I am briefly back in the chair today after suffering through working retail the last two weeks, lets see how the Flames and Kraken stack up
Seattle has the advantage on the attack while Calgary has the advantage in defending. Marginal from the median in both cases. Both teams score on average 3 goals a game so that’s some info we can work with. Most likely outcome is something like 4-3 Calgary winning but that would involve at least a PP goal from my perspective. No power play goal Seattle could steal this thing 3-1 or even 3-2. Divisional fight for a playoff spot I’m hoping for some high quality hockey.
Primary Bet – Andrew Mangiapane to get 1+ points (+105)
He was specifically name dropped as taking bad penalties in the game against the Oilers – worthwhile bet to say he’s going to bounce back. On a line that has seemingly never faltered with Backlund and Coleman it’s my assumption that Mangiapane is going to respond with a big performance.
Secondary Bet – Rasmus Andersson under 1.5 shots (+115)
Defencemen usually have to shoot through traffic from the point. Seattle is no slouch in their own end so Razz walking in and shooting clean on the goalie isn’t going to hurt. The power play could torch us here but the shots should be coming from the flanks or the bumper not the point. Riskier bet but a good payout.
Tertiary Bet – Calgary Flames to WIN and OVER 5.5 total goals (+205)
I told myself i was going to stop picking combo bets and yet here i am doing the same thing. I guess the “new year, new me” thing doesn’t kick in until Jan. 1. Anyways i said earlier I’m thinking a 4-3 Calgary win, this is just me putting money where my mouth is. Always riskier with a combo bet but the payouts are bigger.
Remember bet safe and have fun!
