The FLYERS (+100) offer nice value at even-money following the Game 2 win. They’re -115 favorites to win the series with the Isles at -106 to advance to the Eastern Conference Final.
The Islanders’ Game 1 win was the more impressive of the two in the series, but the Flyers showed their proper potential with three goals in the first 15:09 of Game 2. Varlamov will certainly bounce back, but expect the Philly offense to control puck possession and make an easier night for Hart.
There’s good value in the alternate line of FLYERS -1.5 (+280). Should Philly win by 2 or more goals, a $10 bet would return a profit of $28.
They needed overtime to win Game 2 after Islanders C Jean-Gabriel Pageau capped the regulation comeback with the game-tying goal with just 2:09 remaining on the clock. Don’t expect them to let up Saturday.
Play the UNDER 5 (-106) in a tighter-scoring game following the two off days. Game 3 was supposed to be played Thursday as the second half of a back-to-back, and the goalies will have benefited from the rest.
