Flyers Vegas odds vs. online odds
Odds at sportsbooks are pretty similar across the board. This is because most lines are based on the same model that the oddsmakers in Vegas have used for a long time. Until recently, sports betting was only legal in Las Vegas and the oddsmakers there mastered the craft of creating lines. They do a pretty good job of setting lines, so other sportsbooks use theirs as a template.
The main difference between the Vegas odds and the odds on local sportsbooks would be odds for the local team. Some sportsbooks want to limit their exposure and risk on the home team, so they might shave lines to get more action against the local teams like the Flyers.
Flyers live betting
If you’ve missed puck-drop, it’s not too late to get in on the action. Top sportsbooks have invested heavily in making sure live betting is as easy as pre-game betting.
Live betting entails betting on a game that is currently ongoing, with the odds having been adjusted for what has already happened in the game. If the first period had 3 goals scored in it, the live over/under might now be 7.5 compared to the pregame line of 5.5. If the team that was favored to win pre-game gives up the first goal, they might be a live underdog.
Not overreacting to what has happened leads to opportunities for profitable live betting. Remember, oddsmakers are very often completely wrong. If a line has moved a tremendous amount from what it was before the game, bet on the results to regress closer to what was expected before the game.
Flyers prop betting
Just like other sports, hockey offers plenty of props to bet on. A prop bet is a bet on something to occur within the game. Some examples of hockey props include:
- Period betting: Who will win the first period? Will the second period go over or under 1.5 goals? If you only have time to watch a period of the game, this is a great way to get invested.
- First player to score: Who do you think will score the first goal of the game? With this outcome being relatively random, payouts can be large. Even the best scorers in the game have odds over +500, while some lesser players can have payouts as high as 30-1.
- Will the game go to overtime?: If you’re expecting a close game, you can bet on the game to go to overtime. Over 23% of NHL games go to overtime, so if you can pick the right spot, you can get odds near 3-1 on ‘yes’

Flyers bench staff
Head coach: Alain Vigneault (since April 2019)
Vigneault was hired by the Flyers before the 2019-20 season. In his first season, Vigneault led the Flyers to a 41-21-7 record. Before the Flyers, Vigneault coached the Montreal Canadiens, Vancouver Canucks, and New York Rangers. His all-time coaching record is 689-456-140. He has led two of his teams to the Stanley Cup Final but is yet to win the Cup.
Assistant coach: Michel Therrien
Therrien joined Vigneault’s staff with Philadelphia in 2019. Therrien replaced Vigneault as Montreal’s head coach in 2000. Therrien went on to coach the Pittsburgh Penguins and was fired during the 2009 Stanley Cup-winning season. He then returned to Montreal where he coached until 2017. With a vast amount of head-coaching experience, Therrien will be an asset to Vigneault.
Assistant coach: Mike Yeo
Mike Yeo is another former NHL head coach who finds himself as an assistant on the Flyers coaching staff. Yeo coached the Minnesota Wild from 2011 through 2016. He then coached the St. Louis Blues from February 2017 through November 2018. He was fired, and then the Blues went on to win the Stanley Cup later that season.
Assistant coach: Ian Laperriere
Laperriere is a recently retired NHL player, best known for his tenacious and gritty work ethic. It’s no surprise he coaches the Flyers penalty killing, a role he was well known for as a player.
Goaltending coach: Kim Dillabaugh
Dillabaugh joined the Flyers coaching staff after eight seasons with the Los Angeles Kings where he developed the likes of Jonathan Quick, Jonathan Bernier, and Martin Jones. Flyers fans hope for similar success with Carter Hart and the rest of the goaltenders in the organization.
