With the NFL season coming to a close soon, many gamblers will start to shift their focus to the NBA and NHL. You can beat them to the punch while the lines are still reasonable. Here's a breakdown of all the Flyers odds that Fanduel has set for this season:
+1700 to win the Stanley Cup (T-6th best odds)
+450 to finish first in the East Division (T-2nd best odds)
-190 to make the playoffs
Team & Player Point Totals
The over/under for Flyers points this season is set at 67.7 (-120/-110)
The over/under for points from Sean Couturier this season is set at 49.5 (-115/-115)
The over/under for points from Claude Giroux this season is set at 45.5 (-115/-115)
The over/under for points from Travis Konecny this season is set at 40.5 (-115/-115)
Travis Konecny is +9000 to win the Hart Trophy
Claude Giroux is +5500 to win the Hart Trophy
Sean Couturier is +4800 to win the Hart Trophy
Carter Hart is +4800 to win the Hart Trophy
Travis Konecny is +4000 to win the Art Ross Trophy
Travis Konecny is +4800 to win the Rocket Richard Trophy
Carter Hart is +1000 to win the Vezina Trophy (T-3rd best odds)
Ivan Provorov is +2400 to win the Norris Trophy
Morgan Frost is +4900 to win the Calder Trophy
•The Flyers got some much-needed playoff experience last season, which should be beneficial for this young team moving forward. The team has quality depth in all three facets of the game, so this could be the year where it is worth putting some money down on the team winning it all (or the very least earning first place in the East Division) •If COVID protocols and injuries are avoided, I could see Couturier, Giroux, and Konecny all surpassing those point totals. This would likely be the riskiest of all of these bets, as even just exposure to the virus could potentially wipe any of these players out for a week or two for them to quarantine, which would kill any chances of you getting your big payout.
•The best bet for any individual player would easily be for Hart to win the Vezina Trophy. He's coming off a great performance in his first playoff appearance, and he has already built a reputation for playing solid in home games. Road games were a bit tricky for him last season, but with COVID causing all teams to play in empty/nearly empty arenas this season he should put out solid play at home and on the road in 2021. •Provorov could be a sneaky Norris candidate. He finished 17th in voting for the award last season (due to his lack of recognition from PHWA members across the country). Now with an "A" on his chest, he should start getting even more eyeballs on him this season. He's probably one or two more years away from becoming a perennial favorite, but there's a chance he could cut some corners this season and steal the award.
Gamble at your own risk....but the Flyers could help make your pockets deeper this season.
