BETTING TRENDS

Calgary are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games.

Calgary are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games against Winnipeg.

Winnipeg are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 12 of Winnipeg's last 18 games against Calgary.

Prediction

The Flames have already clinched the playoffs but they still continue to win. Their offense is on fire and are averaging 4.3 goals in their last 10 games. The Jets are eliminated so don't expect much energy from them on this game. The Flames prolly are going to take it easy as well but they're the better team so I'm trusting on them to end the season with a win.
