Why Calgary Flames is a good bet to win at +180

Although it’s difficult to beat Boston on the road, Calgary might step it up enough for a huge win. The Flames have performed great on the road in recent games. They’re a terrific 4-1 SU in their last 5. A couple of impressive wins happened against Vancouver and San Jose. Not only did Calgary beat Vancouver and San Jose, but they also pummeled those teams by identical 6-2 scores. Boston’s rabid fans won’t intimidate the road warrior Flames.

Why Boston Bruins are a good bet to win at-210

Boston isn’t unbeatable. On Feb. 22, Vancouver beat the Bruins 9-3. But Boston almost never loses 2 straight. Also, they have huge winning streaks in between losses. Before dropping the match to the Canucks, Boston had won 5 in a row. The Bruins haven’t lost 2 straight since Jan 13 and Jan 14. Both those matches were on the road. At home, the Bruins should prevail.

Flames vs Bruins NHL Betting Analysis

Calgary is a good team, but the Flames are up against it versus the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night. Most hot trends favor the Bruins. They battle the Flames at home and Calgary doesn’t perform well after a victory.,

Also, even though the Flames are 5-1 SU in their last 6 on the road, the lone loss is worrisome. Calgary dropped a game to the L.A. Kings at the Staple Center on Feb. 12. The Kings beat the Flames 5-3. If Calgary can’t step it up against the Kings on the road, they’ll have a heck of a time stepping it up against Boston at the TD Garden. Boston wins.
