Why Boston Bruins are a good bet -141?
Boston has gone 1-2 in their last 3. The first loss was to Washington, though, while they dropped a game to rival Montreal in overtime in their last. Look whom the Bruins beat? They took down mighty Toronto on the road in the victory.
Before going 1-2, the Bruins had dominated with 5 straight wins. They should have no trouble marching into Philadelphia and beating a downtrodden Flyers team. Boston’s a real contender for the Stanley Cup. They’ll show it on Wednesday night.

Why Philadelphia Flyers are a good bet +120?
Philly had lost 8 in a row. But, they’ve bounced back in their last 3, going 2-1. On January 10, they beat the Dallas Stars 2-1. Then, after a 2-3 loss to New Jersey on the road, the Flyers beat Minnesota 7-4 at home.
The Flyers have gotten their skates underneath them again. They can hang with Boston. If they’re within a goal in the last 10 minutes, they’ll have a shot to pull off the upset.

Bruins at Flyers Final NHL Betting Analysis
Boston has definitely made it’s case for being one of the top teams in NHL. They’re currently only a couple of games behind Toronto in the Atlantic. Both Boston and Toronto are behind he best team in NHL, the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Philadelphia hasn’t been good for a while. They have had some success in their last few games, but that was against inferior opponents. It’s difficult to see the Flyers sticking with Boston in this. A puck line wager might be called for. If the odds stay where they are on the moneyline, though, Boston’s worth backing because they should be favored by more than that.
