The Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets meet Saturday in NHL action at the Bell MTS Place.

The Calgary Flames look for another win after winning eight of their last 12 games. The Calgary Flames are averaging 3.6 goals per game and are scoring on 21.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Johnny Gaudreau leads Calgary with 33 goals, Mark Giordano has 51 assists and Sean Monahan has 192 shots on goal. Defensively, the Calgary Flames are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 79.7 percent of their opponents power plays. David Rittich has given up 99 goals on 1,090 shots faced and Mike Smith has allowed 96 goals on 920 shots. The Calgary Flames have allowed three or less goals in 10 of their last 13 games.

The Winnipeg Jets look for a big home win after splitting their last 10 games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 25.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Mark Scheifele leads Winnipeg with 33 goals, Blake Wheeler has 66 assists and Patrik Laine has 223 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing three goals per game and are killing 79 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 157 goals on 1,731 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has allowed 44 goals on 617 shots. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed three or more goals in 11 of their last 13 games.

The Flames are 21-8 in their last 29 games following a win, 12-5 in their last 17 Saturday games and 10-4 in their last 14 overall. The Jets are 8-0 in their last 8 games as a home underdog, 54-26 in their last 80 games as a favorite and 66-26 in their last 92 home games. The Flames are 7-3 in the last 10 meetings and the home team is 20-8-1 in the last 29 meetings. The over is 20-9-3 in Flames last 32 overall. The over is 5-1-1 in Jets last 7 overall.

The Winnipeg Jets probably should be favored here on their home ice, but we're getting plus money with one of the hotter teams in the league in the Calgary Flames. The Flames have lost just four games in the last month and have consistently shown up with their defense that travels well. The value is with the Flames and the plus money based on what they've done over the last month in terms of finding ways to win on a consistent basis. 

Pick:
Calgary Flames +112
