The St. Louis Blues are a hit or miss team for the most part, and they can go through these weird stretches. However, the Philadelphia Flyers continue to slump, and playing on the end of a back to back doesn’t help matters. The Flyers also don’t do a great job of handling business at home. I can’t back the Flyers with confidence. Give me the Blues and the PL for max betting value.
