The over is 4-0 in Coyotes last 4 overall. The over is 5-2 in Flyers last 7 overall. The favorite is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Philadelphia and 13-3 in the last 16 meetings.

The Arizona Coyotes continue to pile up the losses, struggle defensively, and they’ve been fade material on the road the last couple of seasons. The Philadelphia Flyers have bounced back from the dead this week and the confidence has to be picking up. I’ll assume the Flyers can build on their momentum and get a rare feel good home victory. I’ll lay the reasonable juice.
