These long-time rivals always seem to play close games and Saturday night should be no exception. Gamblers looking to bet on hockey will want to remember a few trends regarding this matchup.
Hockey betting trends favor Edmonton a little bit in this game even though the Flames have the better record this season. Edmonton has won 6 of the last 10 meetings against Calgary as hockey betting numbers indicate. At Edmonton, the Oilers have won three of the last five games against the Flames including a 3-2 win back in October for gamblers that bet on hockey. The teams have also met twice in Calgary this season splitting the two games as hockey betting results show.
Calgary has been about a .500 team on the road this season as the hockey betting numbers indicate which has really not been good enough for Flames management. The Flames were really given a scolding about their poor road play earlier this year. Calgary has a Top 10 offense as hockey betting statistics indicate led by Jarome Iginla. Calgary’s defense is just mid-pack as hockey betting league numbers indicate, but usually goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff is there to bail them out.
Edmonton has been nothing special at home this season as they are just around the .500 mark as hockey betting stats show and the lack of urgency on home ice could cost the Oilers a playoff spot. Edmonton has middle of the pack offensive numbers this season while their defense is near the bottom of the league as bet on hockey stats indicate.
The under is 5-3-2 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams as hockey betting numbers show. At Edmonton, the bet on hockey trend to the under is even stronger at 4-0-1. The last two games in Edmonton have seen 3-2 final scores as hockey betting results show.
