BETTING TRENDS

Dallas are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Dallas are 12-6 SU in their last 18 games when playing on the road against Calgary.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Calgary's last 8 games.

Calgary are 13-7 SU in their last 20 games.

Prediction

This has been a more defensive battle than the other series. The Stars are averaging 2.3 goals per game while allowing 2.3 goals. The Flames are the #1 defense in the league and are allowing 2.1 goals per game in their last 10 games. We should see another close game and I think the best bet is the under.

PICK: Under 5.5 (-110)
