Philadelphia Flyers vs Minnesota Wild

Where: Xcel Energy Center, Saint Paul, MN

When: Saturday, December 14, 7:00 PM. ET.

The Minnesota Wild will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night.

Flyers Going For Seventh Win In Nine Games

The Flyers are playing well at the moment, winning six of their last eight games. They will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Colorado and pick up their seventh win in their last nine games when they play the Wild on Saturday.

Philadelphia has played well offensively, averaging 3.03 goals per game. The team has played better in its last six games, averaging 3.66 goals per game. They were held to one goal by the Avalanche and will need to play better if they want to pick up their third consecutive win over the Wild.

Travis Konecny has been the best player on the ice for the Flyers. The 22-year old leads the team with 11 goals, 17 assists, and 28 points. He missed the game against the Avalanche because of a concussion and is likely going to miss this game.

The Flyers have also played well defensively, holding opponents to 2.68 goals per game. They gave up three goals against Colorado and will need to play better to beat the Wild on Saturday.

Wild Going For Second Win In Three Games

The Wild were able to snap their two-game losing streak with a win over the Edmonton Oilers in their last game and will try to keep the momentum going with a win over the Flyers, which will give them their second win in a row and snap their two-game losing streak to the Flyers.

Minnesota has played well offensively, averaging 3.03 goals per game. Like the Flyers, they are averaging 3.66 goals per game in their last three games. They scored six goals against the Oilers in their last game and will need another big offensive game to get past the Flyers.

Jason Zucker leads the Wild with 12 goals and 236 points. He has three goals and three assists in their last five games.

The Wild haven’t played as well defensively, giving up 3.28 goals per game. They are giving up 3.66 goals per game in their last six games and will need to play significantly better if they want to beat the Flyers on Saturday.

Rating:

The Flyers are playing well at the moment, thanks to one of the best defenses in the league, which is holding opponents to 2.68 points per game. They have also played well on special teams, killing 85.1 percent of their penalties, while the Wild are killing 77.7 percent of their penalties. The Wild are also giving up 3.28 goals per game and will have trouble slowing down the Flyers, who are averaging 3.036 goals per game and 3.66 goals per game in their last three games. With the Flyers winning seven of the last 10 meetings between the two teams, Philadelphia makes the most betting sense here.

Prediction: Philadelphia Flyers +119

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Flyers are playing well offensively at the moment and are averaging 3.66 goals per game in their last six games. The Wild are also averaging 3.66 goals per game in their last six games, but they will struggle to score against the Flyers, who are holding opponents to 2.3 goals per game in their last six games. However, the Flyers and Wild will go over the total because the Wild haven’t played very well on the defensive end in their last six games, giving up 3.66 goals per game. With the Flyers scoring 12 goals against the Wild in their last two meetings, expect them to score over four points in this game and go over the total. The over is 4-2 in Philadelphia's last 6 games and 4-2 in Minnesota's last 6 games against an opponent in the Metropolitan division.

Prediction: Over
