Hockey Betting – Detroit at Calgary

Hockey betting on Saturday includes what should be a very good game between the Detroit Red Wings and Calgary Flames.

The Red Wings have started the season slowly in hockey betting while Calgary has started the season strongly for those that bet on hockey. Here is a look at the matchup between Detroit and Calgary for Saturday night.

Hockey betting trends favor Detroit in this matchup since they have won 7 of the last 10 games against Calgary. Last season the teams split their four hockey betting meetings though. Calgary split their two bet on hockey contests at home against Detroit last season. They won 5-3 and lost 5-2. All four of the games last season between the two teams went over the hockey betting total.

This is the fifth game of a five-game West Coast road trip for the Red Wings. They were at Edmonton on Thursday in the fourth game of this trip. The Red Wings have started hockey betting slowly for a number of reasons. They have not scored goals consistently and their defense and goaltending has been shaky. Detroit almost always gets a lot of hockey betting respect and that has made them a poor value so far this season. Usually Detroit will turn things around so they could be a team to watch as the season continues.

Calgary has gotten off to a good start this season in hockey betting. They have been very good at home which continues a recent bet on hockey trend for them. Calgary has been scoring effectively this season as they have been in the #1 spot in goals scored for much of the season. Usually when you talk about Calgary and goals scored you mention Jarome Iginla. He is still off to a strong start but he is getting a lot of help including from Rene Bourque who was leading the team in scoring as hockey betting stats showed. Calgary’s defense was nothing special early in the season and that put pressure on Miikka Kiprusoff but he has always faced a lot of shots in his career. He is off to a very good start this hockey betting season and Calgary has been a tough team.

This should be one of the better hockey betting games on Saturday. It can be seen on CBC television and should draw some attention from those that bet on hockey.
