towards the bottom of the Metropolitan standings, so they need to start stringing wins together if they want to make the postseason. The Penguins are 14-10-4 at home this year, but they have lost three of their last four home games. Philadelphia is 16-8-5 on the road and they are third in the Metropolitan, but they are on the second game of a back to back after playing the Rangers on Saturday. These two teams are very similar, but I am going to give the edge to Pittsburgh, as they are better rested and at home. Take the Penguins to get the win.
