A rough night last night, where I was pretty off on basically all three picks. The Leafs lost 3-2 but didn’t look too good, although they missed some good opportunities to score.
Lets put that one behind us and come right back with a GAME OF THE WEEK WINNER tonight. I have a 3 unit underdog game of the week going, and a 1 unit play on a home team (below). The GOW play has been sent to clients and will be sent to any new clients instantly (you can click here to sign up).
Game of the Week = SEE ABOVE
Los Angeles Kings @ Calgary Flames – FLAMES TO WIN (-110)
(Note: I’m risking 1.10 units to win 1 unit)
Both teams enter tonight’s game with 21 wins. The Kings are 21-15-8 while the Flames are 21-19-5. Los Angeles is 8-5-5 on the road and enter tonight’s game off a Thursday night loss at home against Dallas. The Kings enjoyed 6 straight home games where they went 3-1-2. Given their opponents (Vancouver, Colorado, Phoenix, Columbus, Washington and Dallas) the Kings would have probably liked to win 4+ of the 6, but will settle for the 8 points. They sit 7th in the tight Western Conference. The Flames are a solid 13-5-2 on home ice, but their road record has them a few points out of a playoff spot as of today (11th place in the West). Calgary has won three straight games (all at home) with wins over Anaheim, New Jersey and Minnesota. I think the Flames should get a boost from the trade that landed them Cammalleri on Thursday night, and I expect a good atmosphere in the Saddledome tonight. Take note that the Flames have won 10 of their last 11 home games, and are 4-0 in their last 4 Saturday games. Calgary is also 6-1 in their last 7 vs Western Conference opponents, and 7-0 in their last 7 as a home favorite. Los Angeles is just 1-4 in their last 5 on the road vs a team with a home winning % higher than .600. Calgary has owned this meeting, taking 14 of their last 19 meetings overall and the Kings are just 2-14-1 in their last 17 meetings in Calgary. The Flames continue to roll at home and with the added boost of Cammalleri reunited with Iginla they should take care of Los Angeles at home. I like the price on the Flames tonight and will take that for 1 unit.
