Thursday’s matchup between the Predators and Flames is one where both teams have value. Well actually, a case could be made to bet against each team here.
The Predators come into Scotiabank Saddledome having won 5 of their last 6 road games. That being said Nashville has lost 4 of 5 to Calgary including a 5-6 defeat at Bridgestone Arena on Halloween.
The Flames don’t exactly exude confidence in this matchup either, mostly because they have just 3 wins in their last 8 at home. Calgary has lost 3 of 4 overall since the all-star break.
Nashville has been OK since their return from the break, winning 3 of 5. Those three victories have all been on the road as well which does bode well for the Predators on Thursday.
The Preds need to start scratching out some victories as they’ve fallen out of the wild card race, currently 3 points behind these Flames. Calgary is in a bit of a mini-skid so the time to strike is now for Nashville.
The total for Thursday’s game is 6.5, but the Predators offense is still very hit or miss. Nashville was held to 2 goals or less in 4 straight before the break, which continued the 1st game back with a 2-5 loss to Toronto.
The Predators offense seemed to have broken through with a 5-4 win in Washington and a 6-4 win at New Jersey. They have been held to 2 goals total in the last two games though, and just one in regulation.
A game vs. a struggling offense is what Calgary needs, considering the Flames are 26th in the league in scoring. Flames skaters have looked good since the all-star break though, scoring 12 goals in four games.
Calgary is still just 1-3 since the layoff though, as they’ve allowed 19 goals in the four games. The three defeats were also all at the Saddledome as well. The Flames are 13-9-4 on their own ice this season.
The atmosphere should at least be amped up on Thursday as Nashville is trying to chase down Calgary for the 2nd wild card spot in the West. There’s a lot of hockey yet to be played, but this is a great opportunity for padding.
It’s up to David Rittich to help Calgary secure their 5th win in the last 6 games vs. the Predators. The Flames net minder has allowed 12 goals in his three starts since the all-star layoff however.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Predators are 5-1 last 6 road games
- Predators are 2-6 last 8 Thursday games
- Flames are 3-8 last 11 home games
- Flames are 0-5 last 5 as a favorite
- Road team is 6-1 last 7 meetings
- Predators are 1-4 last 5 meetings
Free Nashville Predators vs. Calgary Flames NHL Prediction:
One would think the ‘over’ looks a bit high at 6.5 between two offenses who haven’t exactly been lighting the lamp on a regular basis lately. That means this one is going to end 4-3 of course – but in favor of which side?
You have to go with Calgary considering they’ve played very well vs. the Predators the last two years. Calgary has struggled at home lately though, which is what makes this one a true toss up. Go for the better ROI in that case.
