The Dallas Stars and the Calgary Flames meet in NHL action from the Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Calgary is listed as a -130 home favorite while Dallas is a +110 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.
For Dallas, Mason Marchment, Tyler Seguin and Scott Wedgewood are all out for the foreseeable future while Oliver Kylington is out for the season for the Flames.
Calgary’s 5-4 win back on March 6th, 2023, made it three straight wins for the Flames in this head-to-head matchup.
Dallas is 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 2-5 in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 8-1-1 in their last 10 games overall. Calgary is 1-5 in their last 6 home games and 1-7 in their last 8 games following a win while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 home games.
I’m backing the over here. Both teams have been shaky with their goaltending as of late and I’m really not looking to back either side here if I can help it. Jake Oettinger looks like he’s having trouble adjusting to a full workload down the stretch, and the tandem of Jacob Markstrom and Dan Vladar are hard to trust as well. I think we’re heading for another 8-9 goal game here so give me the over.
