Flyers & Kings Win Double at 3.06 (Sky Bet)

Throwing a couple of teams into the mix today and going with a win double on the Philadelphia Flyers and the Los Angeles Kings.

The Philadelphia Flyers have now won their last seven games on home ice and have scored twenty-seven goals in those seven games whilst giving up just eleven goals so really solid form at home and visiting them are the Blue Jackets who have won two of their last four on the road but their record on the road this season is not great with just four wins from sixteen games.

The head-2-head reads in the flyers favour too with them having won the last four and undefeated in five, and when the last met in Philly the hosts went on to a 9-2 success. The flyers are bang in form at home and have held the upperhand in recent years so for me another home success looks on the cards.

The Kings have been in decent form of late which sees them sitting third in the Eastern Conference, click just one defeat in their last eight games, have won their last three at home and their last two they have had shutouts with a couple of 3-0 victories. The visiting Sharks won in St Louis when last on the road which brought to an end a four match losing sequence and overall they have won just twice in their last seven games.

The head-2-head record points to the Kings who when on home ice against the Sharks are unbeaten in sixty minutes in their last eleven matches and that includes eight victories for the home side and to cut it down further the Kings have won eight of the last ten so for me they can take that record to nine from eleven.

A couple of in form sides here this evening who hold solid head-2-head records against there opponents who I will be playing in a double for which Sky Bet offer the best odds of 3.06.

Here are my match-up numbers:

About Author

I have been in the betting game for getting on 10 years now, I was a late comer in the betting scene, never really showed much interest in the first 20 years of my life but then I came across a betting website and that all changed. I have learnt a vast amount over the last 5 years, I used to believe I could pick the winner in every race before I realised I could not and began selective betting which is the only way forward. I mainly stick with the horses but do occasionally stray off to bet on the footie or speedway. I am now 35 years old, born and bred in Ipswich and still here and forever a Tractorboy, work part time for a Cash & Carry and have a dog named Dave! That’s about it from me.

  1. The Kings went on to a 4-1 success over the Sharks and what a game the Flyers was!

    3-0 down after to periods and then in the third period they clawed is back to 3-2 before going 4-2 down. With 5 minutes remaining they were still 4-2 down but then 3 goals in 3 minutes secured a 5-4 victory which means a winning double!
