Money Line Pick
The Flames may be underdogs for Thursday’s matchup against the Predators, but the numbers suggest that they won’t have a tough time on the road. For starters, the team is 19-13-2 away from Calgary, and that includes a solid 18-16 record against the spread. The team is also 6-3-0 over their last nine, and they’ve only dropped three home games since the start of the New Year.
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, the Predators’ standing as favorites in this matchup doesn’t make complete sense when you consider their underwhelming 15-12-4 record at home (including an abysmal 9-22 record against the spread). They’re also only 22-25-7 as favorites this season, and they’re going against a squad that’s 12-12-1 as underdogs.
