Winnipeg Jets vs Philadelphia Flyers 02/22/2020 Betting Odds:
Winnipeg Jets will play their second game of a four-game road trip when they land in Philadelphia. The trip is off to a good start as they asserted their mastery over the Senators in Ottawa on Thursday, 5-1. That now makes it three wins in a row bridging to Sunday’s and Tuesday’s wins against the Blackhawks and Kings, respectively, that capped a previous six-game homestand. They will aim for a fourth straight win against the Flyers, whom they dominated in their previous meeting on December, 7-3.
Players to watch: Mark Scheifele (GP 62, G 26, A 39, PTS 65), Kyle Connor (GP 62, G 30, A 33, PTS 63), Patrik Laine (GP 60, G 25, A 33, PTS 58)
Kevin Hayes came to the rescue on Thursday as he scored in overtime against the Blue Jackets to sweep them in their home-to-home series which started with a 5-1 drubbing in favor of the Flyers. While the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals go back-and-forth in the first and second spots in the Metropolitan, the Flyers are silently digging up their way to join the mayhem above the division.
Players to watch: Travis Konecny (GP 58, G 21, A 33, PTS 54), Sean Couturier (GP 61, G 18, A 36, PTS 54), Jakub Voracek (GP 61, G 12, A 33, PTS 45).

Jets vs Flyers Betting Picks
With the Flyers winning seven of their last 10 games plus a destructive 20-5-4 home record, the Jets will certainly be faced with a tall order. But they have been in these kinds of situations before and it will not be mind-boggling to see them unrattled while facing Philadelphia. The Jets know the formula to defeat the Flyers as they have beaten them badly before. Expect them to execute the same force to upset the Philly fans present inside Wells Fargo.
Score Prediction: Jets 4, Flyers 2.
