Bet on Hockey: Philadelphia Flyers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Bet on hockey Thursday with a worst against first matchup between Philadelphia and Tampa Bay in Eastern Conference hockey bet action.

Bet on hockey handicappers may want to “fly” with Philly but the hockey bet odds will carry a steep price to do so.  A good example of the bet on hockey value issue comes with Philadelphia’s overall record so far this season.

The Flyers were a strong 22-10-4-5 straight up which was good for first place in the Atlantic division but they were just 22-19 against the hockey gambling odds.  Philadelphia is often a large hockey bet favorite as they will be in this one which means that a wagering loss on the Flyers is expensive and takes many games to make up for.

Philadelphia’s major bet on hockey asset has been there offense which was ranked 5th overall in the league.  The Flyers defense was not nearly as strong as it ranked just 20th on the hockey bet stat charts.  Philadelphia has been up and down the past month with no real streak pattern.

They have been something of a bet on hockey under team on the road, however, as they posted just 7 overs in 21 away games this season.  Jeff Carter has been a significant bet on hockey asset for the Flyers as he led the team in goals with 27 and points with 44.  Mike Richards led in assists with 28.

Goaltenders Martin Biron and Antero Niittymaki have good numbers but they face a lot of shots.  It has been a wild and strange bet on hockey season with the Tampa Bay Lightning.  Tampa Bay hired ESPN analyst Barry Melrose as coach last summer only to fire him in the first month of the bet on hockey season.

The Lightning haven’t done any better since they sent Melrose back to ESPN as they had an overall bet on hockey record of 12-19-3-7 straight up and a near break even 20-21 against the hockey gambling odds.

Tampa Bay has been such an unappealing bet on hockey team that they often get extra added value in order to attract bet on hockey action their way, which means big payoffs when the Lightning win.
