The Flyers have alternated wins and losses over their past eight games, most recently a 5-2 defeat in Dallas – and that win-one, lose-one pattern has left them treading water in the Metropolitan Division. They’re slight underdogs against a Flames team that has been red-hot on the road so far.

Flames vs. Flyers NHL Betting Odds

This one opened as a toss-up, but the Flames have emerged as the favourites having earned points in 12 of their first 15 games. That said, they’re just 2-5 SU in their last seven and scored just nine goals in those five losses (compared with 10 goals in the two victories). The Flyers have won nine of their previous 12 games vs. Western Conference opponents, but still have the support of just 46 percent of the Sports Interaction betting pool.

Tuesday’s total is locked in a 5.5, with more than 70 percent of the public siding with the Under. Both teams have been stronger Under plays this season, with the Flames at 7-8 O/U and the Flyers at 5-8. Philadelphia also comes into this one on a 7-1 Under run over its past eight games, with six of those contests producing four or fewer goals. The Flames, meanwhile, have averaged just 4.5 total goals in their previous four outings.

The Flames are no longer the offensive juggernaut they were at the start of the season – but things might be looking up after they dominated throughout in a 4-0 triumph over the Ottawa Senators last time out. And with the defence and goaltending still among the best in the league (the Flames are allowing the second-fewest goals per game), Calgary is well-positioned to get back to .500 in the fourth game of its seven-game East road trip.

Philadelphia Flyers

Have we seen the best of James van Riemsdyk? The two-time 30-goal scorer has seen his goal total dip in each of his first three full seasons in Philadelphia, and is struggling mightily with just two goals over his first 13 games of 2021-22 (though he did score last time out). The Flyers would love to see him get going, as they average just 2.77 goals per game and rank tied for 22nd overall in power-play success rate at 17.1 percent.
