The teams met last night in Edmonton. Gamblers that bet on hockey will want to be aware that it is the last regular season game for both teams.
Hockey betting stats show that before last night the teams had split their last ten meetings overall. The teams have also split their last four games at Calgary as hockey odds results indicate. They have split the two meetings in Calgary this season as the Oilers won 4-3 back in October while the Flames won 6-4 in December as hockey odds results indicate.
Gamblers that bet on hockey will really want to look at the standings before this game gets underway. It might be huge for one team in regards to the playoffs and meaningless to the other. It is also a big rivalry game as well. It all depends upon the playoff situation so keep these things in mind for your Saturday hockey betting.
Edmonton has actually been pretty good on the road this season in terms of hockey betting. The Oilers are almost always an underdog and their record on the road has been solid for gamblers who bet on hockey. How Edmonton wins games is somewhat of a mystery since their offensive and defensive numbers rank in the bottom half of the league as hockey betting stats show. Goaltender Dwayne Roloson has been excellent though and he can steal some games in hockey betting.
Calgary has been excellent at home this season for gamblers who bet on hockey. The Flames have a solid offense that ranks in the Top 10 as hockey betting stats indicate. Jerome Iginla has led the Flames in scoring this season. Their defense can struggle at times but goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff is good and he makes the key saves that impact hockey betting.
Before last night’s game the over/under in hockey betting odds was 2-6-2. The only two games that went over in the last ten were in Calgary. The Flames have been a slight over team at home this season in terms of the hockey betting number.
