As one of the worst road teams in the NHL, tonight’s Flyers vs Predators game will present a massive uphill battle for Philadelphia in the music city. The Flyers are in the midst of a five-game road trip that has been chalked full of scoring by their opponents, totaling 14 goals allowed in their last three games. They now face a Predators team who is well-rested and hungry for a win after back-to-back embarrassing losses, each by five goals at the hands of the Kings and Golden Knights.
Let’s take a look at the betting odds, trends and picks for the game and give our Flyers vs Predators prediction.
Flyers vs Predators NHL Betting Preview and Prediction
NHL Regular Season
Philadelphia Flyers (21-33-11, 8-18-5 Away) vs. Nashville Predators (37-24-4, 19-11-0 Home)
Date: Sunday, March 27, 2022
Time: 6:00 p.m. EST
Venue: Bridgestone Arena – Nashville, TN
This Flyers vs Predators matchup has the potential to be thrilling if you are a fan of goals. The Predators certainly have the ability to score, putting the puck in the net nearly at a top-10 clip in the NHL this season. After being stifled in their last two games, the perfect remedy rolls into town in the form of Flyers goaltender Carter Hart.
The 23-year-old Hart has struggled mightily in the last two seasons after impressing fans and players alike on his way to Vezina discussion during the Flyers deep playoff run in 2019-20. Since then, the Flyers have morphed into an unrecognizable team on both offense and defense, ranking bottom-five in goals allowed and second-last in goals scored.
The Flyers’ struggles away from Philadelphia are unlikely to change tonight, as they face a ruckus crowd in Nashville, where the Predators have won 63% of their games and have not yet been to overtime. Despite the Flyers’ inability to score, the over might be in play here at an even six. The safer route, however, may be banking on the Predators to kick it back into gear offensively and taking the over on their team total.

Flyers vs Predators Prediction
There will be goals scored in this Flyers vs Predators game. The question becomes how many will the Flyers be able to muster up? We are comfortable taking the Predators team total, so that means you need at least two out of Philadelphia for a push.
Two goals are far from a certainty when it comes to this Flyer squad, especially if Saros gives even an average performance. With the Predators moneyline being so heavy, you have to find a way to create value. Nashville has not been to OT on home ice yet this season, and it is doubtful these Flyers will be the first team to force it. Comfortably lay the -150 juice on the Predators to win this game in regulation.
Our NHL betting Flyers vs Predators prediction tonight will be Predators in regulation at BetUS.
For what it’s worth, the numberFire gives the Predators a 72.6% chance to win.
