If you have been betting hockey this year, you noticed that OVERs were cashing in a ridiculous rate from the early going. That trend has levelled off since many teams seem to have found their bearings. The Philadelphia Flyers, however, haven’t.
They’ve cashed 11 OVERs within their 16 matches and have two UNDERs. Their games have experienced by far the maximum average of complete goals as they have scored the second-most in the league and are tied together with the Calgary Flames for allowing the most.
If you had chucked $100 on every Flyers’ OVER this season, it would’ve profited you just seven $100 bills but watch out for high complete matchups as I’ve even cashed a few complete props of OVER 6.5 and even an OVER 7.5 if they played the Leafs past Friday.
I do not anticipate this trend changing much. Their goaltending and defense have been awful, and they just lost Michal Neuvirth for an extended period and were forced to call up Anthony Stolarz from Lehigh Valley from the AHL. Additionally, they play in the highest-scoring branch in baseball and also the Flyers can flat out score.
A surprising trend over the OVER fad is that the O/U is 10-2 if Philly’s matches have closed using a total of 5.5 and is 1-1-2 when they’ve closed at 5. This means is that if the Flyers are getting totals of 5.5, Vegas is pretty damn sure their games are going to have goals.
I suggest riding this OVER whenever the total is 5.5 or the Flyers are up against some other team in the bottom half of goals given up per game.
With that advice, you will want to take that OVER if they go up from the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday. The Jets have given up the fifth-most goals in the league and with both teams’ offenses clicking, we can see a replica of their match in 2011 that resulted in a 9-8 Jets’ win.
Maybe keep on the lookout for the ol’ OVER 16.5. I’m of course kidding but I’ll be making a big bet on the OVER 5.5 and that I shall be on the lookout for props offering bigger totals.
