Flames vs Jets | OddsShark Matchup Report
The Flames’ performance in Saturday’s victory over the Canadiens as +110 underdogs at betting sites marked a dramatic turnaround for the club after they were thoroughly outplayed in a 4-2 defeat to open the two-game set at Bell Centre. Jacob Markstrom stopped all 37 shots he faced to earn his second shutout of the season, while also halting the club’s six-game losing streak against Montreal.
Markstrom now faces the challenge of halting a personal six-game losing streak against the Jets, and earn his first-ever winning decision in Winnipeg. The 30-year-old sports a 2-9-2 record in 13 career dates with the Jets, including an 0-5-1 mark at Bell MTS Place while allowing just under five goals per game.
The Flames as a whole have also struggled in recent dates with Winnipeg. The club dropped a 4-2 decision in Winnipeg in their season opener on January 14, extending their current losing streak in regular season matchups in Winnipeg to three games.
Calgary shooters have also struggled to find the back of the net when battling the Jets on the road, scoring just five total goals during the team’s current three-game slide, and one or fewer goals in six of their past nine visits. That has helped to fuel a reliable 7-1 run for the UNDER in totals betting when these two teams meet in Winnipeg. That trend also extends to the club’s current 1-3-0 run, during which they have tallied just nine total goals, including just five even-strength markers.
The Jets continue their current seven-game homestand on Monday night set as +105 home underdogs. The team opens their series with Calgary, which continues with clashes on Tuesday and Thursday night, after dropping a 4-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday. Winnipeg clings to fourth place in the North Division standings despite falling to defeat in two of their past three outings, surrendering four goals in each of those contests. That has helped to maintain a 4-1 run for the OVER in the club’s past five home dates.
