Flyers postseason 2020 odds and betting results

Before the NHL season was frozen due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Philadelphia Flyers were one of the league’s hottest teams. They return to play after four months, hoping to advance past the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and end a 43-season Stanley Cup drought.

The Flyers finished the abbreviated season 41-21-7. It put them among the top four teams in the Eastern Conference, so they will play a three-game round robin for seeding in the first round.

NHL bettors like the Flyers’ chances of winning the Eastern Conference and perhaps hoisting the Stanley Cup. They are among the most-wagered teams.

For the 2020 postseason, Play Pennsylvania will regularly post and update the Philadelphia Flyers’ odds at PA sports betting apps and update how they fared each game. For more on hockey wagering, see our NHL betting guide.

Flyers face Lightning for top seed in Eastern Conference

Despite a long layoff, the Flyers have looked sharp and, at times, dominant in their return. They end round-robin play against the Tampa Bay Lightning, who finished the regular season with the second-most points in the Eastern Conference. The Lightning beat the Flyers twice in regulation this season, as the Flyers only scored 3 goals combined in their meetings.

When the Flyers face off against the Lightning on Saturday, the Eastern Conference’s No. 1 seed in the first round of the playoffs is on the line. The loser will take the No. 2 seed.

The so-far-soaring Flyers enter the weekend as the most-bet NHL team so far, accounting for 17% of all NHL wagers at BetRivers online sportsbook.
