John Tortorella brings a team that’s heavily injured in terms of significant players and one that’s not been good in execution of the process so far. The Flyers sit 7-7-4 to Calgary’s 8-7-2 though so one might think this should be an equal game – it should not be. Calgary should be able to find a way to take this one. They have the superior offensive metrics, superior defensive metrics, and the more experienced/talented personnel up front.

Primary bet – CGY Flames to win & Elias Lindholm to score 1+ points (+110)

I’m adamant the Flames should win – if they find a way to lose that’ll be more telling than pretty much every other game. I don’t think Philly will ever just roll over, but they are clearly fighting through tons of injuries. Lindholm himself has been on quite the tear with new linemate Adam Ruzicka – the metrics have been sustainable so we go with that.

Secondary Bet – Tyler Toffoli to get 1+ points (-134)

He gets the top power play time, gets the skilled linemates and to this point he’s had great production too. Primary bet involves two things happening and if the Lindholm point occurs there is a high likelihood Toffoli is there with him. The assist and goal lines play at better odds, but we’re trying to cast a wider net here

Tertiary Bet – CGY Flames to get a power play goal (-150)

The Flyers play a sit back and defend game – not by the coaches doing we just have to remember they are only 20 games into Torts tenure. During his time in Columbus the team never found a strong transition game and as such spent a lot of time in their own zone. Calgary – while still nowhere near the level they played as a squad last year – should be able to skate circles in the offensive zone. This leads to lots of penalties, power plays, and voila.
As usual, bet safe and enjoy the game!
