It is the last game of a four-game hometand for the Flames and a tough hockey betting spot for Vancouver as they are in the second half of a back-to-back having played last night at home vs. Edmonton. Here are some stats and trends for this Sunday matchup between the Canucks and Flames.
Bet on hockey has seen these two teams split their last ten games. They have met twice this bet on hockey season with Calgary winning both times by identical 5-3 scores. Both of those bet on hockey contests were also in Calgary. The Flames have won three of the last five at home against the Canucks in hockey betting. Four of the last five at Calgary in this bet on hockey series have gone over the total and overall, eight of the last ten between the two teams have gone over.
Vancouver has done most of their damage at home this season while they have struggled somewhat away from home. The Canucks are 6-10 this season on the road vs. the bet on hockey odds. Vancouver is 5th in the league in goals scored and 10th in fewest goals allowed. They have good enough numbers to win games but on the road they have not gotten it done for those that bet on hockey.
Calgary has been somewhat the opposite of Vancouver in bet on hockey results. The Flames do have a winning record at home but it is not that great. Where they have excelled in hockey betting is on the road. They have 11 road wins which is among the best in the NHL. They have won more often on the road than at home for those that bet on hockey. Calgary has good defensive numbers as they are 6th in the league in fewest goals allowed. Their offense is nothing special though, ranking mid-pack in the league. Calgary has not played that well in recent weeks for those that bet on hockey and their big league over Vancouver in the division has evaporated. This bet on hockey matchup could be a good one for the Canucks to solve their road woes with. It could also get them near the top of the division if they can pull off the hockey betting upset in this game.
