8* Friday NHL NSH/CGY
Nashville vs. Calgary,
03/15/2013 21:00 EDT,
Score: 3 - 6
Money Line: -126 Calgary
The Calgary Flames host the Nashville Predators on Friday. Calgary is coming off a 5-2 win over Detroit, while Nashville dropped their last game against Vancouver, 7-4.
Calgary’s last 10 games show a nightmarish home/road split, but one that opens the door to a ton of value for us tonight.
The Flames have played five of their last 10 at home, and five of their last 10 on the road. In those home games they’ve gone 5-0. In those road contests, they’ve gone 0-4-1.
The lack of a sustained winning streak overall allows us to get in on this play at a very reasonable price, while riding a Flames team that shows a different side of itself in their own barn, with impressive home wins over Detroit, San Jose, and Vancouver in their last three at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Nashville’s splits tell a similar story. They’ve lost seven of their last eight road contests.
The Predators are tied for the fewest goals scored in the NHL this season. They’ve scored only five times in their last four trips to Calgary, dropping three of those four games.
The home team is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these teams. Take Calgary.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
