Calgary is 3-7 in their last 10 games overall and 10-2 in their last 12 games as a favorite while the over is 13-4-3 in their last 20 road games. Winnipeg is 9-4 in their last 13 home games and 5-1 in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I have come back and forth on this game, and It’s hard to pick apart this matchup to grab a side. However, as low as I’ve been on the Flames and Jacob Markstrom, the Flames haven’t been playing all that bad and Markstrom’s actually starting to round into form for his new team. It’s a coin flip of coin flips, but there may be something to Calgary being favored on the road. I’ll lay the points with the Flames in this one.
