Flames' Scoring Issues are Creating Headaches for Bettors

The Calgary Flames haven’t been coming through for their bettors and it’s almost solely because of their struggles to find the back of the net. With a home date vs the Washington Capitals on tap for Sunday, the Flames will attempt to buck that trend in front of the Flames faithful.

Xbet opened the Caps as +108 road underdogs with a total of 5.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Flames are 0-4 in their last four vs the Eastern Conference.
  • The road team is 5-1 in the last six meetings between the Flames and Blues.
  • The OVER is 7-1 in Capitals last eight vs the Pacific Division.

The Flames, who stand 29th in the league at 2.27 goals per game, have been held to two or fewer tallies in eight of 11 games so far and managed to score just eight times in their current 1-4-0 stretch.

The Capitals aren’t exactly setting the world on fire either. Before their road trip, Washington was beaten in four of its previous five game and has been outscored 12-3 in the second of back-to-backs this year.

Washington has generally been a reliable bet when facing the Flames of late. In the Capitals last six meetings with the Flames, they’ve earned a point every single time by going 4-0-2.
