The Detroit Red Wings are home to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday afternoon, which is good news for Wings bettors. Detroit are home favorites in the Flyers vs Red Wings Saturday NHL odds.

In general, the Red Wings are not a great bet in the NHL lines. Betting against the Wings on the puckline this season is producing a return on investment of 27.85%. That’s second only to the Montreal Canadiens (32.59%) in NHL picks among the league’s 32 teams.

Bring the Wings home, and make them a moneyline favorite and things become mightily different. Detroit is 14-4 as the betting choice this season. That includes an 11-3 slate as the home-ice chalk.

Michigan online sports betting markets peg the home Red Wings as the -162 betting choice over the Flyers in NHL betting lines. Philadelphia is 0-7 straight up in the club’s last seven road games.

Will Injury Report Affect the Saturday NHL Odds?

Flyers defenseman Reijo Ruotsalainen is questionable for Saturday’s game with an undisclosed injury. Forward Cam Atkinson (illness) is also an uncertain starter. Forward Sean Couturier, the 2019-20 Selke Trophy winner, is out for the season after undergoing back surgery.  Philly is 3-11-3 when Couturier doesn’t play this season.

The Red Wings are hoping defenseman Troy Stecher (wrist surgery) will be cleared to play for Saturday. He’s been out since early November. Missing Filip Hronek (COVID-19 protocol) and Nick Leddy (upper-body injury), Detroit will need to recall a defenseman from AHL Grand Rapids if Stecher can’t go.

Red Wings’ Nedeljkovic Leading Rookie Goalies

Detroit goalie Alex Nedeljkovic leads all NHL rookies in wins (14), minutes (1960:50), games (35), and starts (32). He’s 2-1 in his last three decisions. He’s one of three Detroit rookies, along with forward Lucas Raymond and defenseman Moritz Seider, who figure prominently in the Calder Trophy odds.

With Thomas Griess just out of COVID-19 protocol, the Wings are riding Nedeljkovic. He’s started 11 of Detroit’s past 12 games.

Flyers vs Red Wings Projected Starting Goalies

Team Goalie Record SV% GAA
Flyers Carter Hart 9-15-5 .913 2.88
Red Wings Alex Nedeljkovic 14-13-5 .910 2.91

Philly’s Carter Hart is also 2-1 in his last three decisions. However, he’s 2-8-2 in the last 12 games. But he’s allowed more than three goals just twice in that span.

Hart has faced 141 shots over his past four starts, allowing 11 goals.

Flyers vs Red Wings Pick & Prediction

The Flyers are also 2-14 SU in their last six games. On the other hand, the Wings are 1-3-1 SU in their last five home games.

Philadelphia is 10-25-6 on the moneyline as an underdog this season. The Wings have won five of their last seven games against Metropolitan Division opposition. I’ll take the Red Wings moneyline at -155 in the Flyers vs Red Wings Saturday NHL odds at Barstool Sportsbook.

Pick: Detroit Red Wings ML (-162)
