CALGARY FLAMES vs. ANAHEIM DUCKS PREDICTIONS

The Flames registered a 3-2 victory in Los Angeles Monday, kicking off a four-game road trip. Johnny Gaudreau lit the lamp twice with three points, and Jacob Markstrom made 27 saves to outduel Cal Petersen. Calgary was able to slap the brakes on an 0-2-1 mini-skid which also involved a 3-2 shootout setback in Calgary on March 31 against those same Kings. The UNDER is 3-1 across the past four games overall for the Flames.

The Ducks are looking to bounce back from a 6-1 spanking from the Edmonton Oilers on 'The Pond', and the OVER result was the first in six games after a 4-0-1 UNDER run. The Ducks have had a difficult time lighting the lamp lately, going for two or fewer goals in five of the past six outings. The last time they tried their hand against the Flames, Calgary buried them 6-2 at home on Feb. 16. The Flames also won 4-3 in a shootout in Anaheim on Dec. 3, while the Ducks registered a 3-2 overtime win as moderate underdogs in Calgary back on Oct. 18.

CALGARY FLAMES BETTING ANALYSIS

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

  • SU: 41-19-9
  • ATS: 36-33
  • O/U: 34-30-5

The Flames wrapped up a six-game home stand on an 0-2-1 skid in the final three games from March 29-April 2, while going 2-3-1 in the six-game stretch. The win against the Kings was revenge for its 3-2 shootout loss at home on March 31. Calgary has actually won each of its past two games on the road, with the L.A. win and 5-2 victory in Vancouver on March 19. The last time Calgary had three or more wins on the road also included stops in Southern California against the Kings and Flames, as it rattled off five straight road wins from Nov. 18-Dec. 3.

Calgary has registered four wins in the past five on the road, while going 8-3 in the past 11 against Pacific Division teams. It's also 21-8 in the past 29 games as a favorite, while cashing in six of the past seven as a road favorite. The Flames are also 17-6 in the past 23 against teams with a losing record.

For totals, the OVER is 10-4-3 in the past 17 games on the road, 8-2-2 in the past 12 as a road favorite and 3-1-1 in the past five against teams with a losing overall record.

ANAHEIM DUCKS BETTING ANALYSIS

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

  • SU: 28-31-12
  • ATS: 41-30
  • O/U: 34-35-2

The Ducks have won 32 of the past 36 meetings against the Flames at Honda Center, including an amazing 22 consecutive regular-season games and seven straight playoff contests against the Flames from April 25, 2006 through Oct. 10, 2017.

Anaheim hasn't had that kind of success against the Flames, or anybody, lately. The Ducks are just 20-41 in the past 61 games at home, 15-41 in the past 56 as a home 'dog and 10-43 in the previous 53 against teams with a winning overall record.

In terms of totals, the UNDER is 4-1-1 in the past six games overall, while also going 4-1-1 in the past six against Western Conference teams. The UNDER is 7-2-2 in the past 11 meetings with the Flames in Anaheim, too.

CALGARY FLAMES vs. ANAHEIM DUCKS BETTING CONCLUSION

The Flames righted the ship with a 3-2 win against the Kings, but Calgary still hasn't been hitting on all cylinders lately. Since a nine-goal outburst against Edmonton on March 26, the Flames have managed a total of 10 goals, or 2.5 goals per game across the past four outings. It has allowed 13 total goals, so a minus-3 goal differential across four games is a little on the rare side for the first-place Flames. Calgary still has a healthy plus-68 goal differential, while leading Edmonton by four points in the Pacific Division with two games in hand.

Picking the Ducks is risky business, as they just have a 5-0 win against the Arizona Coyotes on the road in the past 12 games (1-8-3) dating back to March 6. That March 6 game against the San Jose Sharks was also their last victory one home ice, so that's one full calendar month that the home fans have suffered. However, I am expecting the Ducks to maintain their mastery of the Flames on home ice, as Calgary just isn't playing very well lately.
