ST. LOUIS BLUES vs. CALGARY FLAMES PREDICTIONS

The Blues are coming off a wild 6-5 overtime loss against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night. The Blues fell behind 4-1 after 20 minutes before a furious comeback. The Blues outscored the Oilers 2-1 in the second period to close the gap to 5-3, and they posted two goals in the third to force overtime, tied 5-5. However, Ville Husso allowed a goal to Connor McDavid just 71 seconds into the extra session for the OT loss.

The Flames suffered a 3-2 shootout loss against the Los Angeles Kings at the Saddledome, a second consecutive one-goal setback against a Western Conference contender. The Flames also have four losses in the past six home games, all by one goal. The margin has been razor thin. The margin wasn't thin at all in a meeting Jan. 27, as the Flames were pounded 5-1 in St. Louis in the most recent battle between these two. Prior to that, it was the Flames doing the pounding in a 7-1 rout of the Blues on Jan. 24 in this same venue.

The Blues were dropped by the Oilers in Edmonton in the front end of the home-and-home situation, losing 6-5 in a wild overtime setback. The Blues have dropped six of the past nine games overall, with three losses in overtime and/or a shootout. Four of the losses are by one goal.

St. Louis has managed a 4-1 record in the past five games as a road underdog, and it is still 7-2 in the past nine Pacific Division games. The Blues are also 13-4 in the past 17 against Western Conference teams. However, they're in the second end of a back-to-back, and they're 0-4 in the past four when playing on no rest.

For totals, it's all about OVER results like Friday night in Edmonton. The OVER is 6-1 in the past seven games overall, while going 5-0 in the past five road games. The OVER is also 10-1-1 in the past 12 as a road 'dog, while going 6-2 in the past eight on no rest.

CALGARY FLAMES BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 40-18-9
  • ATS: 36-31
  • O/U: 33-29-5

The Flames have dropped two in a row, both one-goal games, as the UNDER has connected. Calgary has won 17 of the past 23 games at home, while going 20-8 in the past 28 games overall. The Flames are 14-5 in the past 19 against Western Conference teams, too. They're also 9-4 in the past 13 against winning teams, while going 15-6 in the past 21 as a home favorite, too.

As far as the total is concerned, the UNDER is 4-1 in the past five against winning teams, while going 3-1-1 in the past five against Central Division teams. The UNDER is 5-0 in the past five when playing on a day off.

The Flames have struggled against the Blues, winning just once in the past six meetings, but that was a 7-1 win in the most recent home meeting. The favorite is 38-15 in the past 53 meetings, with the UNDER cashing in 21 of the past 31 at the Saddledome.

The Blues have picked up five wins in the past six meetings with the Flames. (AP)

ST. LOUIS BLUES vs. CALGARY FLAMES BETTING CONCLUSION

The Blues have had their way with the Flames in recent meetings, but they're coming off a crazy loss in Edmonton in overtime. Now, they have the quick trip down Alberta Route 2 to Calgary, the first-place team in the Pacific Division. It's a difficult assignment.

The Flames have had their issues lately, losing to the Kings and Avalanche at home on Tuesday and Thursday. Calgary has had a bit of a hiccup lately, but it should be able to get back on track against St. Louis, a team which is a little weary after the quick turnaround.
