The Calgary Flames have a date this afternoon with the team who sit seventh in the league standings, the Winnipeg Jets. The Flames have outplayed the Jets recently, winning three of their last four games — but should be a tough battle today with the recent play of both these teams. The Jets have won three straight, while the Flames have lost three in a row. 
Tonight’s expected goalie match-up: The Jets’ Connor Hellebuyck (26-10-3) vs. The Flames’ Jacob Markstrom (17-15-2).

Calgary Flames & Winnipeg Jets under 5.5 (-115)

Your $10.00 bet would return $18.69.
The Flames made James Reimer look like a Vezina trophy candidate in their last game as he finished with a 38-save shutout. Today’s opponent is an actual Vezina trophy candidate, Connor Hellebuyck. 
The Jets have gone under this total in seven of their last nine games, while the Flames have gone under in two of their previous three games. Historically, these two teams have gone under this line in five of their last six head-to-head meetings. 

Nikolaj Ehlers over 2.5 shots on goal (-125)

Your $10.00 bet would return $18.00.
Nikolaj Ehlers has covered this line in seven of his last 10 road games, averaging 3.3 shots on 7.2 shot attempts. On the road season, Ehlers is clearing at a 68% clip, averaging 3.1 shots on 6.6 shot attempts. 
Against the Flames, Ehlers has cleared in four straight games, averaging 3.5 shots on 6.5 shot attempts. The Flames allow the third most shots on goal to wingers, averaging 13 shots per game. Ehlers leads the Jets on 5-on-5 shot attempts and shots on goal — a perfect matchup for Ehlers as the Flames are very disciplined, only allowing 2.4 power play opportunities over their last 10 games. 
Bonus Bet:
If a point line drops for Sean Monahan, this would be an additional play for me. It’s certainly scary to take both the under and the a-point prop, but with the revenge game angle against the team that drafted him, there’s some value to be had there. In his most recent outing, Monahan registered his first point as a Jet — expect him to extend the streak tonight. 

Last Game Recap

Calgary Flames Team Total Over 3.5 – LOSS – (-$10.00)
James Reimer Under 28.5 Saves – LOSS – (-$10.00)
Dylan Larkin Over 2.5 Shots on Goal – LOSS – (-$10.00)
This was the James Reimer revitalization game. This game was never close, as he shut out the Flames. Due to the blowout, Larkin didn’t need to shoot as they carried a lead for the majority of the game. 
All-Time Record: 32-40 (-$78.62)
