It’s taken until after the all-star break, but it’s finally here: the first Stadium Series game of the NHL season. We have one in back-to-back days, and it begins with today’s Metropolitan Division rivalry between the Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils. It’s one that could prove to be a decider come playoff time, making it an even more exciting contest. To get you set for it, we have provided our best Flyers vs. Devils Same Game Parlay.

Also sure to check out all of our NHL predictions for today’s action!\

Flyers vs. Devils Same Game Parlay (11/17)

Devils ML (-150)

Over 6.5 goals (+105)

Jack Hughes anytime goal scorer (+115)

Parlay odds +525

New Jersey Devils ML (-150) over Philadelphia Flyers

Today’s outdoor matchup will certainly be close for both teams, but the Devils are listed as the home team for a reason, as they will be at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ — the home of the New York Jets and Giants in the NFL. It also makes sense as to why the Devils are the clear favorites. They may be behind Philly in the Metro Division standings, but that’s due to a slow start with Jack Hughes injured, and perhaps more importantly the Flyers’ most significant piece is missing. 

That would be goaltender Carter Hart, and with Hughes healthy New Jersey has the firepower to take advantage. It was a close 4-3 Devils win when these teams first met this season, which is why we’re playing it a bit safer instead of taking the puck line. Regardless, there are already talks of the Flyers being sellers at the trade deadline, so this playoff position may not last much longer. New Jersey also has the depth advantage.

Over 6.5 goals (+105)

With Philly without Hart between the pipes, you may have seen our second leg coming. The Flyers goaltending has a major drop-off with Samuel Ersson in net, and the Devils are providing a reason for even more goals. Starting goaltender Vitek Vanecek is also banged up, which has Nico Daws getting the start. 

Admittedly, he had a SportsCenter top-10 worthy save against the Los Angeles Kings the other night, but he is still a backup for a reason. As already mentioned, 7 goals were scored when these teams first met this season — and that was with Hart in action for Philly. Now with both teams sporting backup netminders, we like the over.

Jack Hughes anytime goalscorer (+115)

Given our foreshadowing, this final leg is likely one that you may have seen coming. Jack Hughes is healthy and looking as great as ever. Despite not scoring in New Jersey’s most recent game, he had 6 shots on goal, with many being high-chance opportunities. Now he gets to face a backup goaltender in a primetime game with the nation’s eyes on him. 

Despite being just 21 years old last season, he recorded 99 points; we would bet that he has a couple of Hart Trophies in his near future. We won’t get ahead of ourselves, but just a goal will do tonight. After all, he has scored in 2 of his last 3 games against Philly and has also done so in 2 of his last 3 games overall. Look for Jesper Bratt and Tyler Toffoli to link up with Hughes en route to a high-scoring Devils win.
