The Flames are in the midst of a six-game road trip and this will be their fifth stop. They are underdogs in hockey betting in this Saturday night matchup at San Jose.
Bet on hockey has seen these two teams start out strongly this season. You could actually make a case that these are the top two teams in the Western Conference. The Sharks have won six of the last ten in this bet on hockey series against the Flames. The teams met four times last year with each team winning twice. The Flames won 3-2 at San Jose and 5-2 at home for those that bet on hockey. The Sharks won 6-1 at home and 2-1 in Calgary. That was a rare road win for Calgary in this hockey betting series considering they have lost four of five at San Jose overall. The last two meetings between the two teams went under the bet on hockey total.
Calgary has been great on the road this season for those that bet on hockey. The Flames have been a big moneymaker away from Calgary this season. At home the Flames are just above .500 but on the road they are sizzling in hockey betting.
Calgary is not doing it with mirrors either. They are ranked in the Top 10 in goals scored and in fewest goals allowed. That is a great way to win for those that bet on hockey. Jarome Iginla is leading the team in scoring and getting some nice help this bet on hockey season while Miikka Kiprusoff is very good again in goal.
San Jose has been one of the best teams for those that bet on hockey. The Sharks are even better than Calgary. They are in the Top 3 in scoring and in the Top 10 in fewest goals allowed. San Jose has been very tough at home in hockey betting and great on the road. While San Jose is great right now for those that bet on hockey, only the playoffs really matter since the Sharks have excelled in the regular season before in bet on hockey only to fall apart in the playoffs. Joe Thornton has been leading the team in scoring as usual and Evgeni Nabokov has been solid in goal.
