The Flyers have owned the Thrashers recently according to NHL betting history, having won the last 11 games against Atlanta. Hockey bet odds may favor the Flyers but everything is not in their favor on Sunday. Philadelphia played last night in Montreal so this is a back-to-back situation for them and that is never easy in hockey.
Most NHL betting gamblers are going to take them anyway though, simply because they have won the last 11 in a row against Atlanta. Earlier this season the Flyers spanked the Thrasher 7-0 in Atlanta according to hockey bet results. It may not be as easy this time around as Atlanta is playing much better hockey. The last time Atlanta beat Philadelphia was actually in Philly in 2005 according to hockey bet history.
Gamblers looking at the NHL betting total really have something to consider in this game. Although the earlier game this season went over, games between these two usually go under the hockey bet number. In fact, the previous five games all went under the hockey bet total. Eight of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the hockey bet total including the last four in a row in Philadelphia.
Although Atlanta is playing better recently they are still having trouble keeping the puck out of their net according to hockey bet statistics. They rank near the bottom of the NHL in defense according to hockey bet numbers. Their offense is okay though, ranking about mid-pack in the NHL as the hockey bet numbers state.
Philadelphia has been an up and down team this season and injuries are playing a part. Top scorer Daniel Briere was out for a while but has returned according to NHL betting information. They are starting to play better but still have a losing record this season according to NHL betting stats.
