Are you looking to cash in on a huge NHL money line underdog tonight? We will lead you straight down that path, and includes a money line underdog angle that’s gone 41-19 (68.3%) since 1996.

Flyers and Sharks on NBC Sports Network
The Sharks will host the Flyers tonight at the SAP Center in San Jose, California with the opening face-off slated for 10:05 PM ET. The game will be televised nationally in the United States on the NBC Sports Network. According to the NHL betting odds at 5Dimes, the Sharks are a -180 money line favorite, and the posted total is 5.5. This will be the first meeting of the season between these teams. They split the two meetings a season ago with the road team winning on each occasion, and both of those games easily went over the total.

 

Ice Cold in Philly
The Philadelphia Flyers enter tonight’s game having lost 4 in a row, and 8 of their last 9-games. Tonight will be the first of 4 consecutive road games in 8-days versus Western Conference opponents. That’s certainly not encouraging news for the Flyers considering they’ve gone a dismal 2-9 against the money line on the road this season, and have lost their last 7 away games in a row. Philadelphia has really struggled offensively over the last 7-games. During that time, they’ve scored only 10-goals combined, and were held scoreless on 3 separate occasions. The Flyers penalty killing has been atrocious this season and that’s especially been the case on the road. Home teams have converted on a whopping 37.8% (14-for-37) of their power play opportunities versus the Flyers this season. That will certainly be an area of concern tonight against a Sharks team that converts on a very good 24.1% of their power play chances on the season.

 

A Much Needed Win
The San Jose Sharks are coming off a 6-4 home win over the Anaheim Ducks in their previous game this past Saturday. The win put an end to a 4-game losing streak, and was just their 2nd over the last 9-games. Inexplicably, prior to the 6-goal outburst in the win over Anaheim, the offensively talented Sharks had scored only 14-goals combined in their previous 8-games. On a positive note, it’s not like they haven’t sustained much offensive pressure. The Sharks have amassed 30-shots or more on goal in 8 of their last 10-games. San Jose enters tonight having gone a disappointing 3-6 on home ice this season. They’ve been one of the most overvalued teams in the NHL during the early part of the schedule by losing 10.7 units against the money line in their first 25-games of the year.

 

NHL Betting System
The Flyers are currently +170 on the money line for tonight’s NHL game. I’ve already alluded to the fact they’ve lost 4-games in a row, and the last 2 have come versus opponents within their own division. The Flyers last played on Saturday during a 5-2 road loss at the hands of the New York Rangers. All of the above mentioned facts in this paragraph qualifies for a NHL money line underdog betting system that’s been highly successful, and has passed the test of time with flying colors.

Any money line road underdog of +100 to +200, coming off losses to division opponents in each of their previous 2-games, and is playing with exactly 2-days of rest, has gone 41-19 (68.3%) since 1996.
