It’s a good old fashioned toss-up as oddsmakers have made both the Flames and Stars a -110 wager for Tuesday’s opening round. The Stars had 82 points in the regular season and Calgary 79 so this one is close.
Calgary has won two of three games vs. Dallas this season but all came before we even knew what Coronavirus was or the curse that is 2020 had begun. Those wins are still a sign of a good matchup though, especially on neutral ice.
A majority of bettors like Calgary to take the opener. The Flames did take 3 of 4 vs. Winnipeg in the play-in series as the Jets were seriously missing the ‘white out’ home ice advantage.
You have to give credit where credit is due though, Calgary netted 16 goals in the four games since the restart. Calgary has gone 2-1 in three games vs. Dallas this season, but with just a 3 goal differential.
A wager on the Flames on Tuesday is backing Cam Talbot in goal. Talbot gave up 6 goals in four games vs. the Jets which isn’t bad. Talbot also posted a 2.63 GAA during the regular season.
Dallas is a tough wager on Tuesday considering they’ve lost 8 of 9 dating back to before the pandemic. Even in the restart, the Stars have lost 3-5 and 4-0 before somehow getting a win over St. Louis in a shootout on Sunday.
Dallas might put themselves in a rut if they decide to go with Ben Bishop in net on Tuesday. The veteran goaltender is not healthy and gave up 4 goals to Vegas in his only ‘restart-start’ a week ago.
Unfortunately for Dallas, 2nd string goaltender Anton Khubodin is no sure thing either allowing 5 goals in 62 shots faced over the last two games. As a reminder, the total in this game is 5.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Stars are 1-8 last 9 overall
- Flames are 2-7 last 9 head to head
