Take Flyers vs Blackhawks in NHL Bet Predictions

The Philadelphia Flyers and Chicago Blackhawks will meet for the first time this season when the two clash on Tuesday. The two teams are trending in different directions. The Blackhawks are last in the Central Division and building toward the future while Philly is hoping to keep its spot in third place in the Metropolitan Division and therefore the playoffs as well. Chicago has home-ice advantage, but that hasn’t done much for it this season, and the best hockey bet for Feb. 21 is to back the away team yet again.

Flyers vs Blackhawks Moneyline Pick: Flyers (-200)

Although the Flyers have dropped their last two games, they should be able to pick up a win here against Chicago, which has lost nine of its last 10.

The Blackhawks’ offense hasn’t been strong this season, ranking dead last in the NHL. They are averaging 2.09 goals a game and 2.4 in their last five and they’re likely going to struggle again against Philadelphia. The Flyers have the 11th-ranked defense in the league, giving up 2.91 goals a game, and in their last three road games, they have allowed 2.67 goals a game.

Philadelphia’s offense has also started to pick up recently, scoring 3.6 goals a game in its last five. With Chicago allowing four or more goals in four of its last five games, the Flyers have a chance to continue that offensive success.

With Philly also finding plenty of success on the road and over half of its wins coming away from home, it’s a strong NHL bet to grab a win on Wednesday.

 

Flyers vs Blackhawks Player Prop Pick: Travis Konecny At Least Two Points (-200)

Konecny leads the Flyers in points, goals and assists this season, and he has stepped up even more in February. After scoring 11 points through all of January, Konecny has already tied that point total midway through February with four goals and seven assists.

Konecny has had at least two points in four of his last five games and has scored 30 total in 28 away games this season. With the Blackhawks’ defense struggling lately, the Flyers are likely to light the lamp a few more times on the road, with Konecny expected to be involved in that yet again.
