Hockey Betting – Edmonton at Calgary

Hockey betting on Saturday includes a late night CBC televised contest as the Calgary Flames host the Edmonton Oilers in a game between two long-time rivals.

The Flames are favored in this bet on hockey matchup at the online sportsbook.

Hockey betting indicates that this is the first of a short-two game road trip for Edmonton and the first of a back-to-back as they are at Vancouver tomorrow. The Northwest Division in the NHL looks to be very competitive this season so Edmonton and Calgary should be going at it all season long as they look to keep pace with Colorado and Vancouver.

Calgary has won six of the last ten hockey betting meetings against Edmonton including both games earlier this month in Edmonton. Both games were won in hockey betting by Calgary by identical 4-3 scores. In games at Calgary, the teams have actually split their last four hockey betting meetings. Three of the last four hockey betting games between the two teams have gone over the online betting total.

Edmonton has been scoring a lot of goals so far this season and that has made them a threat in hockey betting. It has also made them a team to take over the hockey betting total. The Oilers don’t have great goaltending so if they score goals the games are likely to go over the bet on hockey number.

Calgary is also winning games in hockey betting with a solid offense. The Flames have been ranked in the Top 10 in the league in goals scored. They have Jarome Iginla who is always a threat to impact the hockey betting result. The Flames also have a solid goaltender in Miikka Kiprusoff who plays in nearly every game. The Oilers have a new goalie this season in Nikolai Khabibulin and he will probably get the start in this game. Calgary has really been a team to bet over the hockey betting number this season. Six of their first seven games this season went over the bet on hockey total at the online sportsbook. Playing Edmonton definitely helps as both of the previous meetings this season went over the bet on hockey number.
