Ducks vs Flames Prediction

When thinking about a moneyline wager in this game, our evaluation indicates that the Flames will take down the Ducks. Nonetheless, given the current odds of -228, I’d recommend getting bet down on the puck line instead, as our predictions point to the Flames winning by more than one goal.

For a puck line pick, we are going with the Flames to win and cover. Look for the Flames to win this one by multiple goals over the Ducks.

If you’re looking at the over/under line set at 6 goals, our prediction is that this game will exceed that mark, and we strongly advise placing a bet on the over.
