Hockey Betting: Calgary at Phoenix at SBG Global

Nothing goes together betting than hockey betting and love and this match up should have plenty of both in spades.

Hockey betting fans have a special Valentines Day date this year. If you love romance and you love to bet on hockey, then what could be better than the hockey betting show down between the Calgary Flames and the Phoenix Coyotes on Valentines Day?

Hockey betting actually isn’t all that romantic but the quality of play in this bet on hockey match up should make up that. Calgary has been outstanding this hockey betting season and has been a stand out team in the West. Aside from the nearly unstoppable Detroit Red Wings and San Jose Sharks the Flames have clearly been the best of the hockey betting rest this year. With a firm lead in the Northwest division a bet on hockey for the Flames has been a pretty profitable wager this year.

The Coyotes, on the other hand, have not been one of hockey betting’s bright spots. After roughly two-thirds of the hockey betting season in the bag the Coyotes are lingering at the bottom of the Western Conference and have hardly been favored in any bet on hockey match ups this year. But there’s still plenty of hockey left in the season and it’s not impossible that the Gretzsky-led team could emerge from the rubble and make a mad playoff run to cap off the hockey betting regular season.

But if the Coyotes are going to make the big move they’ve got to start winning hockey betting games like the one against the visiting Flames –a tall order, but not impossible. The Coyotes will have to tighten up their defense, which has been awful and some how find someone other than Shane Doan to put the puck in the net.

The Coyotes should be able to score on the Flames, as Calgary defense is not that good for a top tier hockey betting team. But the Flames attack is one of the best in the game with five players with 15 goals or more this hockey betting season. The Flames are also one of only a few teams averaging over 3 goals a game. Incidentally, the Coyotes are one of the few teams in hockey betting giving up at least 3 goals a game.

Bet on hockey fans should expect a shoot-out in this game with the much superior Flames ultimately getting the win in the desert.
