Calgary to take on Colorado

A hockey bet Western Conference action on Wednesday will include Calgary visiting Colorado.

The Flames are coming off a crushing home loss on Monday to Detroit so they could really use a hockey betting win on Wednesday at Colorado.

Hockey bet statistics indicate that the Avalanche have won six of the last ten against Calgary so the Flames have their work cut out for them on Tuesday.  It does help them though that Colorado has to play last night at St. Louis.  Colorado has won six of the last ten games against Calgary including all four this season.  What is really strange about the games is that they ended by the exact same score of 3-2.  It is almost unheard of for two teams to play four games in row that end with the same exact score.  Calgary needs to end that streak if they expect to make the playoffs. The Flames lost 2-1 at home to Detroit on Monday and that pushed them three points back of the Red Wings for the last playoff spot in the Western Conference.  The Red Wings and Flames have just 13 games remaining.

Calgary has lost two straight after winning four in a row. "I hope there's some guys disappointed in there. There better be. We found ways to lose two games here when we need to find ways to win games," Calgary coach Brent Sutter said. "Tonight, we had a chance and never made the most of the opportunity. Last night we beat ourselves because we had a brutal first period."

Calgary has had their troubles on the road and that is one reason to consider going against them with a hockey bet. The Flames are 3-7 in their last 10 road games.  They are also 4-12 in their last 16 vs. the Western Conference. The Flames are 2-9 in the last 11 meetings in Colorado.

Colorado has been a good team to take when making a hockey bet when they are at home. The Avalanche are 7-2 in their last 9 home games. The concern in this game is that the Avalanche are 1-8 in their last 9 games playing on no rest.

Calgary has been a great team to take under the total when making a hockey bet.  40 of their last 59 games have gone under with five ties. In this series, the last four meetings have gone under in hockey betting.
