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

Their record is slightly better than it should be. Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is -0.48 (includes playoff games) which ranks #23 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #22. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #20 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #30 in home games.
