The NHL Restart is underway and online sportsbook operators are reporting a massive increase in hockey betting action over the past few days. It’s been 5 months since teams took the ice in the US or Canada.

Starting now there will be multiple games per day in the exciting March-madness like bubble format that the NHL has created. Top teams with clinched playoff spots will play each other in a round robin to decide playoff positioning. The rest of the teams in the NHL east and west, with a chance to make the round of 16, will face off in 5-game series to decide who advances and who goes home.

Flyers are a top bet to win the Stanley Cup

One of the NHL teams seeing the most betting action at DraftKings Sportsbook is the Philadelphia Flyers. The 4th seed in the eastern conference round robin, the Flyers were on a hot streak when the season paused back in March.

Having gone 14-4 since February 1st, the Flyers have seen their Stanley Cup odds cut in half. At BetMGM the Flyers are +1200 odds to win the Stanley cup ($100 to win $1200).  That’s equal to the  3-seed Washington Capitals.

It’s clear that the betting public agrees with the oddsmakers that the Flyers have a great shot to win it all in the NHL Bubble. At DraftKings Sportsbook the Flyers now are carrying 12% of both the money and the most total bets to hoist the Cup. That’s second only to the Colorado Avalanche who account for 19% of the Stanley Cup winner bets at DK.

The Eastern Conference splits also indicate strong support for PHI.18% of the money and 21% of the bets are backing them to win the East and advance to the finals. While the rival Boston Bruins have 20% of the East winner tickets.
