NHL Metropolitan Division Odds: Flyers Make Their Move

NHL Metropolitan Division Odds

At the all-star break, the Metropolitan Division looked like it was already decided. But with only a handful of games remaining in the 2019-20 NHL regular season, the division is up in the air.

At Bovada, the Capitals are the +115 Metropolitan favorites, followed by the Philadelphia Flyers (+155), Pittsburgh Penguins (+275), Columbus Blue Jackets (+3500), New York Islanders (+6600), Carolina Hurricanes (+6600), New York Rangers (+12500) and New Jersey Devils (+500000).

Metropolitan Could Come Down to the Wire

On January 28, the Capitals were the odds-on -185 faves to win the Metropolitan. The Caps have some company, though, as they now have only a one-point edge on Philly at the top of the division standings with 90 and 89 points respectively. Pittsburgh is within striking distance at 86 points, while the Blue Jackets (81) have some major work to do to catch up at this point.

The hottest team in the NHL is undoubtedly the Flyers. Led by red-hot goaltender Carter Hart, Philly went on a nine-game winning streak from late February to early March that came to an end on March 10 at the hands of the Boston Bruins.

Flyers are Streaking Right Now

The Caps, Flyers and Penguins all have 12 games to go, so expect the home stretch to be a bloodbath. Philly has three remaining divisional games on its schedule, but a March 29 home date against the Pens will likely have huge playoff implications.

Pittsburgh has hit a wall at the wrong time. The Penguins have struggled mightily of late, dropping eight of their last 11 as of March 11. A six-game losing streak after the trade deadline caused the Penguins to lose some ground in the Metropolitan race, but they’re still very much in the mix.
