REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES
They were expected to win 48% of their games last season so their 37-37-8 met expectations. Anyone betting on them to win every game would have lost a lot (-884) based on a 100 unit risk per game. They were not good on puck lines going 39-43 (-1676 loss). They went over 45 times and came in under 36 times. Their next game vs the Blackhawks should be close. The Flyers are winning 48 percent of computer simulations. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).
TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES
