Scott's NHL 3-Game Package
(NHL) Pittsburgh vs. Philadelphia, 05/03/2021 7:00 PM, Score: 2 - 7
Money Line: 150.00 Philadelphia (Home)
Result: Win
8* PHILADELPHIA +150 - The Flyers season is now officially over as they have been eliminated from the playoff race. However, guess which long-time rival just took over first place in the division? Of course it is the in-state rival Penguins and Philadelphia always tends to be up for their rivals no matter the circumstances. In other words, look for a very strong effort from the Flyers here. They have won 5 of last 8 meetings between these teams and that includes 3 in a row when they are the host. That trend plays well to the home dog value here because Pittsburgh has been fantastic at home this season but only mediocre on the road. The odds makers knew the entire situation before posting this line and yet the markets are pounding the Penguins like it is "free money" in this one. In this rivalry, anything can happen and this situation is ideal with Flyers off some disappointing losses and the Penguins off huge wins over the Capitals that allowed them to leapfrog them for first place. 8* PHILADELPHIA +150
