Flames Heating Up for OVER Bettors

Jonas Hiller Calgary Flames NHL

The struggling Calgary Flames do not provide bettors any consistent value in moneyline markets, but they have been on a tear for OVER bettors in recent contests. OVER backers will look for that to continue when the Flames head to STAPLES Center and visit the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Kings are 1-5 SU in their last six games as favorites.
  • The Kings are 7-2 SU in the last nine games against the division.
  • UNDER has cashed in four of the last five meetings between the Kings and Flames.

OVER tickets have cashed in four-consecutive Flames games heading into Tuesday night’s contest versus the Kings courtesy a whopping eight goals per game on average over that span. The Flames have been on the wrong end of the scoreboard in three of those four games, as opponents have lit the lamp 18 times.

The Kings finally snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 overtime victory over the Nashville Predators Saturday night. While Calgary has been a hot OVER wager, the Kings have been equally reliable for UNDER bettors. A complete lack of goalscoring has helped the UNDER cash in four-straight Kings' games as L.A. has managed just four goals in the previous four contests.

With both the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks making a serious push toward the top spot in the Pacific Division, the Kings need to start stringing some wins together and keep their spot on the throne.
