Statistical models favour the Flames fairly heavily in this one. HockeyViz.com has their win probability at around 54% likely. Based on how the Flames defend and how the Blues attack it’s looking like a really good possible night for the Flames goaltender. If Calgary can get to even more dangerous areas in the middle of the ice they can give the Blues goaltender fits.
Primary Bet – St. Louis Blues total goals under 2.5 (+100)
A $1 bet pays out $2 – Normally I would say this is crazy but the Blues have only broken 2 total goals scored in 1 game so far this season. They don’t have anyone outside Robert Thomas to really stir the drink for them so if Calgary can lock down their top lines they should be able to over-match them with depth.
Secondary Bet – Over 59.5 shots on goal (-125)
A $1 bet pays out $1.80 – Calgary and the Rangers kept things pretty low-event as such i expect Calgary to have more bite and more shoot to their game. All the media can talk about is how the Flames still can’t score – no doubt they can hear a bit of that residual noise.
Tertiary Bet – Calgary Flames to win ML and Mikael Backlund to have 1+ points (+125)
A $1 bet pays out $2.25 – If Backlund is going to be with Coleman and Mangiapane the whole game we know the Flames will have at least one line pushing the play in the right direction. Based on how St. Louis has been to this point that may be all they need to win.
