Free Pick - Rickenbach NHL Game #1 Friday - Calgary Flames Money Line (+) vs Minnesota Wild @ 9:05 ET - Everyone is jumping on Minnesota here because it is a revenge spot since they lost at home to Calgary a little less than three weeks ago. This has opened up nice line value on the home dog Flames who are off of a shutout win which makes it look like this is a spot to fade them. However, Calgary is 2-0 this season (and 7-3, 70%) the last 3 seasons combined when they are off of a shutout win. As for the Wild, though it looks like a spot to play them since they have revenge, they have actually lost 7 of 12 this season when playing with revenge. Also, Minnesota has lost 52 of 94 (and down $21,300) when they are playing with revenge the past three seasons combined. After allowing 4 goals or more in their prior game the Wild have lost 27 of 46. Also, this season, in road games with a posted total of 5 goals or less, Minny has lost 6 of 9. The Flames have won 19 of 31 the past three seasons combined when they are at home with a posted total of 5 goals. Tremendous home dog line value here and the Flames have won 6 of their last 10 overall while Minnesota has lost 4 of its past 6 games. Free Pick on CALGARY FLAMES on the money line Friday night. Best of luck, Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach
