Howdy Folks, The Calgary Flames will take on the Ducks in Todays Top Total NHL pick.
The Flames will look to stay hot here after winning their last 3 games convincingly…
and with the Playoffs not far off, look to blast away the Ducks in this encounter.
The Ducks are coming off a nice win themselves, downing the Oilers 5-1.
looking at the last 5 totals trends, we see The Calgary Flames going 3-2 to the over. Scoring 18 goals in their pat 3 games.
The Ducks are trending 4-1-0 to the OVER in their last 5, with just the 1 push.
The Probable goalies= Mike Smith for the Flames with a GAA 2.72 and John Gibson for the Ducks with a GAA of 2.86.
Head to heads we see the totals trending 4-1 to the under.
And its worth mentioning that the Flames are 7-2 to the under in their last 9 games on the road.
However, those last 2 road games and the games that went over.
The total is set at 5.5 for this game, and with the Ducks managing to score 18 goals in their past 5, while giving up 17, the over is worth a look.
The Flames have been good defensively of late though, giving up just 7 goals in their last 5 games.
But I see the offensive trend for both teams continuing here, with a t least enough combined goals to go over 5.5.
Last 5 games averages
The Ducks are averaging 3.6 while allowing 3.4 and The flames are scoring the same at 3.6 but allowing just 1.4.
I dont think thats going to matter here, as the Flames try to blast the ducks a new one on their home ice.
And for all those reasons, Im taking the OVER.
