NHL Bets 4/25/22: Philadelphia Flyers @ Chicago Blackhawks
Best Bet: OVER 6.5 Goals (-110)
Wager: 2 Units
The Flyers won the first meeting between these teams 4-3 in Philadelphia on March 5, in a wild affair where Philadelphia rallied with a pair of third-period goals. Expect a similar contest Monday night.
The Blackhawks were stymied offensively in the final two games of their California road trip, scoring just single tallies in each of their losses to the Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks. Still, there have been at least seven goals in six of their past eight games, including four straight at United Center.

Martin Jones, who has played like Philadelphia’s No. 1 for much of this season, started that game in goal which means Felix Sandstrom is likely to get the net for the Flyers in Chicago. Sandstrom, who replaced the injured Carter Hart on Philadelphia’s roster after Hart was injured two weeks ago, has a 3.30 goals-against average in three games this season.
These are two of the NHL’s most porous defensive teams. Philadelphia’s allowed the sixth-most goals (287, 3.63 per game), and Chicago has surrendered the seventh-most (284, 3.59 per game).
Don’t overthink it. This game should definitely have at least seven goals. making the Over our NHL bet of the day.
