The NHL began the 2021 season on Jan. 13, 2021. Each team plays a 56-game regular-season schedule with a 16-team Stanley Cup Playoffs beginning in May 2021.
The playoffs will feature a traditional best-of-seven, four-round format and wrap up in mid-July with plans to return to a normal NHL schedule for the 2021-22 season, starting in October 2021. The divisions have been realigned for 2020-21 and play will be exclusively interdivisional to minimize travel.
Games will be played in teams’ home arenas. Fans are not permitted to attend in most arenas to start the season, including Philadelphia, where the city has implemented pandemic guidelines making it clear fans are not permitted in sporting events hosted at the Wells Fargo Center.
However, that may change as the season goes on. The NHL is also prepared to play games in neutral venues if necessary.
The Philadelphia Flyers will compete in the realigned East Division in the 2020-21 season. That means they will only play against other East Division teams, including the:

The 2019–20 Philadelphia Flyers regular season was cut short when the NHL suspended play in March 2020 due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
However, The Flyers were a playoff team and eventually played in a neutral location bubble seeding round-robin tournament, finishing with a 3-0-0 record and winning the first seed for NHL Playoffs the first time in 20 years.
The Flyers went on to beat the Montreal Canadiens in six games in the first round of the playoffs but lost to the New York Islanders in seven games in the second round.
Sean Couturier won the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the top defensive forward in the league. Travis Konecny was the team’s top scorer and an NHL All-Star Game selection.
Above is a typical Philadelphia Flyers betting line.
First, you see the puck line with the odds on the bet in brackets. Puck lines are almost always 1.5 goals, although you can bet on alternative lines at different odds as well.
Here, the Rangers have to win by at least two, but Philly can win or lose by one. The posted odds dictate both bets pay $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet.
Next, you see the moneyline odds. Bet on the Flyers and if they win, you win $155, plus your bet back, for every $100 bet. Bet on the Rangers and if they win, you win $100, plus your bet back, for every $175 bet.
Finally, there’s the totals line with the odds on the bet in brackets. Here, you bet that the total score will be over or under 4.5 goals.
Get it right and the posted odds dictate you win $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet.
You can expect most Philadelphia Flyers odds and lines to open up the same in Vegas as they do at PA sportsbooks. However, that may change by the time the puck drops.
Lines move independently based on betting at a particular sportsbook, which means a line might change at a PA sportsbook, but not in Las Vegas, based on how much betting there is on one side.
Sportsbooks set lines to draw an equal amount of betting to each side of a bet. Then, they can make a profit off the vig without having to sweat the outcome.
When more money is bet on one side they’ll move the line to try to get back to even. That means the line changes at that sportsbook, not everywhere, and that’s why most Flyers lines open the same everywhere but might end up different by the start of the game.
PA online sportsbooks offer live betting and props for all NHL games. That means you can bet on all kinds of Flyers props and live bet Flyers games that are already underway.
Props mostly surround betting on the team and individual stat lines. However, live NHL betting is where things get exciting. Live NHL betting gives you the chance to bet on Flyers games in the middle of the action with odds that change on the fly.
The odds change so quickly so a sports betting app on your phone is one of the best ways to bet on them.
NHL live betting lines are mostly the same ones you see pregame, but they may also include period-based bets and a larger number of in-game NHL props.
SugarHouse Sports has since rebranded as BetRivers, but it signed on to become the Flyers official sportsbook partner back in 2019 and remains the top place to bet on the NHL and the Flyers online in PA. BetRivers uses Kambi tech making it competitive with the rest of the PA sports betting market.
There are multiple markets and events to bet on through the app, competitive lines, easy navigation between all sports and bet types, and BetRivers accepts major credit cards, PayNearMe, and cash at affiliated casinos.
Rivers offers new players a 100% first deposit match bonus up to $250 when they sign up for an account using the bonus code PLAY250 and make a deposit. Plus, there’s only a one-time playthrough requirement, making this bonus and the BetRivers PA app a great way to get started betting on the Flyers this season.

The Philadelphia Flyers have been around the NHL since 1967 and were the first expansion team in the post–Original Six era to win the Stanley Cup (1973–74).
The Flyers have played home games in an arena on Broad Street since the beginning. It was the Spectrum from 1967 until 1996, and then Wells Fargo Center. The team’s Broad Street Bullies nickname was born out of a team reputation for toughness and the address.
The Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1973–74 and 1974–75, but those remain the team’s only championships. Those teams were led by Bobby Clarke, who played his entire 15-year career with Philadelphia. Clarke is a three-time Hart Trophy winner and Hockey Hall of Fame inductee. He also won the Frank J. Selke Trophy one time.
Clarke helped the team return to competitiveness in the 1990s as general manager. Eric Lindros won a Hart Trophy as the league’s MVP in the lockout-shortened 1994–95 season for a Flyers team under Clarke’s management.
The Flyers were competitive again in the late 2000s and have won, all told, eight conference championships and 16 division championships.

The company was formed in 1974 by former Flyers founder and chairman Ed Snider, who died in April 2016.
Claude Giroux is the current Flyers captain. He’s also led the team in scoring three of the past five years. Giroux is from Canada and the Flyers are the only NHL team he’s ever played for.
Flyers tickets are among the most expensive in the NHL, ranging from an average of $240-$350 per game. Center City Club access tickets average between $9,840 and $14,350 per season.
However, fans will not be permitted to attend games at Wells Fargo Center to start the 2021 season. The city has implemented pandemic guidelines stating fans are not permitted in sporting events hosted at the arena.
The Philadelphia Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1973–74 and 1974–75. They were the first expansion team in the post–Original Six era to win the Stanley Cup, but haven’t won since.
