Calgary +180 at Dallas O/U 5.5 
Recommendation: Calgary

My clients and I cashed a big dog winner on Calgary in their 2-1 OT win at Nashville on Tuesday night and I think the surging Flames are worth a play in this price range as they head to Dallas to face the Stars. It’s not easy to bet against Dallas as they possess the league’s best record at 23-6-1-1 but the Stars have not been quite as dominant in the short term with a 6-4 mark in their last 10 games. Calgary is on a major roll right now going 6-0 in their last six games and the way they gutted out wins on their recent home stand where they won all five games and against some good teams (Dallas, Boston, San Jose, Buffalo, and the NY Rangers) despite several players battling the flu. The Flames players spoke about really wanting to correct their road woes prior to the first game of their current road trip against Nashville and they played a very good game especially defensively holding the Predators to just 22 shots on goal in their 2-1 overtime win. The Flames are getting excellent offensive production from their top players lately with Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan hitting the scoresheet on an almost nightly basis and slowly this team is displaying some of the glimpses of why they made it into the second round of the playoffs last season. Dallas is a great hockey team and extremely potent offensively but they are still prone to the occasional defensive lapse which could be trouble against Calgary the way their offense has been clicking of late. Dallas has the far superior overall record but the current form of these two teams is just about on par with maybe even an edge to Calgary. The Flames have already beaten the Stars once in their previous meeting this season and I think they are absolutely worthy of betting endorsement tonight at this big underdog price.
