|Over 5.5 (-125) @ Pointsbet|
This is a 10* TOP THURSDAY COMMUNITY TOTAL on the OVER Flyers/Islanders.
Philly's defense and goaltending was supposed to be a strength this year, but that's not been the case at all, as the Flyers enter allowing 3.5 GPG this year.
The Flyers offense has also been inconsistent, but better in averaging 2.97 GPG.
New York is No. 1 in the East. The Isles only allow 2.2 GPG this, while averaging 2.9.
Carter Hart and Brian Elliot are struggling for the Flyers. The last thing Philly can do here is try to sit back and wait for the disciplined Islanders to make the first mistake. Instead, the visiting side will look to put the pressure on from start to finish.
In what we expect to a faster-paced affair, look for this total to fly OVER before the final horn sounds.
Good luck, NP
