Moneyline pick

The Capitals have won each of the last three games in the head-to-head this season, most recently a 5-4 victory in Philadelphia on March 13. 

While the Caps are tied with the New York Islanders atop the East Division, the Flyers are in sixth place and need to string together some wins if they want to make the playoffs.

Philadelphia was one of the league’s most pleasant surprises last season, thanks to stingy defensive play and terrific goaltending. Both areas have taken a significant step back this year with the Flyers allowing the second-most goals per game in the league (3.51) and ranking 28th on the penalty kill. 

Now they face a Capitals team that is second in the league in scoring with 3.43 gpg, while having the fourth-best powerplay unit. Although the Caps rank a middling 18th in the league in goals allowed with 2.95, that’s still a significantly better number than the Flyers.

Washington is fresh off an 8-1 beatdown of the Boston Bruins and is 17-4 in its last 21 games as a favorite. Meanwhile, the Flyers have lost three of their last four—including a second consecutive defeat against the pathetic Buffalo Sabres. 

With the Flyers just 4-13 in their previous 17 contests as an underdog, fade them on Tuesday night.

PREDICTION: Washington ML (-159)

Covers NHL betting analysis

Over/Under pick

These teams combined for nine goals when they last met up and have now gone Over the total in five of their last seven meetings. 

Flyers starting goalie Carter Hart looked like a future Vezina Trophy winner last year but has been brutal in 2021, posting a 3.79 goals-against average with an .872 save percentage in 24 games. As bad as the Flyers have looked in nets they have been solid up front, ranking 13th in the league with 2.95 goals per game. 

Led by future Hall of Famer Alex Ovechkin, and his 21 goals in 38 games, the Caps have been one of the league’s most consistent offensive teams for the last decade. That said, Washington has an ongoing battle for their No. 1 goaltending gig with Ilya Samsonov (2.97 GAA, .894 SV%) likely starting today after Vitek Vanecek got the nod in the previous game.

These have been the two best Over teams in the league all year with the Flyers 27-14 O/U and the Caps 24-16 to the Over. Take the Over again. 

PREDICTION: Over 6 (-120)
