- Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals host the struggling Philadelphia Flyers at home on Wednesday, November 23rd, 2022
- Washington are heavy favorites in the Flyers vs Capitals odds
- Read below our best NHL betting pick for this Wednesday night matchup
On Wednesday night, we have a matchup between two teams who have been inconsistent at best as of late. The Washington Capitals opened the season with seven wins in their first 20 games, while the Flyers have lost seven straight. Puck drop is set for 7:30 PM EST on November 23rd, 2022 at Capital One Arena. On Maryland online sports betting launch day, Washington are pegged as home favorites in the Flyers vs Capitals odds.
The Washington Capitals are getting healthier each day, and are looking to have a returning TJ Oshie after just getting John Carlson from his recent absence. These pickups should help this struggling Caps team find some form.
Can Alexander Ovechkin, John Carlson, and TJ Oshie lead their team back into the playoff hunt against a struggling Flyers team? Let’s take a look at the Capitals vs Flyers odds for this Wednesday night NHL matchup.

Philadelphia Flyers Betting Outlook
The Philadelphia Flyers are a long way from their hot start to the NHL season. Losers of eight of their last 10 matches, the Flyers are giving up 3.9 goals per game and only score 2.2 in their last 10. The Flyers are giving up almost 35 shots on goal per game on the road this year and have become a prime target for opposition players in the past few weeks.
Owen Tippett is one player to look out for on the Flyers roster. The young forward has been consistently hitting his shots on goal prop, and quite honestly is the only Flyer I would think about targeting. With a line that will probably be set at 2.5 shots on goal in the Flyers vs Capitals odds, Tippett has hit in eight of his last 10 games and five of his last six away from home.
Washington Capitals Betting Outlook
The Washington Capitals are coming into this matchup in winners of two of their last 10 games, just like the Philadelphia Flyers. They are allowing 3.7 goals per game and scoring only 2.5 goals per game in their last 10 games. Eerily similar numbers to the Philadelphia Flyers who are seen as bottom dwellers in the Eastern Conference. The Washington Capitals are giving up 30 shots on goal per game in their last 10 and shooting 31.9 shots per game in that same time frame.
John Carlson has been, by far, the most consistent member of the Washington Capitals roster. We bet on him last week, and he is a fantastic target once again. Carlson has hit over 2.5 shots on goal in 10 of his last 11 games and has been comfortably hitting since his injury.
What makes this even more mouth watering is the Flyers inability to stop defensemen against them. The Flyers rank seventh worst in the NHL vs defensemen in terms of shots, making Carlson a fantastic target for the night in the Flyers vs Capitals odds.
Flyers vs Capitals Prediction and Best Bets
John Carlson is a must bet for tonight. The defensemen has become a must bet in the past weeks, and the soft target vs Philly makes him a great bet for tonight.
I would love to target Carlson for an alt line, but not sure if that will be offered, stay tuned for an update on Flyers vs Capitals odds for shot props when they become available shortly. If Carlson does get an alt line for higher shots on goal, I will absolutely be targeting a ladder with his recent volume and shots.
Best Bet: John Carlson Over 3.5 SOG (+120) – Wagering .5u here
