Jets at Flames odds, lines, picks and predictions
Flames 3, Jets 1
AVOID. Figure the true odds for both sides as being buried between these prices.
Against the spread
Puck-possession analytics really back the recent above-water play by Winnipeg. The Flames have been controlling both blue lines and winning a lot of games by 3-plus. let alone 2-plus. There is an Under lean to this contest, but the CALGARY -1.5 (+105) return is worth the risk.
Lost in Calgary’s recent scoring binge is the kind of buttoned-up defense it has been playing. The Flames have yielded just 25.9 shots per game over their last 11 games, including 23.0 SPG across their last four.
With quality goaltending at both ends, BACK THE UNDER 5.5 (+112).
