Anaheim Ducks vs. Calgary Flames

Friday, March 10, 2023 – 09:00 PM EST at Scotiabank Saddledome

Anaheim Third Game in Four Days

The Anaheim Ducks rank amongst one of the worst teams in the league sitting 3rd last in the Western Conference and allowing the most goals and shots per game as well as suffering offensively scoring only 2.49 goals per game.

On top of this, they now face coming into Calgary having played two of the previous three nights, losing on both occasions 5-2 and 3-2 in overtime.

The Ducks have a 10-26 record on the road overall this season and most of those wins came in a six-game stretch where they went 4-2, although only one of their victories where they significant underdogs, with their average odds cashing at +110.

Calgary to Pick up Rare Home Win

The Calgary Flames have been trending downwards rapidly in recent weeks having now gone 6-9 in their last 15 games. They currently sit in 5th position in the Pacific Division and don’t look likely to make the postseason at this current rate of wins per game.

The Flames are just 1-6 on home ice in their previous seven games and have only cashed as winners in 5 of their previous 15 home games. There is something about being at home this season that’s been one of the contributing factors to this team’s downfall. The Flames have also not won a game in regulation on home ice since the 21st of January.

Calgary still has a slim chance of becoming a wild card, but they need to start winning now, and there’s no better team to be given that chance against than the Anaheim Ducks.

Credit where its due, the Ducks have been better in recent games but their still easy pickings for wins right now.

Stats and Trends

Anaheim Ducks

  • The total has gone under in 4 of Anaheim’s last 6 games.
  • Anaheim is 1-4 in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Western Conference.
  • Anaheim is 1-7 in their last 8 games against Calgary.

Calgary Flames

  • The total has gone over in 8 of Calgary’s last 12 games against an opponent in the Pacific Division.
  • Calgary is 1-6 in their last 7 games at home.
  • The total has gone under in 4 of Calgary’s last 6 games.

The Pick

Our computer believes the Ducks’ bad scoring, bad road form, and 3rd game in four days could lead to a 4-1 defeat tonight. For this reason, we are prepared to lay the -125 juice on the PK line with Bet365.

Funny enough the Calgary Flames have actually the third-worst ATS record in the league this season, covering only 40% of the time. However, if there’s one team we don’t mind opposing in this scenario it’s the Anaheim Ducks. Three games in four days can be hard even for the best of teams.

Despite the Flames’ poor home record, they have been on a 2-0 winning streak on the road and will hope to carry that form into tonight’s home game and hopefully give the Calgary Flames fans their first victory on home ice since the 19th of February.
