The New York Rangers (47-21-6) remain out east to face the Philadelphia Flyers (23-39-11) Wednesday at Wells Fargo Center. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET (TNT). Below, we look at the Rangers vs. Flyers odds and lines, and make our expert NHL picks, predictions and bets.

The Rangers had a three-game win streak snapped with a 4-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday. LW Chris Kreider has 4 goals and 2 assists in his last four games to lead the offense.

The Flyers never got off the runway Tuesday in a 9-2 loss at the Washington Capitals. Philly has three wins in its last 10 games, but one of them came in a shootout against these Rangers.

Rangers at Flyers projected goalies

Alexandar Georgiev (12-9-2, 3.03 GAA, .894 SV%, 1 SO) vs. Martin Jones (10-15-3, 3.49 GAA, .899 SV%)

Georgiev was great against the New Jersey Devils April 5, stopping 20 of 21 shots in a 3-1 victory in his lone April start. He was 4-1-0 with a 3.30 GAA and .877 SV% in March and was fantastic against the Flyers last year with a 3-0 record, a 0.97 GAA and a .960 SV%.

Jones is still likely to draw the start today after he was pounded for 6 goals on 27 shots Tuesday because G Carter Hart is questionable with a lower-body injury. Jones has allowed 11 goals in his last two appearances and has allowed least 4 goals in four of his last six games. He stopped 43 of 46 shots in a 4-3 shootout win against the Rangers 10 days ago.

Money line

The Rangers haven’t been dependable enough to wager twice your potential return. PASS.

Against the spread

The Rangers are 21-17 against the puck line on the road this season, and they have a clear advantage in net. New York is also likely steaming from the shootout loss to these Flyers April 3. The Rangers’ last three wins have been by 2 or more goals, and this one shouldn’t be close.

Take the RANGERS -1.5 (+130).

Over/Under

The Rangers have struck for 5 goals in four of their last 10 games. With Philly’s backup goalie likely being thrown into the fire after last night’s thumping, they could do it again.

The Over is 4-0 for the Flyers in their last four outings after losing by 3 or more goals the previous game. The Rangers smell blood as the Over is 3-0-1 in the last four when their opponent scores 2 goals or fewer in their last outing.

LEAN OVER 6.5 (+105).
