The under is 3-1-1 in Flames last 5 vs. Western Conference. Jets are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The underdog is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I know the Calgary Flames are better on paper than they’ve shown so far, and the oddsmakers are waiting for things to change. However, I’m not banking on a Flames team that can’t score and hasn’t won a game since October 25th. The Winnipeg Jets are simply playing their best hockey, no matter how you slice it. I’ll take the extra money for obvious reasons.
