Famous for being known as the “Broad Street Bullies” in the 1970′s, the Philadelphia Flyers are an organization that has done a little bit of everything since joining the league in the 1967 expansion. The 1970′s were a great decade for Flyers fans with leaders like Bobby Clarke up front and Bernie Parent in goal. Those two players were the catalysts for back-to-back Stanley Cup championships in 1974 and 1975. Typically it takes expansion teams a decade or two before championships become part of the conversation.
However, the Flyers success early on helped the brand explode in popularity. To this day, Philadelphia Flyers betting lines are ones that sportsbooks take a ton of action on.

Betting On The Philadelphia Flyers
The Philadelphia Flyers have not been able to lift the Stanley Cup since those years in the 1970′s, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t had plenty of success since then. Philadelphia’s most recent appearance in the Stanley Cup Final came during the 2009-10 season, and although it didn’t end up in a championship, Philadelphia’s brass knows how critical it is to field a playoff-ready team each and every year.
It is for that reason that you’ll often see Philadelphia’s betting lines priced in the -120 to -140 favourite range in nearly every home game as they’ve got one of the best home ice advantages in the league. Remember, if the Flyers are listed as -140 favorites to win a game, that means you’ll have to wager $140 to win $100 when backing the Flyers.
While many of the core guys from Philadelphia’s 2009-10 Stanley Cup Finals run have moved on to new teams, a young Claude Giroux really stepped up for the team that year and has been the centerpiece of this organization ever since. The Flyers haven’t been able to duplicate that success since then, but this is an organization that is always backed by a great management and scouting team. Philadelphia’s brass are never scared to get the right pieces (draft, trade, or free agency) to make sure their team is a competitive bunch and they are always a team to pay attention too on a yearly basis.
