(NHL) Philadelphia vs. Tampa Bay, 11/23/2021 7:00 PM, Score: 0 - 4
Point Spread: 1.50 | -170.00 Philadelphia (Away)
Result: Loss
I'm playing PHILADELPHIA on the puck-line (+1.5 goals) With the champs favored on the moneyline, we're able to get an extra +1.5 goals with the visiting Flyers. I actually don't think we'll need them, as like Philadelphia's chances of the outright win. That said, the extra +1.5 goals could prove invaluable. A 1-goal Tampa win is absolutely a possibility. Consider that these teams met less than a week ago, at Philadelphia. That game was tied after regulation. Tampa won 4-3 in a shootout. Including that result, five of the Flyers' last eight games have been decided by a single goal. Also, five of the past eight meetings between these teams were decided by a single goal. Additionally, off a 5-4 (S/O) win over the Wild, Tampa has now seen six of its past nine games decided by a single goal. Five of those games were tied after regulation. Already without Kucherov, Tampa is now also without Point. The Lightning still have a lot but those are a couple of key players. Note that Point scored Tampa's first goal (and in the S/O) in last week's game. Expect the revenge-minded Flyers to bounce back with AT LEAST the "puck-line cover."
