The Philadelphia Flyers are coming off a strong week, but they’ve been horrible on the road dating back to last season. The Buffalo Sabres have been one of the hotter teams in the league over the last two weeks, and their offense should give the Flyers a world of trouble. Both teams are hot, but the Sabres are in a better spot at home. Give me the home team and the PL for max betting value.
