Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

There are only one or two teams where Ottawa would be favored and playing against Calgary is not one of them. The Flames have won each of the last four games played head-to-head with the Senators and the favorite, Calgary, has won each of the last four. Although the Flames do not have a strong offensive punch averaging 2.61 goals-per-game but will be facing one of the weakest defenses as Ottawa is allowing an average of 3.36 goals per game.

Prediction: Calgary Flames
