Stars vs Flames Prediction

When making a moneyline pick, my choice is the Flames to come out with a win against the Stars while playing at home. Considering the moneyline odds at +111, I’m placing my bet on the Flames to win outright.

Our projections have the Flames pulling out a win as the underdog. But if you’re not as bullish as we are on the Flames, we’d recommend at least getting a bet down on them to cover the puck line.

With an over/under line sitting at 6 goals, we like this game to surpass that mark and recommend getting a bet down on the over.
