Hurricanes at Flyers projected goalies

Frederik Andersen (26-7-2, 2.10 GAA, .927 SV%, 2 SO) vs. Carter Hart (9-16-6, 2.96 GAA, .910 SV%, 1 SO)

Anderson stopped 28 of the 31 shots he faced in Friday’s victory against the Nashville Predators. He was rested Sunday, as Antti Raanta picked up the win to kick off the Keystone State back-to-back.

Hart hasn’t won in the past three starts, going 0-2-1 while allowing three or more goals in each contest. He was in between the pipes Nov. 12 for the team’s 2-1 road victory against the Hurricanes in the first meeting of the season.

Hurricanes at Flyers odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Hurricanes 4, Flyers 2

Money line

The Hurricanes (-205) will cost you over two times your potential return, and that’s a little on the steep side. Carolina is playing the second end of a back-to-back. The Hurricanes are 1-4 in the past five when playing on no rest. While the Flyers are a dismal 3-23 in the previous 26 against Eastern Conference foes, the risk is still too great for very little reward.

PASS.

Against the spread

The HURRICANES -1.5 (+122) at plus-money is a lot better of a play, even in the second end of a back-to-back set. Carolina is 12-4 in the past 16 as a road favorite, and 20-9 in the past 29 games against teams with a losing record. Don’t get carried away, though, as just two of the previous seven wins for the Hurricanes have been by two more goals.

Over/Under

UNDER 6.5 (-120) is the lean here. Yes, the Over is 8-3-1 in the past 12 meetings in Philadelphia, and 13-6 in the past 19 in this series, the Under has hit in five of the past seven for Carolina against losing teams. In addition, the Under has hit in five straight in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 (four games in six days) situation.
