Hockey betting fans have seen the Sabres go from a team that looked like a playoff outsider into a dangerous online hockey betting commodity that has begun to click on all cylinders.
The Buffalo Sabres will host the Philadelphia Flyers in game 6 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series on Sunday at 3 PM ET with a telecast on NBC TV. Sports Gambling will have side and total odds on this matchup so be sure and have your account open and ready for action today.
Philadelphia is the number 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and was the surprise winner of the Conference last year before losing to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Finals.
The Flyers were an outstanding road team this year with a mark of 25-11-3-2 with the hockey betting odds as they went under the total in 21 of 41 away games. Philadelphia is one of the top offensive teams in the NHL as they finished 3rd in the league for goal scoring and 11th for goals against.
The Flyers offensive talent is loaded with several different bona fide weapons that can light the lamp. Right wing Claude Giroux was the overall leading scorer on the Flyers with 25 goals and 51 assists while right wing Daniel Briere had 34 goals and 34 assists.
Center Jeff Carter had 36 goals and 30 assists and center Mike Richards had 23 goals and 43 assists while left wing Scott Hartnell added 24 goals to make for one of the deepest and most dangerous lineups in the NHL.
Buffalo was 21-16-3-1 with the hockey betting line at home this year and ranked 9th in the NHL for goal scoring and 16th for goals against. Left wing Thomas Vanek had 32 goals and 41 assists while right wing Drew Stafford had 31 goals. Ryan Miller had a 2.59 goals against average with 34 wins and 5 shutouts on the season.
Philadelphia has had their share of problems as of late in Buffalo with just 4 payouts in their last 11games there. Just 2 of the last 8 games between these two teams in Buffalo have gone over the hockey betting total.
