PA Insider - Rickenbach NHL Game #29 Sunday 7* OVER the total in Detroit Red Wings vs Philadelphia Flyers @ 6:05 ET - The fact that 5.5 is available on this game is a great value but the juice on the over is in the 135 to 140 range so that is why I am reducing the rating on this play to a 7* rating. These teams just met yesterday and the Red Wings showed their resiliency in rallying from a 5-1 deficit to force overtime. Detroit skated very well and they saw how playing uptempo benefited them against the Flyers. Couple that with the fact that both teams have goalie "situations" here and you have a great spot for an over. With it being a back to back the netminder aspect becomes a key. The Flyers recently traded Anthony Stolarz for Cam Talbot and the Oilers acquisition is not yet ready to go. That means Philly either has to play Carter Hart in a back to back spot here or go with Mike McKenna. Hart struggled yesterday and journeyman McKenna has struggled overall this season. As for the Red Wings, Jimmy Howard got pulled yesterday and Jonathan Bernier has a history of inconsistency and his last 6 starts featured one great one but the other 5 saw Detroit allow an average of 4.4 goals per game. Only 9 of Philadelphia's last 25 Sunday games (36%) have resulted in an under. 7* OVER the total in Detroit
