When it comes to a puck line pick, our choice is the Flames to secure the win and cover. Expect the Flames to dominate this one with a multi-goal win over the Sharks.

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.
