This ice hockey betting tip comes from the NHL and the match between Philadelphia Flyers (29-14-6) and Nashville Predators (31-16-4).
The Nashville Predators are the form team in the NHL right now with 10 wins in their last 11 matches including 5 on the bounce.
They are coming off a great month in January in which they recorded a club record 11 wins.
Goaltender Pekka Rinne has been in sensational form and has won his last 10 matches in a row.
The Predators have been equally impressive on the road with 3 consecutive wins and 6 victories in their 7 away from home.
They have been capitalising well on their power play opportunities scoring in 5 of their 13 with the man advantage.
Part of their success has been down to the team effort. The Predators have 9 players with 10 goals or more this season.
One of those players is Mike Fisher who has been in excellent form with 5 goals in his last 3 matches.
The Flyers cannot seem to get any momentum right now and have lost 10 of their last 19 matches. That's poor for a big side like Philadelphia.
They lost 3 of their last 5 in January including a shootout defeat to the struggling Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.
They simply aren't scoring enough goals with just 13 in these 5 matches. 7 of their last 11 goals have come on the Power Play and that will worry the Flyers.
Too many of their top name stars are not performing right now. Claude Giroux is without a goal in his last 12 games whilst Jaromir Jagr has failed to find the net in his last 9 appearances.
The form of goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov is also a big worry. He has lost 8 of his last 12 matches with a GAA of 3.24.
The Flyers are looking to avoid a 4th straight home defeat, but given the way the Predators are playing I am not sure they will.
The last time these two teams met, just over 2 weeks ago, the Predators won 4-2 in Nashville.
