Philadelphia Flyers 2021-2022 Betting Preview: Will Offseason Upgrades Be Enough To Improve Odds?

Posted By Katie Kohler on September 23, 2021 - Last Updated on October 13, 2021

The Philadelphia Flyers disappointed fans, GM Chuck Fletcher, and hockey bettors during their 2021 season. They entered the season with the fifth-best odds to win the Stanley Cup (+1500) and were favored to make the playoffs (-250). They finished well below their preseason over/under point total (67.5) with 58 points and failed to make the playoffs.

Fletcher made big changes in the offseason adding experience to the blue line and more veteran leadership.

For the 2021-2022, Pennsylvania online sportsbooks have team futures, player futures, and early season game lines.
