Power Sports' 10* DIVISION GAME OF THE MONTH ~ *SCORCHING* 38-18 RUN!
Calgary vs. Los Angeles,
02/12/2020 22:00 EDT,
Score: 3 - 5
Money Line: -125 Calgary
10* Calgary (10:05 ET): The Flames obviously aren’t as good as they were a season ago, but this looks to be a game where they pick up an easy two points. You may recall Calgary finished first in the entire Western Conference last year. Regression was all but inevitable and right now they are third in the division (Pacific), tied w/ two other teams (Vegas, Arizona). But they are only three points out of first and that’s a lot better than where tonight’s opponent is, that being dead last in both the division and conference!
The Kings have just 43 points, which is 21 fewer than the Flames. The only team in the league with fewer points in the whole league is Detroit. Los Angeles also has a -47 goal differential, again 2nd worst in the entire league w/ only Detroit worse. It’s one thing to be bad and another to also be in bad form and the Kings happen to be both. They’ve lost five in a row, getting outscored 19-7 in the process.
Meanwhile, Calgary is coming off B2B 6-2 wins out on the road. They won at Vancouver (1st place team in the Pacific) as well as San Jose. Avenging two early season losses (both in October), the Flames beat the Kings back on 12.7 by a score of 4-3. To me, this line should be north of -200. The Kings are just that bad and I won’t hesitate to fade them at the current price. Overall, LA has lost 13 of 15. They just got back from a winless East Coast trip, so fatigue could be a factor. 10* Calgary
