Let’s take a look at some betting trends for this match-up. Arizona is 7-16 SU in its last 23 games and 2-8 SU in its last 10 games on the road. Also, Arizona is 0-5 SU in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Calgary. However, Calgary is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games and 2-5 SU in its last 7 games at home. Arizona has the third most power play chances in the league at 4.1 per game. Calgary has the third worst shots on goal in the league at 26.7 per game. Calgary also gives up the third fewest power plays allowing 2.8 per game.
When looking over this match-up I leaned Calgary at the start. However, I got to the injury report and that’s when I changed my mind completely. Here is the list of players out for Calgary tonight. Mikael Backlund, Mason Raymond, Matt Stajan, Sam Bennett, David Jones is questionable and Sven Baertschi is probable. Look, Arizona has not won in nearly three years in Calgary. However, Arizona is in a better spot health wise than Calgary currently sits. Jonas Hiller is in net for the Flames tonight, but I feel that Arizona will wear down this beat up Flames team and take the win tonight. Remember, taking the underdog in this spot has so much value in it because of Calgary’s injury bug. Calgary is only favored based on their recent success against Arizona at home. However, I believe tonight is a different story. Best of Luck!!!!
