Panthers vs Flyers Odds: Flyers Sharing National Stage With Phillies

Panthers Look to Keep Pace in Atlantic; Flyers Hope to Continue Surprise Start

Panthers vs Flyers Odds Preview: Most Florida Panthers lines will have them as significant favorites, but when the number comes out on this match-up we expect there to be a reflection of the Flyers’ fast 4-2 start to be reflected in the number. Florida topped the NHL standings 2022 but after a 4-2 road loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, many are questioning if Paul Maurices’ team is going to be the same reliable wager they’ve been over the last couple of seasons.

Panthers Power Play Still Far from Powerful

Continuing Our Panthers vs Flyers Odds Preview: Florida led the National Hockey league with 4.11 goals per game last season. They were fifth in the league with the man advantage, producing a goal in 24.4% of their chances. Then the postseason started, and their potent offense finished last among all playoff participants (2.30).

Their once feared powerplay managed just one tally in 10 playoff games against the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning. The Presidents Cup winner was out as head coach Andrew Brunette. Despite the changes, it seems the Panther’s inept power play has followed them into this season after another dismal performance against Chicago where they had more than enough chances to improve on their now 2-33 mark with the man advantage.

Never once did the Panthers make Hawks goaltender Alex Stalock sweat despite almost 8 ½ minutes of power play time including a 5-on-3. As we continue to dive into the Panthers vs. Flyers game odds it’s worth noting that betting on NHL teams with high powered power plays has always been a consistent way to cash tickets.

Flyers Surprise of the NHL, van Riemsdyk Out a Month

For most observers of the National Hockey League, Philadelphia was the landing spot that made sense for both the Flyers and new head coach John Tortorella. That assessment has proven to be a match made in heaven through six games. Last season, only three teams were worse than the Flyers, but a 4-2 start has Gritty giddy, to say the least.

That assessment has proven to be a match made in heaven through six games. Last season, only three teams were worse than the Flyers, but a 4-2 start has Gritty giddy, to say the least.

This is a revenge spot for Philly after dropping a 4-3 decision to the Panthers a week ago in Sunrise. There is some bad news after it was announced that veteran winger James van Riemsdyk would miss the next month after breaking his finger against San Jose.

Bettors now have to figure out the impact of losing their third-leading scorer (5 points in six games). Only the Buffalo Sabres (+464 units) have produced more for the betting public than the Flyers (+462) to start the year.

Check Goaltenders Before Making Wager

It’s likely going to be Sergei Bobrovsky for the Panthers against Carter Hart for the Flyers but it’s extremely important to check social media to verify who is the first one off at the morning skate before placing a wager. Neither team is playing back-to-back so it’s likely you’ll see both teams’ top goaltenders.

In the Flyers’ loss to the Panthers last week, Felix Sandstrom, not Hart, took the loss but did make 32 saves. To conclude our Panthers vs Flyers odds preview, our official selection is to go with the home team and the plus money. As mentioned prior, a rule of thumb in NHL betting is to make sure the team you’re backing has a power play that will give bettors an advantage.
