Blues look to continue dominance vs flashy Flames

Can the Calgary Flames get recognition as one of the best teams in the Western Conference? At 9-7 SU to start the season, the Flames will welcome a true test to Scotiabank Saddledome when they host the St. Louis Blues to walk the Red Mile.

SHARK BITES
  • The Blues are 12-2 SU in their last 14 games after a loss.
  • St. Louis is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 against Calgary.
  • Calgary is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games at home.

Athough the Flames are currently in contention for a playoff spot, they’ve been a horrible puckline pick for bettors. Calgary is 1-8 ATS at home in its last nine games and 6-10 ATS overall this season. The Flames’ -1.5 puckline opened at +270 and although the juice is appealing, backers could be in for a disastrous result facing a tough Blues squad.

Speaking of the Blues, not much has gone wrong for this Midwest franchise this season. At 13-5 SU overall, St. Louis has been on a tear this year that’s gotten the team to the top of the Western Conference. After taking a tough loss at home on Saturday to the red-hot Islanders, the Blues kick off a three-game road trip to Western Canada and that’s fine by them. The Blues have an impressive road record this season at 6-3 SU and 7-2 ATS. St. Louis can also continue its dominance over the Flames, as the Blues hold a 7-3 SU record in the last 10 games in this matchup.

Totals bettors eyeing the 5.5 goals in this one may want to consider the UNDER. The total has gone UNDER in four of St. Louis’ last five games on the road and the Blues are one of the better defensive teams in the league, only allowing 2.44 goals per game (ranked third in the NHL). When you factor in that Calgary is only averaging 2.75 goals per game (ranked 24th), this matchup is shaping up to be a low-scoring affair.
