Although the Flyers are favored in this hockey betting matchup they are just 5-5 in the last ten games against Toronto.
Bet on hockey is going to be more popular on the Flyers in this game. The Leafs simply are not a good team and they really struggle on the road. The team can’t stop other teams from scoring and when you can’t play defense and play solid in goal you can’t win on the road. This is also a brutal spot for the Leafs as they are in the last game of a three game road trip and they had to play last night at Ottawa. It doesn’t help their chances that the Flyers have won four of the last five at home against Toronto in hockey betting.
It is hard to lay big money when you bet on hockey but taking Toronto on the road simply has not worked out very well. The Flyers have been solid at home in hockey betting this season. They are well above .500 in home games and should be a popular choice for those that bet on hockey. The Flyers can score as they are 6th in the league in goals scored and their defense is not bad ranking above the league average as bet on hockey stats indicate. In this series against the Leafs, six of the last ten have gone under the bet on hockey total but recently that has changed with two of the last three going over. The teams have met twice this season and each team got a win. The Leafs won 4-0 at home in bet on hockey action while Philly won 6-2 in their home game.
The Flyers were red-hot before the Olympic break but they have slowed down a bit since then. They are still a team that can do some damage though. The key will be getting good goaltending. Sometimes they get quality starts out of Ray Emery and then other times he is suspect. If the Flyers are to win games in the playoffs in hockey betting they are going to need better goaltending. A sixth ranked offense is good enough to win games but without a marquee goalie it is going to be tough for them to win more than one bet on hockey series in the playoffs.
