Predictions and bets: Capitals @ Flyers


August 6, 2020 8:57 PM

The Flyers got off to a flying start, beating the Bruins 4-1 upon their return to action on Sunday.

This afternoon they come up against the reigning Stanley Cup champions in the Washington Capitals, but we aren’t predicting any trouble for the Flyers today.

Dimers' Suggested Plays

Lock: Over 6 (-105*)
Puck Line: Flyers +1.5 (-261*)
Moneyline: Flyers win (-110*)


With both teams shaking off the rust after the COVID-19 shutdown, our model is tipping a high scoring affair here with over 6 goals our best bet of the game.

Puck Line

As reigning champs, it’s always going to be a tough assignment to come out against the Capitals. We think this will be a tight battle but ultimately the Flyers should have enough quality to cover the line.


It’s hard to ignore Philadelphia’s impressive first-up start against Boston on Sunday. The odds suggest this is the flip of a coin, but we believe the Flyers will continue their winning ways.

Dimers' take-out

We are feeling great about the Flyers’ chances today. To really cash in, a same game parlay of the over and Flyers +1.5 is our play here.
