Calgary looking for fourth win in a row vs Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings will try to break a two-game losing streak when they host the Calgary Flames at Little Caesars Arena. The Flames have been on a roll of late, going 5-1 SU in their last six games and jumping back into the playoff hunt in the Western Conference. Calgary took down Detroit last week 6-3 and opened at +100 to get the W.

  • Calgary is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games against Detroit.
  • Detroit is 6-1 ATS in its last 7 games at home.
  • The Flames are 7-0 SU and ATS in their last 7 games on the road vs teams with losing records.

The Flames have also been getting it done on the road. When they’re away from Scotiabank Saddledome, Calgary is 4-2 SU and ATS, including wins against potential playoff teams like Nashville, Los Angeles and Vancouver. But despite this recent success, they haven’t been a great puckline wager overall for bettors. Calgary has gone 2-6 ATS in its last eight and is 7-10 ATS this season. Stick to their moneyline if you plan to back the Flames in this matchup as they’ve beaten the Wings three times in a row.

Detroit, on the other hand, continues to struggle, going 4-9 SU in its last 13 games, and misses the glory days when the Red Wings were the class of the NHL. The offense hasn’t clicked this season as they’re in the bottom five in goals scored (2.72 per game). The good news is Detroit has been a great puckline pick for bettors at home this season at 5-1 ATS. The bad news is their record as a favorite at home is 1-1 SU and ATS and their lone win was against the putrid Arizona Coyotes. You may want to fade the Wings in this contest.

The total opened 5.5 and it’s shaping up to be an OVER at Little Caesars Arena. The Flames are averaging 5.25 goals in their last four games and, as I mentioned, buried six goals against Detroit last week. The OVER has hit in four of Calgary’s last five games and winger Johnny “Hockey” Gaudreau has scored four times in that span. When you factor in that Flames goalie Mike Smith may miss this game due to injury, the OVER could be easy money for bettors.
