The Winnipeg Jets are in Calgary tonight where they take on the Flames. The Jets haven’t had much luck versus the Flames of late losing 7 of the last 11 meetings overall and 8 of the last 10 played in Calgary. This has also been a fairly high scoring series with 9 of the last 13 meetings going over the total.
Head to Head Trends
Jets are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Calgary.
Over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
Calgary Flames (-120)
The Calgary Flames are 6th in the Pacific Division with 63 points 26 points out of 1st place and 12 points out of the final playoff spot in the West so even if they were to win all their remaining 13 games they probably still wouldn’t make the playoffs.
The Flames had a rough start to the season especially on defense allowing over 4 goals per game for the first month or so but they did turn things around during the middle part of the season although it looks like they are back to their old ways again allowing 3.50 goals per game over their last 10 games.
Calgary Flames Trends
Over is 5-1 in Flames last 6 vs. a team with a losing record.
Flames are 4-12 in their last 16 overall.
Winnipeg Jets (+110)
The Winnipeg Jets are last in the Central Division with 63 points 28 points out of 1st place and like the Flames they are also 12 points out of the final playoff spot in the West so it looks like they are out of the playoff picture as well.
The Jets had a decent team earlier in the season and I thought they might have a shot at the post season because they had such a good offense and that was masking their poor defense but once the goals started to dry up so did the wins.
Winnipeg Jets Trends
Jets are 4-10 in their last 14 overall.
Jets are 3-8 in their last 11 in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation.
I’m going to do something I very rarely ever do and that is bet the total. I like this game to go over the 5.5 goal total. Both teams suck on defense the Flames actually have the worst defense in the league allowing 3.12 goals per game while the Jets have the 5th worst defense allowing 2.93 goals per game.
