BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Edmonton's last 5 games.

Edmonton are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games against Calgary.

Edmonton are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Calgary.

The total has gone OVER in 5 of Calgary's last 6 games.

Calgary are 0-7 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 8 of Calgary's last 10 games against Edmonton.

Calgary are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games at home..

 

Prediction

The Oilers have had some very tough games lately and won in overtime their last game against the Panthers but they have 2 days of rest. The Flames are on a 7 game losing streak and have struggled to score averaging only 1.8 goals per game. The last time these teams met it was a high scoring game but with the Flames struggling offensively I think the Oilers will win this game easy.

PICK: Oilers -1.5 (+110)
