Nashville Predators @ Calgary Flames: PREDATORS 2.03

Yes, you are reading this correctly, odds makers have actually opened the Calgary Flames as favorites tonight against Nashville. The line opened at 2.05, is now 2.03, and we will likely see the Flames as the underdog as the day progresses. We can’t see many bettors paying juice on the Calgary Flames.. The Flames managed a 3-2 win against Phoenix on Wednesday (3-2) but before that they had lost 4 games in a row, and 7 of their last 10. The Calgary offense has scored just 1.80 goals per game over their last 10 games, and overall their offense is the 2nd worst in the NHL scoring just 2.18 goals per game overall. The Flames defense is the 3rd worst in the League allowing 3.10 goals against per game, and have allowed 3.20 GA/G over their last 10 games. The Predators have won two in a row, and 4 of their last 5 games, one of which includes a 4-2 victory over the Flames on January 14th. The Predators sits 25th overall with 2.42 goals per game, however the Preds have scored 2.50 goals per game over their last 10 games, and have put 18 goals on the board in their last 5 games, an average of 3.60 goals per game. The Flames penalty kill has been a complete disaster, going just 68.8% on the penalty kill over their last 10 games, and allowed Nashville to capitalize on 50% of their chances on Tuesday. The Predators power play has been exceptional, as they have gone a solid 25% on the power play over their L10 games, and their power play remains 21.2% overall, giving the Predators the 6th best power play in the NHL. When it comes to discipline, the Flames are taking 12.5 penalty minutes per game while the Predators are slightly more disciplined with 10.2 PIM/G. The Flames may have managed to sneak past Phoenix on Wednesday however they haven’t won two games in a row since December 12-14, a 2-1 victory against Carolina (OT) and a 2-1 victory against Buffalo (also OT). To get almost any team at a plus money price against the Flames provides value; we will back the Predators tonight and look for them to secure their 3rd win in a row tonight against Calgary.
