Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Philadelphia Flyers vs New Jersey Devils 01/26/2021 – The Philadelphia Flyers will continue their road trip as they are scheduled to visit the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center on Tuesday at 07:00 PM Eastern Time. It was a topsy-turvy run to begin the NHL Season for the Flyers, winning their first two assignments before dropping three of their last four. The home team, meanwhile, boasts a relatively better record than Philly while sitting at the third spot of the East Division – but that does not make the Devils the instant favorites to win the match. According to the odds, the hosts will enter the game with a +135 price on the match-winner market while the Flyers got the favor with a -162 price to win.

Philadelphia Flyers vs New Jersey Devils 01/26/2021 Betting Odds:
The Philadelphia Flyers will land on Newark to play on their third straight match away from Philly. The tough schedule on the road is taking its toll on the Flyers. The team went empty against the Boston Bruins in their back-to-back encounters last week, falling short in a 5-4 shootout loss on Thursday before absorbing an embarrassing 6-1 beating on Saturday. The most recent end game result is emerging to be a cause of concern for Philadelphia. After losing by at least five goals just thrice last season, the Flyers have already found themselves on the same scenario twice with just five into the new season. They were a complete eyesore against the Bruins last game both offensively and defensively, allowing all of Boston’s goals on just 26 shots while they generated just 17 shots. A huge bounce-back performance then is imperative of the Flyers when they face the Devils next.
Players to watch: K. Hayes C (G 3, A 5, PTS 8), J. Voracek RW (G 1, A 6, PTS 7), T. Konecny RW (G 5, A 2, PTS 7).
New Jersey Devils
New Jersey’s defense was on full display during Sunday’s 2-0 statement win against the New York Islanders. The total team effort from the Devils in denying the Islanders a goal was certainly to be commended, but a special citation had to be served for Scott Wedgewood, who just made his first shutout performance in more than three years while manning the posts. The 28-year-old goaltender was all determined in playing his role against the Islanders as he denied all 28 shots that went his way. Wedgewood’s inspiring performance has made the rounds across the league as most analysts see a potential comeback player in the Canadian netminder. The dramatic script may extend for most of the NHL Vegas Odds, which would benefit the Devils and their bid to contend in the division and eventually for the cup.
Players to watch: J. Hughes C (G 3, A 4, PTS 7), T. Smith D (G 1, A 5, PTS 6), M. Wood LW (G 3, A 1, PTS 4).

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of New Jersey’s last 5 games.
Flyers vs Devils Betting Picks
The disappointing rout suffered against the Boston Bruins will serve as a shot in the arm for the Philadelphia Flyers. The road calendar may go against their favor, but the determination from the Flyers to bounce back should be enough to defy the tough challenge ahead. The Devils will certainly not back down, but it should still be the Flyers raising their fists in victory at the end of the match.
Score Prediction: Flyers 4, Devils 3.
