Totals bettors eyeing the UNDER between Ducks and Flames

The Anaheim Ducks start a four-game road trip tonight with their first stop vs the Calgary Flames. The Ducks are riding a three-game win streak and are 10-5 SU in their last 15 games this season. Anaheim opened as a slight dog to get a victory at Scotiabank Saddledome and will aim to give Calgary its fourth straight loss.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Ducks’ last five games with two days off between games.
  • Calgary is 0-5 ATS in its last five games.
  • Anaheim is 4-1 SU in its last five games on the road vs Calgary.

The Ducks are hanging on by two points in a crowded Western Conference playoff race. Anaheim’s defense has kept the team in games since the all-star break as the Ducks have only allowed 2.35 goals per game (second in the NHL) in that span. But goal scoring has been close to non-existent as Rickard Rakell is the only forward on the squad with more than 30 goals. If bettors are planning to back the Ducks, they should know Anaheim has owned the matchup with the Flames, winning 16 of the last 19 meetings (including playoffs).

As for the Flames, they’re free-falling in the standings and sit six points back of Anaheim for the final wild-card spot in the West. One of the main reasons for Calgary’s decline has been its defense, which has allowed 3.48 goals per game since the all-star break and 16 goals during its recent three-game losing streak. The Flames have also been a terrible bet at home lately, going 3-10 SU in their last 13 games at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The total opened at 5.5 and the UNDER could be a profitable wager in this tilt. Calgary is ranked 28th in goals per game in March (2.22) while Anaheim’s defensive exploits have been noted. It’s also worth mentioning that the UNDER has hit in four straight games in this matchup.
