Flyers Daily: A Look at Some Odds Worth Taking; NHL News



Sean Couturier, Philadelphia Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers are lowly regarded around the NHL. The oddsmakers give them little respect.

Earlier this week, center Sean Couturier said the Flyers “don’t seem to have that big superstar or big-name guys, but as a team, I think we can come together and do some damage and prove everyone wrong.”

The oddsmakers agree with Couturier’s point about not having any superstars.

BetOnline lists 58 players as candidates for the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP. No one from the Philadelphia Flyers is in that group.

The leading candidate is Connor McDavid (13/5), followed by Auston Matthews (5/1), Leon Draisaitl (15/2), and Nathan MacKinnon (10/1).

Looking for some good longshots?

Try the ageless Alex Ovechkin (28/1), David Pastrnak (33/1), Matthew Tkachuk (50/1), Kris Kreider (66/1), or Victor Hedman (100/1).
