|CAL (-130) @ Fanduel|
The set-up: The Canucks are 1-1 after splitting in Edmonton. Now the Canucks have to play two straight in Calgary. The Flames jumped out to an early lead in their opening matchup in Winnipeg, but a late third-period meltdown has them winless and hungry for a win on their own ice. I'm primarily a situational handicapper, so in my opinion, this one sets up really well for Calgary. I think these teams are evenly matched, but now the Canucks have to face their ex-goaltender on the road.
The pick: The Canucks are a young team, which has issues on the defensive end of the ice. Note as well that the Flames are 7-2 in their last nine after allowing four or more goals in a one goal loss in their previous outing. I'm banking on Calgary finally breaking through with a victory. The price is definitely right on this one as well.
This is an 8* PLAY-BOOK on the Calgary Flames.
