Posted by: Mike Davis
Tonight’s Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers matchup is prime for the online hockey betting picking. The Flyers come in with a bit of momentum after picking up the last four games consecutively. The Rangers on the other hand, will be looking to extend their current 3 game winning streak over the red hot Flyers. So which team should players who bet on sports take in tonight’s matchup? Let’s check on the odds to find out.
Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers – Tuesday, January 29th
When: 7:30 pm ET
Where: Madison Square Garden, New York, New York
Stream: NBC Extra, NHL TV
Online Hockey Betting Odds:
The Flyers enter this evening’s matchup sporting a 20-23-6 record that ranks them 7th overall in the Metropolitan. That record nets Philly 46 on the season, which places them pretty far behind in the Metropolitan Race. Right now the Met is led by the New York Islanders, who have racked up 63 on the season. But even to crack the top 3, Philly would need to catch up to the Columbus Blue Jackets and their 59 points. Considering how inconsistent Philadelphia has been this season, it’s highly improbably that they’ll bridge that gap. Notwithstanding that fact, tonight’s online hockey betting odds are giving Philadelphia more than a fighting chance on the road. All in all Philadelphia is 6-4 in their last 10 meetings against the Rangers, so there’s some historical precedent for those odds.
Players to Watch: Claude Giroux (14 G, 38 A, 52 PTS.), Jakub Voracek (11 G, 28 A, 39 PTS.), and Sean Couturier (19 G, 20 A, 39 PTS).
New York Rangers
The Rangers step into tonight’s matchup sporting a 21-20-7 record that nets them 49 points on the year. That 49 point tally lands New York at the No. 6 spot in the Metropolitan. Like the Flyers, the Rangers are pretty far behind in the divisional race. Nevertheless, that won’t stop the club from taking to the iced this evening in an attempt to pick up a metropolitan victory over Philadelphia. Putting aside the odds, what do the numbers have to say about this one? Well they certainly predict a contentious matchup seeing as how New York comes in with the 26th best offense and 27th best defense in the league. On the other hand are the Flyers, who sport the 20th best offense and 29th best defense.
Players to Watch: Mika Zibanejad (17 G, 27 A, 44 PTS.), Chris Kreider (22 G, 15 A, 37 PTS.), and Kevin Hayes (10 G, 23 A, 33 PTS.).
