Flames look to stay hot at home vs Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs take on the Calgary Flames tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome and the young bucks from Toronto are in a bit of a mini-slump, going 1-3 SU in their last four games. They’ll have to contend with the Flames, who are 5-1 SU in their last six games at home. The Leafs opened as +104 road dogs to get the victory on the Red Mile.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Flames’ last 10 games.
  • The Flames are 5-1 SU in their last six games against teams with winning records.
  • The Maple Leafs are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games.

Despite the recent struggles, the Leafs are still playing decent hockey to start the season. At 15-10 SU, Toronto sits fourth in the Eastern Conference and looks primed to secure a playoff spot. Their only downfall (broken record alert) may be their goaltending. Starting netminder Frederik Andersen currently ranks 32nd in GAA and 26th in save percentage and the Leafs are the only team with a winning record when their goaltender ranks in the 20s in those metrics. 

The Flames have been red-hot at home and it’s mainly due to their top line. Johnny Gaudreau currently ranks second in the league in scoring with 34 points and Sean Monahan is not far behind with 26. The good news for Flames backers is they’re at the Saddledome. The home team has won the last 10 games when these two teams have matched up. Bettors may want to consider riding the Flames tonight.

The total opened at 6 in this matchup and the OVER looks promising. The OVER has hit in four straight in Flames’ home games and seven of their last 10. When you factor in the Leafs average over 3.5 goals per game this season, the OVER should be seriously considered by bettors.
