The Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers square off in a non-conference matchup Saturday for the first time since October 2019.
We’ve already seen some movement on the betting odds, so let’s get into all that and more.
Blackhawks-Flyers Betting Odds
|Date||Saturday, March 5|
|Time||3 p.m. ET|
*Odds via BetMGM, updated at 10 a.m. ET
The biggest mover’s actually been the total number of goals, shifting from 5.5 to 6 during the early cycle.
We’ve tracked a whopping 94% of the public betting tickets on the over, the most of any total on Saturday’s 10-game board.
Our projections probably would have signed off on the over at 5.5, but not 6 — it’s exactly where we peg Saturday’s number.
The other hot bet, meanwhile, is the Blackhawks +1.5 in the neighborhood of -230.
Although that’s relatively expensive, 88% of the public’s already locked in on the road team +1.5. That’s the second-most popular spread bet of the day.
Blackhawks & Flyers Betting Records
While they don’t own the worst overall record in the league, the Flyers — who are 16-38 straight-up entering the weekend — have been the biggest flop in the betting market.
Anyone wagering $100 on Philadelphia every game this season would be down -$1,912 total, the worst clip in hockey.
The Hawks, meanwhile, haven’t been that much better.
Chicago’s burned $1,315 down the drain, alongside an ugly -24.5% ROI this season for $100 bettors.
The franchise has struggled mightily in the underdog role, too.
Since the start of the 2019-20 season, the Blackhawks are 36-58 overall in this spot, with a -9.5% ROI.
Anyone betting $100 on Chicago in every game it wasn’t the favorite over that span would be down -$895 (you can find more stats like these using Bet Labs).
