How To Bet On Senators Flyers – Philly Tries to Get Back on Track

Ottawa Senators @ Philadelphia Flyers – Saturday March 2, 2013 12:00PM EST

The betting world is still waiting for the Philadelphia Flyers to solve its goaltending problem and make a serious run at the Stanley Cup. Just three years ago, it seemed like Philly had all of the pieces in place to be a contender, but goaltending was a little weak. Rather than wait, the Flyers immediately dumped the goaltending it had and brought in former Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov. But the eccentric Bryzgalov proved to me more of a continuation of the Flyers’ problems than any kind of real answer.

The sports betting fans in Ottawa, on the other hand, are having no problems accepting the team’s goaltender, Craig Anderson. Anderson is stellar in the nets for Ottawa, but the Senators are still having a slight problem scoring goals when it needs them. But Ottawa still has more than enough fire power to pin back the Philadelphia Flyers and come out of Philly with a win. The Senators need every point it can get in a competitive Northeast Division. A win on the road in Philadelphia would do wonders for the Senators’ playoff hopes and confidence.

Why the Flyers Will Win

The Flyers is 4-8-0 away from home and that record does not seem to be improving. The sportsbook experts see that the Flyers give up a lot of goals on the road and that is never a formula for winning road games. Philadelphia has tried several other options in net in the last two years, but the team just cannot find a reliable netminder. As long as the Flyers need to rely on Bryzgalov for its goaltending, the prospects for Philly winning tough road games are slim. But if Philadelphia can bust out its physical style in this game, then that could make a difference.

Ottawa Senators

The Ottawa Senators has only lost one game in regulation at home, but the team is 3-5-0 on the road. The team is extremely physical, efficient and blessed with great goaltending. The key to the Senators is that it will pound the other team into submission. When Ottawa is on the road, it tends to crash the opposing net more often and that kind of activity is sure to upset Bryzgalov and throw him off his game. The Senators is all about disruption and frustration for the opponent. In this game, Ottawa will find it easy to disrupt and frustrate the Flyers.

The Bottom Line

The Philadelphia Flyers is extremely weak on defense and in goal. That is not a good combination for a team that is getting ready to go into Ottawa and play the Senators. This will be a physical game from the opening face-off and it will stay that way all afternoon. By the time it is over, the Flyers will have lost another home game.

Pick: Ottawa Senators
