Both teams have sunk to the bottom of their division, and if it wasn't for the Blue Jackets, they would be at the very bottom. However, Columbus has padded their fall for now.
Philadelphia started the year hot, winning 8 of their first 12, but they currently find themselves on a seven-game losing streak. It's a stark contrast to how their season kicked off, but they are in trouble if they are not able to turn things around quickly.
Washington is in a similar boat, as they have lost eight of their last ten. They did win nine of their first ten games, but have hit a brick wall. Something will give tonight as these unstoppable losing forces meet.

Flyers vs Capitals Best Bets
Five or more goals have been scored in nine of Philadelphia's last ten games, and six goals have been scored in six of their last eight games.
Six goals have been scored in five of Washington's last seven games.
Both teams allow a crazy amount of goals, and one, if not both of these teams should take advantage of the poor defense they are facing.
Six is a perfectly placed line for bettors, as they are facing a push at worst. Jump on the over, and enjoy an entertaining game.
Over 6 Goals (-110)
Flyers vs Capitals Prediction
This game could easily go either way. Even if both teams were not on such horrendous losing streaks, they are evenly matched, and they are .500 against each other in their last six meetings.
It is worth noting, that the last time they played -- April 12th -- the Capitals won 9 - 2. However, that is the only time in their previous six, that the winning margin was more than two goals.
Given how these teams are playing, overtime is a high probability. For that reason, bettors should take Philly with the points. While Philadelphia could easily win, by taking the points bettors have an automatic win if the game goes to overtime.
